I saw an ad in a magazine in late 1991...a new model Honda that boasted about its fuel mileage. I test drove a red Civic VX in February 1992, and came home with it that day. On the very first long road trip I took, the car got 53 mpg over 1000+ miles of driving. That was 15 years ago, and the car still gets 43 mpg per tank of gas. I cannot think of anything else to write at the moment in praise of this car, and I don't have any specific photos...yet. She needs a paint job and some TLC, but I plan on giving her to my son when he turns 16 in two years. Thanks Honda for proving that an impressive car doesn't need to be big or fast or run on some funky kind of fuel!
