I bought my 1994 Honda Civic Coupe EXA new on 10/4/1993. I've traveled all over the country with it, I still do. We've gone through 46 states (and parts of Canada), traveled over 340,000 miles and seen all sorts of weather - Freezing Cleveland Winters to Death Valley in the summer.... Up mountains 10K feet in Colorado, to below sea level in New Orleans. All 4 corners of the USA - LA, Seattle, Maine, Florida, and almost everywhere in between. I even asked my ex-fiance to marry me in the car. She said yes, but that relationship didn't last, the car, however, has.... The stories this car could tell. The sights it's seen. The tens of thousands of car's it's passed on the highway. : ) It has always been the perfect car for me. Fun, fast, & sporty. I can throw my bike in the back, go for cross country road trips, zip around town. It still gets over 30 mpg, sometimes I've gotten as high as 45 mpg, and a couple of times I got 60 mpg! Not sure how, but every now and then I get crazy mpg. My 9 year old niece calls it her car and I just borrow it. So hopefully in 7 more years, I'll turn the keys over to her and we'll have another honda lover in the family. Hoping to get to 500K, but I don't drive as much daily right now as I used to, so it will take a while. And yes, it's still the original engine, clutch, and manual transmission! Love my Honda!
