    Good Cheap Runner — very little maintenance required to operate. car will take one hell of a beating. car is a blast to drive, and handles exceptionally well given that its a 1.5 L. i quite like the square styling on the exterior. all in all I'd buy one again.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: It drives like a go-cart

    Cons: written off very easily

    Stock Honda Civic — This car gets me from point A to point B only. It has great fuel economy. Built with quility matarials of its time unlike new plastic cars its tough and resisted its test against time. I drive it like a maniac and the overall weight of the car makes it fun to take on twisty roads.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: i do all the work on it

    Cons: code 8 pgmfi test lol

    Great Budget Hotrod (as Long As You Don't Get Too Carried Away) — These cars a good in stock condition. But with a twin cam 1.8, stiffer suspension, sticker tires and four wheel disk brakes they are great. Quick, fun and amazing handling with few modifications, while still being decent on gas. My 89 civic hatch has held its own against brand new cars costing 10 times what I paid for it.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: this is a fun car to drive

    Cons: the urge to upgrade and modify can become expensive

    1989 But Feels Like 2010! — the car is 20 years old, 13 years owned and she's still going, needs some body work but she's a beauty! engine is a baby got it rebuilt just a few years back. Can't find a car like this anymore!

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: it's been in the family for 13 years and now she's mine

    Cons: my brother didn't maintain it very well.

    Great Economy Car — This was my first car. I absolutely loved this car and had it for a very long time. it had an upgraded D16 in it, but only by a couple of years. It only had about 90hp. Acceleration was lacking, but it rode very smooth. I personally liked the look of it, although I liked the CRX better.

    Pros: comfort, looks, ride quality

    Cons: power
