Can this classic be flat-towed? We are

Don't need the extra credit- I usually get NO credit- flat towing is the worst way of hauling a car behind your RV- period-


79 CIVIC?. I havent seen one of those in years.. lol I WOULD NOT reccomend flat towing this type of car.

Ok, I guess I had better rephrase this question. I'm asking a technical question related to the transmission, seeking technical information. Anyone knowledgable about this specific transmission and drivetrain situation have an informed opinion?
