Thread Name: BS: How good/bad is your car?
Subject: RE: BS: How good/bad is your car?
I keep losing cars to teenage drivers, who then destroy them in a short time...
Heric has a 1988 Honda Accord, the cool-looking one with the flip-up headlights. I had a dark metallic red 1989 Accord with gold pinstriping and gold wheels, and I thought it was a perfect car. I promised to sell it cheap to my girlfriend's stepdaughter when she completed two semesters of college, which I thought she would never do - I was wrong, and sold the car to her for a song. She promptly bashed it up, and sold it a while later.
I bought a bright red 1999 Honda Civic two-door, which I loved even more than the Accord, but that went to my stepson when he started to commute to college this year. So far, no damage - but I rarely get to drive it any more.
So, this year, I bought a rather staid 2006 Civic from the estate of a dead priest, who had driven the car less than 10,000 miles. After two sexy red cars, this one is a bit of a letdown, but I have to admit that it's wonderful to drive and that is has a terrific sound system.
The "Silver Ghost" is the sixth Honda I've purchased, and all have been perfect cars.
