Got you all beat! 1975 Honda Civic 1200. Aaah, the EB2 engine, 1238cc of single overhead cam fun, running through a 4-speed manual transmission out through 12" wheels. It's a piece of garbage, it's got crap brown paint with cream-of-crap interior, it's rusting, it's a slug, its suspension is questionable... my car is my older brother in the family, I love it for all its faults.

Nothing wrong with an old CVCC Honda. My younger brother used to have one. Got better mileage than my motorcycle....42mpg. Funny little car. Back when Japanese cars were made for Japanese sized people.

I know that has to be a parachute? But to me it looks more like an UFO? What exactly is that?

The CVCC is the 1.5L iron block emissions control version (How clean was it? Clean enough to be the only vehicle to ever pass California Emissions WITHOUT a catalytic converter on the exhaust... and that was 30 years ago! No "market" for a car that does better today, I guess.). Mine's the 1.2L aluminum block for the rest of the world; shorter nose, more power, less torque, waaay less weight to drag around. I get about 27 MPG in the city, and I've hit 42 MPH highway though on that trip the amount of oil I was burning made up for a lot of the gas I wasn't. :) But man, highway speeds, you get those 155r12's spinning so fast...

I'm 5'11", and with the seat all the way back, the pedals are in just the right spot. And while he complains bitterly about speedbumps, my 6'3" 230 lb friend rides in the passenger seat quite often. It was an interesting day when we tried to cram him into the back seat though. :)

Aaaand the #1 best thing about my Civic: you can't beat a hatchback for carrying rockets to the field!

Sorry, you can't tell from the photo, but that's an old Custom Satellite Drone. I think I was using the stock 18" silver mylar chute. It looks cool in the sunshine! :D
