My third car is my second Civic. When I moved to US, I was absolutely certain what car I was buying. 92-95 Civic Si. I still consider this car to be the most beautiful Civic ever made, and one of the most beautiful cars overall.
So, I set off and pretty fast found one from private party for reasonable money, and proceeded to buy it. My first two cars were ”exotic”, and this one followed the suit – it is Canadian, so living in US I have speedometer marked in km/h and daytime running light. And I have some rust, too. Coming from Moscow, where all used cars are more or less rusted, I did not realize that here I can buy one completely without rust, so I did not pay much attention to the small amount of rust.
For several years it was my only car, we had a lot of adventures together, it took a fair amount of abuse from my wife learning how to drive and from bad mechanics. I had to replace some things along the road, though. Some of them due to normal wear, some due to bad mechanics, and some due to my negligence. I did replace distributor, ECM, driveshafts, rubber parts in suspension – and that’s pretty much it, not counting consumables like wipers and brake pads. It has 220000 km on odometer now.
I still have it sitting on my driveway. I don’t have much use for it now, but I hate selling my cars, so it acts as occasional spare car for my family and friends, as a toy for my younger son, and as a shelter for mice sometimes.
My second car is Chevrolet Spark.....I am in love with this car because of its great features...I can say it gives you Comfortable drive on bumpy roads, good fuel economy to save money
I m feeling proud to own this Chevrolet Spark.
