Not T-totally sure, but I know where my beer cans went! Hope they remember to feed
the squirrels that make this car run. Having much laughter here!

I owned one of these in 1986 when I was 18. It was a 1976, Orange in color with a black interior. I loved it! I delivered pizza with it but ultimately beat it too hard and something on the bottom end of the motor went...still miss it. Thanks for bringing this to us!

In retrospect, I suppose these first-gen civics look pretty silly. But in the mid-70's Honda was on the cutting edge of automotive innovation, with a sporty, fuel-efficient front-wheel drive vehicle with a transverse mounted engine. This design was influenced by the Mini and, in turn, set the stage for the VW Rabbit/Golf. As a Honda owner/fan, I find it somewhat sad that Honda vehicles are mostly quite conventional now.

This gen of Civic is the definitive econobox.

Great little car. There isn't enough room on the left side cowl for a brake booster, so Honda mounted it on the right side and used a transverse mounted rod to actuate it-very clever design.

Yeah Justin, it set the stage for everything that came after it. As I recall, the CVCC
engine was the first eco-friendly unit ever produced. It always met the US clean air
standard each year without smog controls. It had a lot of pep too. I don't see how
they keep improving it, but they do!

I had a yellow '78 Civic hatchback in 1984. Black vinyl interior with 4 speed manual and manual choke. used it to take four people camping with all our gear(and beer). It smoked so bad, I was pulled over by the Environment Canada patrol. Had the engine rebuilt in 1985, then the transmission went, so I sold it to a friend who had another '78 to use for parts.

McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt gave some hints about a similar car. According to Mr. Flewitt, the successor to the hybrid P1 will either remain hybrid or receive a fully electric motor. He considers the last option the least likely. “I like carzaamin(.)com/blog/suzuki-alto-for-sale-in-lahore-pakistan/ electric cars, I’ve been driving quite a lot lately, and they are suitable for regular use, and for going to the race track. They have incredible performance, ”said Flewitt. “But the ride time (its power reserve) on electric vehicles is really limited. Take the 765LT as an example. If it was an electric car, you could, maybe, 30 minutes of time to ride on it, using all its power, and then you would have to recharge the batteries. This is very inconvenient." It is worth noting that the British government has adjusted the ultimatum for internal combustion engines - now companies should electrify their cars by 2035
