A $27,000 Civic? It's Getting Absurd

Just my opinion, but at that price, for around $27,000 for the 2016 Honda Civic Touring Edition, you can grab yourself a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes, BMW, or Lexus or for that matter, a hopped up Toyorta Camry or save a few thousand and go with a Corolla or the Honda Fit.

Motortrend's Frist Test Review proved pretty awesome, but the vehicle that they used was the top of the line Civic Touring Edition, which by the way, did I mention, is $27,000!!! It's powered by an awesome brand new turbo engine but paired with an automatic CVT, I'm leaning more and more towards the no. How much is the Si or even the rumored Type-R going to be? Abusrd.

Saying Goodbye!

After a good 23 years of family ownership, the 1985 Mercedes Benz 300D Turbo Diesel has left the Nicolas family. When it really came down to it, I actually couldn't part with it and made the new owner a deal that I would get a chance to see it again after he converted it to run alternative fuel, fix the rear damage and upgrade the upholstery. I'm excited to see how Turbo will look, but I grew up in that car. Backstory: I post it on craigslist just under 24 hours ago, and boom, it's gone. I basically inherited the car when I was in high school, and drove here in between the civics and c-classes that I went through, but Turbo always just had a special place in my heart and mind.  She was the ultimate surfer's beach mobile and that is what I used her for.  It was something to always kick back in and enjoy the San Diego weather!  She always proved to just drive when I wanted her to drive and now, I might be trying to find another W123 body style to replace her.

By Turbo!

She'll be missed!
