Went looking at civics Thursday - $4995.00 "market" price adjustment. .lx/ ex/ sport it didn't matter, 10 cars all sedans. Columbia, MD needless to say not interested at that price.
I wanted one of these back in late 83 but let it be known this $5698 version(0-60 in about 15 seconds)is the base model, the Civic DX and S were much better. Also, this base model didn't come with A/C(probably at least an $500 option) nor power windows. My dad did buy the 1984 Civic S hatch for approx $7,000 and along with the 1984 CRX BOTH were revolutionary models and got me addicted to Honda's. Finally, for a little perspective back in 83 $5,698 was almost exactly my yearly salary so no, these Honda's weren't cheap at all.My oh my how things have changed...
I am keeping my 2019 CTR. It's my toy! I do not have the Si yet. March 2022 delivery. My daily had a major mishap so I'm driving my '87 FX16 now. Runs great, but old, bouncy (lowered suspension and LSD), loud, and no A/C. It will work until the Si arrives. I won't drive the CTR in bad weather. Bought the CTR on Valentine's Day 2020. It now has 8,900 miles on it! Mostly going to and from autocross events.Well I plan to only get one because I live in New England so I would not want to get 2 FWD cars lmao, I plan to get a Type-R and probably a Ford Raptor R at some point, having a Type-R and an Si must be a blast though, I just don't see a point for me personally, you plan on upgrading to a new gen Type-R at some point? Or even a 2020-2021? WIRELESS Apple Carplay alone is worth the upgrade for me, I wasn't even going to consider buying a new car, any car that is, until it had Wireless Carplay, it's such a big thing for me and I am learning the same for other people as well.
