So, towards the late end of last year, I bought myself my first Honda. I’ve owned nothing but Toyotas (corollas to be exact) until this car. I was trying to find a nice daily that gets good gas mileage, soooo my first thought was, why not get a civic? I came across a deal for a 1988 EF hatch that I could NOT pass up. It was sooooo clean for an 88 model. I daily-ed it and was getting about 40mpg. FORTY!
My 86, the most I ever got was 29mpg. Right now, it’s getting about 17-19mpg (bad tune…). So this car was getting DOUBLE!
I was dailying it until a mishap with an oak tree. I don’t want to get into the details, but this is what it looks like now:
I thought about selling it. I thought about parting it out. But then…I thought about dailying it anyways. So, for now, I am keeping the EF dreams alive! I’m dailying it again now (and it’s cold as heck without that back window). I’ll probably end up swapping a junkyard hatch on there and some red tape for the lenses and call it a day.
