let me introduce you. my car is a 1995 honda civic coupe ex. it's a conundrum of spartan efficiency and creature-comfort conveniences.
- no a/c... but does get hotter than a devil's dingaling in the dead of winter on setting 1 of 4.
no cd player... but it does have a tape deck so i can plug in my ipod with one of those tape adapters. works for me!
no fancy spoiler... but it does have power windows, power sunroof, and cruise control.
- dent on hood: from out of the ethers, a shoe came flying and hit my car as i was driving home on i-88 from dekalb
dent on passenger door: happened in the parking garage of a high-rise on lake shore drive while i was at a cheer staff holiday party ages ago.
dent on rear bumper: drunk lady just coasted into me at a red light. someone she knew had just given birth and she seemed a little distracted.
i'm not gonna lie to you people -- she reeks. especially in the summer, there is a disgusting odor that wafts from the upholstery. perhaps it's from all the perspiration. i've driven to des moines in august in sweat-soaked clothing with my head out the window, gagging on cow-ass stench.
what's great about the sled? she runs like a dream and has needed very little work. she's reliable, economical, and easy to park in the city. the driver's side flank is virtually flawless. despite a small custody battle and what i believed to be backbreaking payments for my meager salary of yore, she's paid for and she's all mine!
