Only another week or so before I get to go pick up the basket case I'm getting for free . I've been Insightless for 2 years now and it's been killing me. Currently driving an 04 Civic and it feels like a big fat turtle in comparison.
Fat turtle, larger and much heavier than the mid '90s and earlier Hondas. Hondas got obese compared to what they were.
