This showed up at the auction, 1990 Civic hatch with 202k KMs. Automatic sadly, but it is in nice condition.


OK so I haven't posted a picture online anywhere since the last time I did here, and forgot you have to host the pic somewhere first haha. Well if I get the Civic I will post pic

I just saw one of these driving down my street (so far out of its tax bracket, it must be lost, haha!):





First one I've seen in the wild.

That's a Gurgel. Not related to the rear-engined Fiats. Well, it was some sort of attempt to replace the Beetle in Brazil, but it failed due to politics. The engine is a 0.8L flat-twin.

I'm sure this one would only be considered quite eco from an older American perspective, but this Brazilian Maverick stands out in the crowd with its stock 2.3L OHC 4-banger. Often they're swapped for the 302W.



Not sure if this Escort has the 1.0L or the 1.6L engine









Gurgel BR-800, predecessor to the Supermini

Saw a Honda Clarity and quite a few Mirages on my drive down to college yesterday and today. Prii were as abundant as always.

My friend just bought a '92 Metro convertible for $800, but it's the 3 speed auto, so he only gets 35 MPG. His dad has a '91 Metro XFI that gets 50 MPG in the summer without trying. Both are low mileage and rust free.

I still don't see the hybrid versions so often as the conventional ones
