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 remember some of the vehicles that passed through auction there.
It used to be that the news would tell you what happened and you had to make an opinion on the subject. Now the news tells you their opinion and you have to decide if it even happened.

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.
