Junkyard Find: 1983 Honda Civic S

Only the few examples of the Civic S remain, so this is an unusually singular findThe Honda Civic started life as the very sensible manage to buy automobile which was more fun to expostulate than acupuncture Corollas as well as rackety Colts, though by the early 1980s Honda motionless which it was time to sell an explicitly sporty version. So, late in the prolongation run of the second-generation Civic, the Civic S chronicle was developed. The S, which paved the way for the mythological Si Civics after in the decade, was black with snazzy red stripes as well as packed the 1,488cc CVCC engine making 69 horsepower instead of the ordinary 62-horse 1,335cc unit. These cars are wretched singular today, as well as this the single in Denver is the first example I have ever seen in 35 years of creeping around wrecking yards. You wish rare? Top this. Photo by Murilee Martin This automobile appears to be the rust-free Colorado native, the bit banged-up though certainly restorable as well as nobody cared sufficient about it to buy it from its last owner, or to snag it during the auction which probably finished up handing it over to the wrecking yard for only over scrap value. Yes, these cars were slow as well as jouncy as well as loud by 21st-century standards, though early Volkswagen GTIs were nearly as miserable (compared to modern-day machinery) as well as appear to have no problem anticipating loving owners. I suspicion about grabbing this grille to hang upon my garage wall, though motionless to leave it for the 2nd-gen Civic restorer... if such even exists. Photo by Murilee Martin I have owned the few second-gen Civics (and I expostulate the 5th-gen Civic today), as well as they did the lot with their insignificant allotment of engine power. Still, the marketplace has spoken, as well as it says which the first-year Civic S is not valuable.
