The Civ is great but so is the 900. I have been smitten with the 900 Turbo since I saw a black one in a film called " Moving" with Ricahrd Prior. I still love the desgin and I think it's a stunning car. The old 900 still seems popular across the pond if recent American films are anything to by.

Cheers Lads.

The said 900, me Mam bought it for me Dad in '92 for the sum of 22,000!!!!!!!!!!!!! it has covered just 75,000 miles and is still all original, last year I put a full Abbotts Racing(proffesional SAAB tuners) exhaust on it, sounds lovely and its not the size of a stench pipe, just a nice oval chrome tail peice.

This will now probably cover about 1,500 miles a year now and the Honda 2,000 miles a year.

Isn't the "k" the last of the production of that type of 900 too ? It's certainly a shape that divides opinion you either love it or hate it I think. Much like the Civic really.

Thats is why I like the Honda, it's the only car on the road that looks different.

Not yet! I'm waiting 'til winter so I can drive up the bum of a gritter, that way I can knacker the whole front end including the fog lights, headlamps, windscreen, glass roof and the air con condensor, I like to make a good job of thing.

Saying that, I spent 4 hours polishing it today with some of that Meguires Carnubu wax, every single mm was covered including door shuts, hinges, under bonnet, wheels.... etc, etc.
