Albino White

My friend has done his sleuthing.

It's still Albino.

But it's only got three doors!

A card has been left.

Pottsy will never know that his name has been used in vain!

We await the results.

It must be the influence of l-noel going through the town I reckon, that causes these unusual sightings!

"You haven't got the guts to pull the trigger"', is sometimes a silly thing to say!"

White?, it seems gorgeous.

Millie, do you fancy a change?

Wash your mouth out Charlie!

looks like somone has had that done privately

White is one of the worst colours for those worried about re-sale value
wonder if he/ she knows that

I think you are all nuts for wanting a white car

I quite like it, but still prefer Silver.

Brodick might be right about it being done privately - the Civic & Type S badges are in the wrong place on the tailgate, so it could well have been resprayed.

I like it. I'd love it in a Type-R. White has always suited Honda Type-Rs.

Honda are missing a big trick by NOT producing a white Type-R

As it is not red, perhaps it's not a proper Civic anyway?

......and the badge was an after thought.

......just a thought!

Not my cup of char at all, I'm afraid.

Looks a bit tacky - like a girl in white stilettos!
Wasn't spotted in Essex by any chance?

White looks good when it's new but 3 years down the line it may start to loose its shine.

I had a white Mk1 Granada 2 door Coupe that went shabby very quickly.

Personally, I wouldnt buy another white car (had one before), but the Civic does look quite nice like this.

But the Civic badge looks HORRID like that.

Don´t think that that rules out a Swindon job though - we have seen other examples of their handywork.

With the badge like that, it has to be a home made job. Looking at the pics, it seems like the owner may have just painted bit of his house and the top of his wall white. Maybe he just had a bit of left over paint...

Whites not my cup of tea, but girlfriend just bought a Suzuki Swift in white with two black viper stripes and I have to say it grows on you plus it's a head turner.

If it's a home made job, I am surprised they didn't get the grey trim done at the same time.

Looks like they had some over-spray onto the number plates too.

It's a bit yuck in my opinion. Looks like it was modelled on a skunk or a panda...

My Millie came thro' then PDI with a badge on squint like that.

Mind you that Red is so popular, that one or two must come out spoilt I suppose.

One of my neighbours actually pointed that out to me on delivery day!

It looks like a very professional paint job to me.

And it looks very similar to the white that comes on the S2000.

Absolutely horrendous... just awful.

White is nice in a showroom, but not on the streets.
But hey, that just me..
