Surprised Civic owner !!!

A year ago if you had told me I would be buying a Honda Civic I would have thought you were a current short of a pudding.

I've been used to driving somewhat more thirsty vehicles such as the 5.4 liter King Ranch Expedition I just brought over from Texas.
However common sense has prevailed and with a fuel consumption of less than 10 to the gallon here in mid Wales, I have taken the plunge with what I know to be one of the best small cars.

I'm actually looking forward to driving it.

For anyone who is interested you can see pics of the KR on the F150m 0nline form that I have been contributing to for many years.

Whats it all coming to....!!!! - F150online Forums

A friend of mine used to have a Ford F150 Flare side.... V8 Engine with I remember were 4.5 litres of evilness beneath the bonnet!!!

I still remember the day he let me drive it... I'll never forget such experience.
As the speedo rised the fuel meter was going down, it was like throwing money thru the window!!

Good luck with you spaceship!, I'm sure you'll find it more "suitable" for todays petrol prices!!
