Had I been looking at a car like this 25-30 years ago, it would have had to have had a stick in it. As it was, this one was bought used (it's a former Honda Corp car, our local dealer won it in an auction that Corp put on to see who would get it to sell) with 9600 miles on it. Fully loaded car, my color, wife fell in love with the HFP body kit. "Just look at it compared to a regular coupe. The headlights and tail lights POP on this one." Needless to say she talked me into it. Now of course, she won't ride in it because it's too rough for her (she got old). I took it back to Missouri two summers ago, by myself and had a good time with it. For the whole trip I avg'd 28 mpg, and that includes climbing over the Rockies on the way home. It gobbles up interstates like there's no tomorrow.
