Default 72 Honda 600

Most of you won't remember seeing these on the road '72-'73 just before the first Civic. I had the coupe model. Only new car i ever bought. It was $1600.
It zipped around with a 600cc two cylinder MC engine. Love what he did with this sedan.

That's a flashback! I'd been having car troubles & my mom wanted me to get a new car. I was just starting out & there were very few cars in my price range so I bought a new 600 Coupe... $1,650. It had a 2 cylinder motorcycle engine that got 50mpg! Gas was really cheap & it only cost about $1.25 to fill it up & when I'd tell the guy to fill it up they'd get PO'd so I'd just say... give me a dollars worth! Drove it for a couple years & bought an MGB which I loved & so did the chicks!

My friends called it the Yellow Submarine!

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Only ever saw one of those wjc. Looked much like a Sprite or Midget but i would bet it was way more reliable.
