FS in Tucson: 2005 Honda Civic LX
« on: June 26, 2015, 12:13:29 AM »
Hi folks -

Some friends of mine who currently live in Tucson are making a job move back to the east coast, and are selling their second car, the titular 2006 Honda Civic LX.

http://tucson.craigslist.org/cto/5088657998.html  $6400, and less than 65k miles (which, as many of you know, is barely broken in for a Honda).

Oh, it's also a manual transmission...

So, anybody got a teenager needing a good car?

    Anybody know a modern teenager who can drive a manual?  :-\

    Meh. Honda clutches are very forgiving - stalling one is more like a polite sputter out than getting whiplash, unless you *reaaaaalllly* screw it up.

    Much easier than the VW clutch I learned on. Form of exercise, that was.

    Manual transmissions are currently the best anti theft device on the market right now.

    I learned to drive a shift in a 75 Pinto station wagon.

    I loved watching the confused look when people jumped in my old truck and realized there was column shift other than automatic.

    Sounds like a good deal on the Honda.

     :rotfl  Now, imagine it in a '53 GMC with the ignition switch on the instrument panel and the starter button on the floor to the left of the brake pedal.  It would take a high school shop class a half hour to figure out how to start it and another half hour to actually drive it away.

    Left of the brake?  Interesting.  My 51 Chevy p/u had it right of the gas pedal.  Battery was under the passenger floorboard, master cylinder under the driver's floorboard.  I learned a lot on that old truck.  Sigh.

    Actually, I misspoke - it was to the left of the clutch pedal - all the way over where the old headlight dimmer switches used to be.  Just inside the door opening and a little way toward the firewall where the floorboard started to ramp up.
