The car is completely being eaten away by rust.
Brake cylinders started to leak oil on both of the back brakes, but it only cost $25 for each and I changed it myself.
Muffler broke and makes a popcorn sound.
Windshield is very badly broken.
Car has a leak in the back seats and trunk.
When I first got the car, the engine ran very badly; the timing was completely off. I took the timing belt off and moved it forward, which fixed the problem and made the car much faster.
This is my first car; I got it in the last year of high school for only $600. The car looks like crap because of all the rust and dents; the last owner took it to Calgary and parked it outside in a very bad hail storm, so now the car looks like a golf ball.
The engine of this car has to be the best engine Honda has made; at 340,xxxKm it still burns NO oil and runs great. The twin carb system is great at higher RPMs over 3500. The car runs very strong and also is very good on gas. It only costs $40 to fill it up, and I can go 550 Km with a full tank.
The car is not fast, but OK for its age. It only has 100 hp, but weighs only 970KG. I can beat early 90s Civics and most 90s American 4 cylinders.
The best part of the car it the handling; my car has no power steering, but even without it, it handles great. The car is very low to the ground and with the bucket seats inside, you almost feel like you're sitting on the ground.
The interior is very nice and compatible; great seats for long trips, and the power sunroof is great on summer days.
Overall it is a great car. I have had it only for 30,xxx km and have been very surprised it is still alive. I drive the car like I stole it and it has never let me down. It is a perfect first car; fast, but not so fast that you can kill yourself easily.
