The last time I drove my old Honda Civic hatchback (3-door) was just after a blizzard in early 1999. That little car was able to traverse all kinds of chunky downtown snow-ice during the years I lived on streets that don't get plowed curb-to-curb. I was fearless about parking that thing, mainly because it fit anywhere and I could pretty much push it out of trouble myself. I could also slippy-slide it on the side streets, making it feel like the General Lee in winter months.
It was the kind that had a flat back end on it and I had a HUGE Bucky Badger sticker on the window so that every time I looked in the rearview mirror, Bucky would wink back at me. Duct tape held the trim on and it had dual exhaust pipes, for some reason. At one point, the radio and heater were both busted, so I would offer my date a blanket and the boombox to make her ride more comfortable.
