Had to retire my ZionMobile today


After having had this 93 Honda Civic for 10 years I finally had to say good bye to it. It was probably the most mechanically sound used car I've ever owned it never failed a single smog test to. But even with 205,000 miles on it and still running relativity well it was never the less time to move on. Kinda had this shitty feeling come over me when I drove the car to the auto salvage yard like when you have to take a terminally ill pet to get euthanized. Anyways, I know this doesn't make for the most interesting of postings but I just felt like I had to do something after 10 years of loyal and reliable service from this work horse. Just like with The Millennium Falcon she didn't look like much but she had it where it counts.

This also would have made a great bumper sticker left click to enlarge

  1. Ahhh... condolences. I had a little red Honda years ago and wrecked it in an accident, cried like a baby. They're good cars.

    1. thanks, but the $1000 the state of California is gonna give me for retiring that car and the 2006 Honda Civic coupe EX i just bought the weekend before eases the pain. CA has this buy back program in which they will offer $1000 to any 94 and older vehicles that are still running and up to date with their registration. apparently it's an air quality matter.
