The Honda Civic was introduced in July 1972 as a two-door coupe, followed by a three-door hatchback version that September. The Civic evolved from having an 1170 cc engine (1973) to having engines with larger capacities and more creature comforts (air conditioning, power windows, etc.) through the 1980s, 1990s and into the 2000s. As the Civic's reputation for quality, clever engineering and steadfast reliability continued to grow, so did the little Honda's popularity, as sales figures that topped 200,000 annually attested.

Early models of the Civic were typically outfitted with a basic AM radio, rudimentary heater, foam cushioned plastic trim, two-speed wipers, and painted steel rims with a chromed wheel nut cap. The current Civic has become much more luxurious with satellite-linked navigation, a six-speed manual transmission, power locks and power windows available.

In the United States of America, the Civic is the second-longest continuously-running nameplate from a Japanese manufacturer; only the Toyota Corolla, introduced in 1968, has been in production longer.

A neatly chiseled exterior devoid of gimmickry, an intelligent interior design with supportive seats, large gauges and high-quality fit and finish made the 1984 Civic line attractive and an immediate success. In 1986 an Si version of the Civic hatchback was introduced, featuring a pop-up glass sunroof, body colored bumpers and sedan-style disk wheel covers. The seventh generation Civic arrived as a 2001 model and the Civic Si returned for 2002. The natural gas-powered Civic GX debuted in mid-2006 continues unchanged. The 2006 received the "Best Buy" award from Quatro Rodas magazine, the most prestigious car magazine in the country.

For the past seven years, the Honda Civic Tour has presented some of today's hottest music while also creating awareness of today's most pressing environmental concerns. With the transverse engine placement of its 1169 cc engine and front-wheel drive, like the British Mini, the car provided good interior space despite overall small dimensions. For the past three years the Honda Civic Tour has worked to promote environmental consciousness by giving away customized Honda Civic Hybrids to lucky fans.

This year's Honda Civic Tour is full of cool surprises for our fans. Recently, to add even more excitement to its environmental message, the Honda Civic Tour crafted an "Eco-village" as a test in Buffalo, NY, where concertgoers received a crash course in how to be a friend to Mother Nature. According to the EPA's 2005 Fuel Economy Guide, the Civic hybrid car is the leading, fuel-efficient compact car. The price for a new Civic isn't much higher than the price for a used one, and the cars will last a long time, and hold their value in the mean time.

I can't figure out if any of you are serious? Actually though, the 06-07 SI is a car I would own, although I no longer have anything with a Honda badge on it :(

That was the longest stream of ad posters I have ever seen. It's rediculous.
