Hey congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the forums. What colour did you get ??
The black on black is definitely how I'd like to spec out mine. It really doesn't get better than that. But I can only imagine how hot it must get there :|I got black on black. I think the black looks really good on the Civic but the car gets hot when parked in the Hawaiian sun. I sold the 73 Civic in 75 and bought a 74 Corolla wagon which I needed for my growing family. I did see the Civic about 3 years later and talked to the then 3rd owner. I could tell it was my old car because I painted it baby blue acrylic enamel with catalyst before I sold it. I would be very surprised if it was still running. It was a good car for the time because of the opec oil embargo at the time and the long gas lines. I guess I am showing my age so I;ll stop here. Aloha, Wayd.
35 mpg is really good. I been getting 29-31I have the sedan. While I got a consistent 29 - 31 mpg with the 05, I am getting 35 mpg with much more power and torque, better handling and a much better driving experience. Ditto on the Celica - don't see any around anymore. Aloha, Wayd.
