New Wheels!

Post ImageSo yesterday I mentioned that I would have a fairly big announcement! Well, as it turns out, I am a little late, but here is the announcement all the same: I got a new car! Probably not such big news for you, but definitely big news for me. The car is for me, Kim, and Tom. In theory anyway – they need to take their driver training and get their licenses, and then I’ll consider handing over the keys once in a while πŸ˜‰ My Dad, Martin, will have more on that I’m sure.

The new car is a 2005 Honda Civic Reverb, which is a two-door coupe. It’s got a 1.8L engine with 115 horsepower, and it’s a five-speed manual. The Reverb package means that it has the Aero package (skirting and spoiler), a in-dash six CD changer, 15″ alloy wheels, and same colored mirrors and door handles. We also got the protection package which has a paint protector, undercoating, and scotch-guarding inside. You can see the full specs here.

Yes Megan, it has power locks. Dickson, it’s definitely not cute! I love driving a stick, so I’m very happy that it’s not an automatic. Some other cool things – the CD player plays MP3 CDs, and also has a audio jack for external devices, like my Zen Touch. The color is “Fiji Pearl Blue”, which is really nice. We definitely made a good choice on the color.

So that’s my announcement! Now I’ll always have a vehicle at my disposal, and Kim and Tom and I will have something to get around in for the next few years (thanks Mom & Dad). We took some pictures tonight, which you can see here. For now, time to sleep, if only so that I can get back to driving in the morning πŸ™‚

  4. i thought of something else. those tinted windows better be bulletproof, cause if they’re not you’re going to get shot if you come to my house…haha

    Thats what I would have bought if i was buying a Japanese car. But instead, I’m going to stay with my gas guzzling North American number until I have enough money to buy a Mazda RX-8.
