I have always wanted one of those Hondas......

I needed a second car at the time, and this one was offered in the
classifieds.  I bought it in 1975, and it had about 40,000 miles on it.
I kept it for 2 years, at which time, I believe it was just about
clapped out.  It was leaking oil into the passenger compartment from
someplace up front.  It was responsible for my purchase of a set of
metric socket wrenches and a 6" extender--I needed it to occasionally
tighten up the starter, as it would work loose.  It blew an exhaust
valve, and I had a 1-cylinder car for a while--it had no acceleration at
all, but even on 1 lung, I could redline it in all 4 gears.

I believe it was junked when I traded it in, in 1977.

I remember seeing two other 600 Coupes in the area with some regularity.
One was pristine, owned by a fellow worker who had bought it new, and
the other had been customized--great big fender flares on the rear, and
what looked like 15" rims with drag slicks ON THE REAR.  It had about a
15 degree down slant from rear to front.  Quite stylish, I guess.  It
still had that little air-cooled two cylinder engine driving the front
wheels, of course.

Have you ever owned or maintained a car before?

How long do you think storage batteries typically, or "ought to", last?

 You got ripped off.
the battery costs $37.50 and iseasily installed in about a half hour.
These batteriestypically last 4 years and can cause all kinds of weird
symptoms when they begin to  go bad.

The only thing worse for you would be to have Michelle Steiner as the
seervice manager.  She ferits this newssgroupand is quite the arrogant bozo!

It would be worse for him to listen to anything you say, asshole.  Go
fuck yourself.

Donate to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society; help send Michelle to the marathon.
