    Default A 93 Honda Civic - WTF?!!

    GREENVILLE, N.Y. ? State police have ticketed an upstate New York man for driving more than twice the 65-mph speed limit on an interstate highway. Troopers said a 21-year-old man was clocked doing 137 mph on Interstate 84 in Orange County on Tuesday. He was pulled over in the westbound lanes near Exit 2 in the town of Greenville, on the New Jersey border 60 miles northwest of New York City.

    Troopers said the man was driving a 1993 Honda Civic.

    I suspect the Honda was not stock.

    Street racers like to juice up the Honda Civic. I'm not quite sure why, maybe because they are cheap to start with, a/k/a The Fast and the Furious Tokto Drift / Vin Diesel.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    If it had the v-tech engine that was chipped to up the rpms and an after market airbox and exhaust, it could definitely reach those speeds. I'm just not sure how stable it would be. I've had my 2002 civic up over 100 and it was more than just a little twitchy.

    i almost lost control of a honda civic when i was 16, i just broke the 100 mph barrier for the first time driving solo on a country road and hit a patch of leaves! a little slip slidin and the front wheel drive grabbed the road nicely. i never hit the brake, just let off the gas and was able to regain control. i'm glad i rode motorcycles and snowmobiles before i drove a car. it gave me the experience to handle a delicate situation that could have been roll over fatality city right there.
    but then again, i may be retarded
