  1. SI an old Geeezer car

    That is awesome sir. Sounds like you need to join some of us at parking lot autocrosses and see how that thing really handles. I'm 78, and have been an enthusiast since early teens. I was into drag racing for years with big V8s, but got into SCCA Autocrossing at age 43 and have not looked back...

    ANYTHING would look better without the camouflage...
  7. No, your 1.5L engine is not going to break

    Very well written piece by the OP...pretty much on point with the entire piece... Kudos sir...
  8. What do you think the Type R is missing?

    I don't know about you, or what you consider driving hard in the mountains, but I simply would not do it on all season tires if you are an aggressive driver in that environment. But we all have our own thing, so this is not intended to criticize...have fun with your Type R, that is what it is...
  9. What do you think the Type R is missing?

    It would be perfect if it were available in a coupe...hatchback coupe preferred
  10. Shifting into 2nd

    It sounds to me like you may have a worn or sloppy motor or transmission mount.
  11. Do you ever get creeped out by the attention?

    Hey, I drive a 4x4 Laramie Ram diesel...nice truck...I also drive a Honda Civic Si...I admire all cars that catch my eye, regardless of brand...:drive::thumbsup: That said, Try being a geezer driving your 2019 white pearl Si Coupe, with a Tire Rack sticker across the upper front windshield, and...
  12. how do you know how fast you can take a turn?

    Yep, that's another one, but you have to learn brake/acceleration modulation to properly execute. The first thing is getting students to get on the brakes and slow down before entering a turn. With experience, they may not even have to brake, just a lift to slow entry, transfer weight to the...
  13. how do you know how fast you can take a turn?

    The fastest way through most turns or curves is to slow down...In autocross, we have a saying..."slow down to go fast." Your tires are the limiting factor, but it takes some degree of experience to realize when you have reached that limit. There is a big difference in tire screech and tire...
  14. SI an old Geeezer car

    Indeed...the one and only...the one I sold him was red. I think the white one was one of his championship cars. The one I sold him ended up with an SRT 4 drive train...he called me a few years ago and asked if I would be interested in buying it back after the swap, but I had already moved back...
  15. Stopping at stop sign

    The OP is lucky he doesn't have a wall full of tickets for rolling through stop signs. Personally, and I have been driving stick shift my entire driving life, I begin shifting down to 3rd, release clutch for engine braking, then shift to second, slowing from engine braking even more, and may...
  16. No street racing for me

    I'm 76, born in 1943...Street racing was a thing long before I was born...Take up Autocrossing and find a club in your area...you learn vehicle dynamics and car control, and much more fun than drag racing. Honda Civics fare very well in their respective autocross classing in SCCA. Most clubs not...
  17. SI an old Geeezer car

    That sucks, but hopefully you are only a couple years from retiring and things can change. I too had an ACR, 3 of them in fact, and the first two new, one sedan single cam, zero option car, and one couple twin cam car that eve had air. I bought one used in 2007 and redone it, engine, trans, etc...
  18. SI an old Geeezer car

    Interesting thread...one that I personally can identify with. I'm 76.5 years old and have owned mostly performance cars most of my adult life, from a 63 Plymouth Savoy SS Max Wedge making 425 hp to a new C 6 Corvette Z 51 pkg car, and many in between. I bought my 2019 Si coupe in late December...
  19. Getting pulled over?

    I was a cop for a long time, almost 30 years total. The judges in most counties would laugh an officer out of court for bringing a 5 mph over ticket...unless there were extenuating circumstances such as cutting in and out of traffic, school zone, or extremely slick roadways...
