Hey...now! Don't pick on Honda Civics! The Toyota Camry is supposed to be the car of derision.
Take it easy - I was just referring to the base model Civic. Not the high end Civic XR4Ti model like yours.

This just in - found a rare video clip of Billy, DTM and gnat loading Billy's Civic up to head out for a track day:
Yeah, well at least we didn't turn it over...yet!

Update on the water pump - the pump was gone when I got to the shop for the coolant top up. But all seems good now, so will keep driving and fixing other stuff. Next project is to get my convertible top back in alignment.
Ugh...

There will always be something else that needs to be done. It's the nature of the beast. Kind of like being perpetually stuck in an escape room - you're always trying to figure out the solution to a problem. But, where would the fun be if it was like a Honda Civic and never needed anything, right?
Very true. I bought this car knowing that it needed a few things that I could do, and had sat for a while and would probably need some catch-up maintenance. Tomorrow will install my new (used) roll bar cover that I got from DC Auto fixing a very ugly cosmetic issue. The top is another issue - probably well beyond my abilities, and the good convertible top guy in town can’t get to it until September. Will see if someone else can look at it - may need new cables, not sure. Like you said, always something but really enjoy the car.
