1) An economy car driven by lower middle class workers. Mediocre milage, and overall unreliable.

2) A rice burner that usually boasts a huge three foot spoiler or 747 wing, ridiculous stickers and trims, and an ugly neon paint job. The owners, usually teenagers who bought it by sacrificing the money in their college savings, are completely oblivious to the fact that their 4 cylinder front wheel drive car couldn't even compete with a Mack truck going uphill.
1) "I think I'll take my Honda civic to work and hope to God that I don't run out of gas."

2) My 8 cylinder Lexus usually proves to be more than a match against these ricers with their civics in a drag race.

The best car in the world. (I'm a Toyota man myself)
Yo, I was rollin down the strip just hollerin at some bitches. my honda was bouncin I cut the springs 3 inches. My neons are flashing with the beat of my bass
Just another Friday night and my Civics ready to race
I got mad props for days from all the races that I’m winning
And when I’m stopped at a redlight my hubcaps keep spinning
My Seat is layed back got my hat cocked to the side
My skin may be white but I claim asian pride
My FWD is just burning up the streets
While I got your head bobbin to this cold ass beat
Tearing down you block with my crazy ass drivin’
I’m ripping through your town like hurricane Ivan
Got the music blaring from my audiovox speakers
The crowd parts in half when I hit the strobes in my blinkers
People gather around looking kinda curious
They all wanted to know if I’m in the Fast and the Furious.
I got out of my car with my pants just saggin
Then popped open my hood so I could start bragging
Chrome exhaust tip with built in LED lights
Custom cold air intake made from PVC pipe
2 Jensen subs in the trunk that are bangin’ hard
Grill from Home Depot made from Gutter Guard
Reving up my exhaust at everything I drive by
Saw a Camero in the slow lane and gave him a ricer fly by
I got your mirrors vibrating from the bass of my subs
I told my momma for Crimus I want the Giovanni Dubs
I got Japanese symbols on the back of my car
If you could read Japanese it would say Type R
I got a carbon fiber wing that stands 3 ft high
It it was any bigger I’d be flyin’ in the sky
Fools driving driving domestics know that imports are superior
I got 15 horsepower just by painting my interior
I got more horsepower than the phonebooks got pages
And my speedometer reads 140 on my indiglo gauges
I got purple neons underneath that keep the ground lit
3 more paychecks and I’ll have my body kit
Got decals on the side of all the sponsors I wanna get
And they’ll all coming crawling cause this songs about to hit
I gotta get my Civic ready for the road to Nopi
When the judges see my car I’ll get the first place trophy
I’ll smoke any car at Hot Import Nights
The only thing you will see is my altezza taillights
Cause everybody knows Hondas are the fastest car yet

a highly tunable sports car.
it is so tunable in fact, it can be made to go faster just by slapping a sticker on the side, or putting a comicly oversised novelty spoiler on the back. can be known to reach speeds of a whopping 151 mph
some people are even know to drop massive V6's into them, and also putting a vary large tail pipe adds 5-10 hp.
ha ha you suck, i put $50,000 into this $8,000 car so i could bead out your stock camaro, hahaha.

a reliable cheap car that actually gets you from point A to point B looks good stock and is not a bad car at all but for some reason idiots think its a race car and put huge spoilers ridiculous exhaust mods and funky stickers that could read "i fuck goats when im not fucking my mom" for all they care!
girl:call the national guard were under attack again i just saw a jet heading towards a building!

guy:relax its just a riced civic!

girl:really? thats a car? how ridiculous!

guy:that poor car what did it ever do?

An econobox, NOT a race car. It will always be an economy car, no matter how loud your exhaust is, or how big your spoiler is, or how many stickers you plaster to the side of it.
Person 1: Dude, you just got your ass beat in a drag race by a fuckin' Hummer!

Person 2: It's not my fault... I'm driving a Civic

"I could out-race a Civic in my 1994 Cavalier four-banger, even if I were towing my mom's 1990 Buick Century wagon behind it."

A car made by Honda that is meant for AUTOCROSS, not drag racing.
Only the stupid ricer idiots would take this thing to the drag strip against a couple of F-body's where they know they would get smoked. Now in an autocross event is where the Civic really shines in performance, handling, etc. Sure, american muscle is fast, but what is speed without any control of it? Nothing. Too much horsepower and you're gonna end up having a nasty crash. So, here is the conclusion of the everlasting fight between imports and muscle cars...

Muscle- These cars are meant for drag racing, where their high levels of horsepower and torque can really be used to their full potential.

Import- These are meant for autocross and circuit type events on different weather and surface conditions, where superb handling and an all around balance of performance aspects are needed.

An econobox car that is meant primarily for older women to go out and get their groceries. However this car is often times seen being sported by younger men with a gay exhaust tip, gay paint job, and oh yes even the gay underglow lights. You will also often times see the hood painted black to try and look "JDM" or like carbon fiber. Unfortunetly 99% of the time when these cars are modded they sound like pissed of weed whackers and nothing more. Though there are some fast Civics they are few and hard to find.
Wow that Honda just passed me.. Oh wait my car isn't on.
