ORIGINAL DEFINITION: A car, made by the Honda Motor Corporation, meant originally to be a reliable, basic, economical form of transportation. But that's where the good part ends. Because the current true definition of CIVIC is as follows...


A car which started its life with the above definition but in 99.999 percent of the cases, is now:

1) A still small, gay, ricemobile, featured in the movie The Fast And The Flimsy
2) A $2000-$8000 car with $1000-$15000 in modifications, the dollar amount spent being inversely proportionate with the owner's iq
3) A car that, no matter how many mods are done to it, is still small, gay, flimsy, and rice
4) A car that needs a huge amount of money added to it, in order to keep up with stock sports cars of any brand or year, which are usually oblivious to the fact that they're even being raced by this unworthy opponent, which brings me to the next sub-entry in the definition, which is:
5) A car famous for the RICER FLYBY, which happens when a totally unaware motorist who is driving a car with a real engine, which intimidates the hyper ricer in the CIVIC, inspiring him to show his mania, and, while the real-car driver is at 1/4 throttle just minding his own business and switching radio stations, he gets passed by a BUZZ BOMB CIVIC doing 60 in a 25 zone, 12 blocks after the stop light that this event started at, and the CIVIC driver flashes his lights as if he just 'MADE THE KILL'.
6) A car most often owned by hyper people with small brains and even smaller penises, as evidenced by their 'OH YEAH WELL WATCH THIS' attitude
7) A car that, when spelled backwards, spells the same word. This was intelligent design on the part of Honda since they knew they were appealing to a dyslexic crowd of morons
8) A front wheel drive car with a small engine, that, when modified properly, can consistently produce enough power to shred its transmission, which is extremely useful at the track, and apparently must improve 1/4 mile times, and be the ultimate goal for civic modders.
9) A car, unmistakably in sound (THE WEED WACKER IS FOLLOWING ME), and appearance, with any number of gay neon lights, carbon fiber door handles, rims that look like they belong on an suv, a spoiler that was taken off an old 747 Boeing, and 4 different colors of primer
holy shit man i paid $4500 for the car and spent $18,000 on mods for my civic, and i'm only on my 3rd $2000 tranny, so that's....let's see....$28,500 plus it still needs a paint job...shoulda bought a new WRX, or a Camaro or Mustang or a used 335i, or used the money on therapy

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.

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

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.

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 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?

a not-so-cheap car anymore
upping the price so all the little rich kids get them,
and look like hot shit. new models (2007+) are looking a lot better,
compared to the piece of ass they used to have.
finally they arent getting the reputation for being the shit whole they used to be.
yo my new civic is for once classy! who would of thunk it!?
