look up any word, like daquan:
n. a small, cheap, economical means of transportation that, through an interesting twist of fate, has become incredibly popular with young people attempting to satisfy their youthful lust for speed. however, 9 times out of ten, the civic remains a small, cheap, economical means of transportation, except with approximately 30 thousand dollars worth of unusually shaped body pieces and enough performance equipment to keep up with actual sports cars (see camaro,trans am,mustang,m3,rx7,wrx, etc.

A Japanese car produced by Honda.
Known well for having the B16a engine in its production range which puts it in the league of "Hot Hatches"
The performance versions use VTEC which produces a power surge, similar to a turbo, which is unusual in N/A cars.

Because of this many people do not realise how quick the car is and as you can see many people resent it - just look at the jealous definitions!

However in the US it is true that many Ricers get hold of them!
damn that civic is quick! i want to get me a vtec!

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.

What muscle car fanboys always compare their cars to, or assume is the only Japanese car ever made, despite the existence of other Japanese cars that are much more suited for racing.

That aside, a Civic is an economy car that yields good gas mileage (around 40 mpg). Unfortuantely, there are a handful of young reckless drivers out there who take their Civics and rice them out (read: rape them), giving Civics and their owners a bad name.

Japanese economy car commonly owned by little wigger biotches who think they are so cool. Usually sporting a 20-inch fart pipe and sometimes body kits and spoilers. To this date I have never seen a real one with an aftermarket engine part (besides maybe spark plugs and an oil change)
