The only Japanese car I owned in real life was a Honda Civic, unfortunately I fell asleep driving it on the M1 and met the safety barrier on the central reservation. I was unhurt but the car had to be written off. I would love another Honda.
I have five diecast Hondas. Here are three: a Hot Wheels S2000, Matchbox Civic and Hot Wheels Acura NSX.
In the 1969 Matchbox Catalogue, the only Japanese vehicle was a Honda Motorcycle.
I had it as a child, but have none of my childhood collection now.
Hot Wheels and Realtoy both make a model of the S2000, I prefer the Hot Wheels version.
My fifth and final Honda is a Kinsmart Integra in 1/34 scale.
In Hot Wheels 2014 listings, there is a Honda Civic EF, which is high on my wants list alongside a Datsun ’73 Skyline. If I find it I promise not to crash it!
Found it! In a three pack with two cars I wasn’t too keen on….
Now I have three colour variants of the Honda Civic EF and three variants of the Acura NSX.
