In my area, everyone drives Civics. I have a coworker lady, she's 63 years old, and she drives a 2006 Civic Si. She got pulled over by a cop for no reason, not for speeding, and the cop asked her if it was her car. She had to pull out papers to prove it was registered to her. A Civic is definately not a cool car in my area, I swear, every single street and avenue has at least one 8th gen. civic.
While 8th Gen Civics are not a dime a dozen here, they are fairly common. Si's however are another thing. Since the 8th Gen Si came out for the '06 model, I have scarcely seen any FG2's or FA5's on the road. In dealership lots, yes, but on the street, no.
I must say that 8th gen. Civic Si's aren't too common here. But I discovered that Civic hybrids are common for taxis and people who live in the, ironically, posh side of town. What I don't understand is that I rarely see regular 8th non-Hybird 8th gen Civics in the posh side of town. It's like these people are trying to make a statement like I'm rich and environmental.
