Soichiro Honda's fuel of choice in his youth was high-test sake. He marked his wedding by dancing naked, raced through a life-threatening crash and drove a car filled with geishas off a bridge. (Everyone lived.) Then he founded Honda and found his greatest success breaking convention.
Unsurprisingly, the 2012 Honda Civic looks exactly as uninspiring as the Honda Civic Concept that debuted in Detroit. The look's an update on the slab-sided current generation, but not so radical an upgrade as to disquiet their easily perturbed buyers.
Honda revealed two concepts pointing to the ninth-generation, 2012 Civic. Honda wants us to know the prototype Civic Coupe and sedan will entice the "young at heart," further highlighting some tension in being the "VTEC just kicked in, yo" company.

U-Haul's are designed for furniture and junk. They're not designed to transport Honda Civics. That didn't stop these brain surgeons from setting up a ramp and trying to make it happen. NSFW language.
