Pick of the Day is a Targa-topped, 2-seat Honda
The Pick of the Day is both a future classic and a car that can get you into RADwood events. It’s a 1995 Honda Civic Del Sol offered on ClassicCars.com by a private owner who once took it on that Margaritaville tour and suggests the next owner do the same.
“Several years ago, I drove it across country from Boise, ID to Key West, FL,” the owner reports. “I call it my Margaritaville tour, as I was following the route of Tully Mars, the main character in a novel written by Jimmy Buffett.
“The route took me through Sun Valley, ID, where Ernest Hemingway worked on his novels in a room in the Sun Valley Lodge. From there, through Yellowstone National Park, where the gorgeous views were spectacular to see, especially with the top down.
“Following roads East to Hannibal, MO, where I saw the cave where Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn hung out. From there I turned South, driving to Memphis, TN where I visited Elvis’ Graceland. Then down the Natchez Trace Parkway to New Orleans.
“Oh, what fun I had touring around New Orleans, seeing all the old mansions and sampling the cuisine. I followed the gulf, driving through all the funky gulf towns and enjoying the top down weather all the way to Key West, FL, where kids on mopeds sped around town and the bars were laid-back.
“Each place I went, people commented on what a beautiful well-maintained car my Del Sol is. Other Del Sol owners struck up conversations about where I had gone and my experiences in my Del Sol.”
The seller says the car is the top version of the Targa-roofed Del Sol with VTEC engine, rear spoiler, cruise control, disc brakes with ABS and dual airbags.
“This one is a beauty, has been lovingly maintained and garaged when not being driven. But it is such fun to drive!”
The car is painted dark green with black cloth interior. The car has power steering, brakes, locks and windows, and AM/FM radio with cassette player.
The 16-valve, aluminum alloy, fuel-injected, 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine was rated at 160 horsepower when the car was produced. It is linked to a manual transmission.
The seller is asking $10,000 for the car located in Boise, Idaho. To view this listing on ClassicCars.com, see Pick of the Day.
