Goodbye Civic Type R
The Civic Type R is soon to die, driven to an early grave by Euro V emission regs. Time for a protest...
Posted: 09 Dec 2010
As demonstrations go, this isn't quite the G20 protest.
Determined to voice our dissatisfaction at the demise of the Civic Type R, the TG Revolutionary Army has marched on Honda's Swindon factory. Unfortunately there are only five of us. Our sole weapons are a flimsy sign suspended on a few sticks - one of which snaps feebly in the first gust of wind - and a broken vuvuzela. And no one can remember the words to the long-winded though metrically precise chant devised in the pub yesterday.
