The Honda Civic Si, one of Japan's many automobile icons. Now in its 8th generation now, the car is still popular as ever if not more. This line of cars under the Honda badge has served as a race car, a rally car, making it into a popular drift cartoon and simply a family car ferrying people from point A to point B. Hot Wheels made this new casting to replace the older Honda Civic Si casting from 2001.
I have completed my First Editions of Honda Civic by Hot Wheels nearly a year ago, together with the three All Star recolours in 2008. This casting has also been customized by me twice already, another testament to its popularity. Ironically, it was this casting that got me started in customizing 1/64 cars.
We all know that there is a SEMA version of the green FE Civic. Since I couldn't afford nor find one off the racks, I decided to make my own, spraying the hood and bonnet flat black.
Now that the Honda Civic Si has evolved from this model, perhaps Hot Wheels should follow Matchbox or Tomica and update its Civic too?
