Junkyard Gem: 1978 Honda Civic

The first-generation Honda Civic changed the subcompact rules in North America, and by the late 1970s Honda had customers sitting on waiting lists and paying way over MSRP to buy one.

Here’s a matchbook from a restaurant that burned down in the late 1980s, located at an airport that was replaced by Global Conspiracy Shadow Government Headquarters in 1995.
