My first car was 1982 Honda Civic 1500 DX three-door hatchback. Color options were limited to brown, beige and silver. It was an honest car with an honest five-speed transmission. I wish I still had it. Honda Civic’s hatchback offerings in North America have dried up since then — the last one being the Civic Si sold in the first half of the 2000s — but current rumors suggest the Civic hatchback could return in the form of the European market Civic built at the Honda plant in Swindon, England.
