@Doghouse Riley So from your photo I notice it's a 2nd-gen 2002-2006 CR-V, right-hand drive... 😁

It's 2005, had it from new, not done 60,000 miles yet. traded in one we bought in 1998 one for it . When we bought that, if you saw another on the road, "everybody waved," they were so rare. They're "bullet proof." Now they're everywhere!

I had that in '97 with my first one. The first one I saw in the US was a year before it was released here, a '96 JDM (Japan) version, right-hand drive, with a manufacturer plate on it. The '97 had a 12 week waiting list in our area, but I found one about three hours away in Cleveland, and drove it home a few days later. And yes, back then, everyone was wondering what it was. 290,000 miles on it before I retired it for El Borrego, who is at home in his element here, somewhere along Potash Rd. near the Colorado River in Utah. We made it without the benefit of low gearing or a lift kit. 😁

Our first one was "Brucie" as it was "Spruce Green," That was made in Japan. We had to wait three months for it.

I'd just retired in Febtuary 98 and we were in the Honda showrooms as I wanted to buy a Prelude. But my wife has MS and found it very difficult to get into the showroom model. "But I could get in that" she said, indicating the CRV behind it. First time I'd seen one. The seats were at "bum height" she said so she had no difficulty getting in it. I took it for a test drive and was sold.

It replaced "Gloria" a red Civic Lsi. We called her that as the first letters of the registration were GLO and it seemed apt. First time we'd given a car a name.

The present one is just "Rhonda the Honda." Everything still works and there's no rust. Just servicing and tyres for the most part, but last year I had new front pads and this year rear pads and discs. But apart from that it's fine. Starts first time every time. I'm down to 3000 miles a year now , so no point changing it, as I'm now eighty. It gets me to and from my golf club three times a week (when we're allowed to play) and for shopping and visiting friends.

"Brucie" got a raw deal, he was stuck on the front of the Honda dealer's lot for several weeks after we traded him in. It was on the main road into Manchester. We used to see him every week as we went past when we drove in there shopping. Then suddenly, one week he was gone!

Over the years I "checked on him." now and again, just out of curiosity.
Here in the UK you can imput a registration into the DVLA's web site and it will tell you what state the car is in, by reading the annual MOTs reports which will list the faults found on test and if it has a current MOT certificate.
It's really for prospective buyers to check out second hand card they might want to buy. All was well until 2018, when he failed on...well....everything.. and there was a lot of rust. so I guess he was scrapped. Someone just didn't bother to take enough care of him. The milage was very high for a UK car. So I guess, driven into the ground.

In today's Department of Overkill, I bring you a photo from last year in January:

View attachment 33421

There is actually a sixth sign a little further back, before these.

40-45 is about as fast as this ramp can be taken. I've hit it at 50-55 and let's just say it was a sphincter moment...

It always amazes me 1) how fast it flows through this stretch and 2) how blue the water is. Ideally I need to Photoshop this photo, to get rid of the trash can and the small dark patch in the upper right corner (which is the screening behind the rearview mirror).

I have a story from years ago about walleye fishing on the river with a couple friends in a little 16 foot fishing boat. The boat owner should have checked his little gas tank before we got on the river. Ran out of gas and it took all 2 of us had on the oars just to stay stationary on the river. Finally made it over by the little cut in the break wall by the water treatment plant that allowed us a break from the current. Flagged down a larger boat that gave us a tow back up river. But wait, there’s more. The rope our “captain” threw to our rescuers was rotted, so it snapped. Not once, but twice. And so we started drifting downstream again with a freighter now in view coming up the river. The third time our rescuers circled around, they threw us their rope and we made it to shore. I never went fishing with that particular friend again.

How to confuse a millennial--stick this in front of them and tell them to make a call.
Had that happen! A neighbor came over saying her cellphone was dead and she needed to make a call. I pointed her to that and she was :wtf:WTF is that!?!
