Honda S800

Late sixties sports car from Honda. After a few fixes, it became a better handling car and was apparently cheaper than comparable cars back in the day.

But is it cool?

No doubt some will be swayed by the 'oldies' image of Honda but I think that's a cool little car.

Roller bearing crank IIRC and revs to about 11 million. Cool if you're a pretty girl, not so much if you're a bloke. Probably just about makes it.

The boss's son at where I worked had one of those titchy things about the time I had my old 'E'?

Although I was complimentary to the lad to his face I did think ,'The only Birds I'd likely pull owning one of those wee Hondas would be Budgies or similar?'

Compare it with the contemporary small British sports cars & it's several generations ahead in engineering terms. Very much a car designed by motorcycle engineers - who else would think of using chain drive in the 1960s? Although they later changed to a rigid rear axle that was properly located - no leaf springs or swing axles here!

Cool just for the quirky engineering!

Noddy car, straight out of toy town!


The vehicles that men drive ought to be a bit more impressive, in your face, but watch your toes?
