A Honda in the Hills

We were able to leave our two year old daughter with my parents for the weekend so my wife and I took the opportunity to take my two-door Honda Civic Coupe away for an overnight stay at the Radisson Hotel at the Gold Coast. We cruised around Surfers Paradise, won a small fortune at Jupiters Casino, and took a drive up and thru Mount Tamborine.

It is not often I get to take my two-door Civic out like this these days coz we usually take the CR-V when we go out as a family, but since it was just my wife and I this weekend, we took the Civic for a romantic weekend getaway.

Didn't get too many worthy pics as it was raining on and off at the top of Mount Tamborine. As soon as we would stop to take photos, the rain would start again, forcing us to dash back to the car before we got soaked! In any case, the views at the top of the mountain were spectacular and the air so cool and crisp.

We had a great time to ourselves, but towards the end of the weekend we begun to miss our little girl so we went back to pick her up from her grandparents house.

Fooled me too, I would appreciate it if he did not use it. He can if he wants, it is just really misleading. I mean he is a new member and Gearbox is a priceless gem to the community.

Thanks, dude, yeah I'm quite fond of that picture myself. Not the best photographic quality however, but the angle of the car is just perfect.

The rims are Osaka RS5 racing wheels. Very lightweight.

I got them from Bob Jane T-Mart, which is an Australian franchise. No idea where you could find them in the US but I have seen a picture of the same wheels on a black Civic Coupe from the US. I suspect they are called something different though, however they look identical.

I tried searcing on "osaka rs5" and that came up with some hits.
