America’s largest selling 2nd car (on two wheels)
If you see more and more sporty red Hondas these days, don’t be surprised. Not that Honda owners don’t have a car. It’s just that they’ve been spoiled. Running errands on a Honda is more fun. And you save a lot of money. Take the price, for instance: $245 (plus a modest set-up charge). Could anything be lower? Look what you’ve got going for you in a Honda. A 4-stroke 50cc OHV engine that conjures up to 225 miler to a gallon of gas. At 45 mph you hardly know the motor’s there. Even a double load can’t ruffle it. Other things count, too: 3-speed transmission, automatic clutch, dual cam-type brakes on both wheels, even as optional push-button starter for the ultimate in ease. But the biggest thing is the sheer fun od owning a Honda. And meeting the nicest people. How about making tour 2nd car a Honda? You;ll have lots of company.
