Honda rolls out My Sick Civic

Taking a decade-old coupe and transforming it with a wild makeover, Bannister Honda and Morning Star are giving the Sick Civic away

Taking a decade-old coupe and transforming it with a wild makeover, Bannister Honda and The Morning Star are gearing up to give the Sick Civic away.

The 2003 Honda Civic Coupe has been in the shop since summer, getting tricked out with new tires and wheels, wicked paint and graphics, a new exhaust system and a thumping stereo.

With the final touches underway, the Civic will soon be rolling it out into the community for potential new owners to get a look at the My Sick Civic.

“They (Honda) have taken an older model civic and turned it into a hot little car,” said Ian Jensen, Morning Star publisher. “It’s going to be displayed all over the community, from here to Silver Star and everywhere in between.”

Then starting Jan. 12, watch The Morning Star for a series of questions which will qualify you to win the ride. From the entries, five finalists will be chosen and winner will be determined during Vernon Winter Carnival’s Family Day.

“We understand that purchasing a vehicle can be an expensive process, so this is simply our way of giving back to the community of Vernon the best way we know how,” said Pat Loehndorf, Bannister Honda’s general manager.

“It is also a way to showcase the talents of our local sponsors who have really ramped up the process for this build.”

Starting in January, the car will be at various high-traffic locations around town, including the Village Green Centre.

“The number one priority of the group is to ensure that the vehicle is safe on the road but that it is also something to be proud of,” said Loehndorf.
