General It's Honda city here...!

    I foolishly once claimed on here that I saw far more Honda models in the North (Yorkshire and North West) than I did in the South.

    Well, I think either I am noticing far more now (likely I have to admit) or my local dealer is having a very good time indeed.

    Popped to Sainsbury's earlier, and in the small car park there were:

    - 1 x 8th Generation Accord tourer
    - 1 x 8th Generation Accord saloon (mine)
    - 1 x 7th Generation Acccord saloon
    - 1 x CR-V
    - 2 x Jazz
    - 1 x Civic

    Then to cap it off, I was let out into the traffic when I left between two Civics...:Thumbup:

    It's made me wonder what the collective noun should be for a group of Hondas?

    An engineering of Hondas perhaps? A VTEC of Hondas? Answers on a postcard...:Smile:

    I like a herd of Hondas.

    I've seen a massive surge in 7th Gens around these parts, there's about 4-5 I regularly seem to go past lately. Still haven't once seen an 8th Generation this end of Liverpool, even though I know of a few members with them in the area.

    Perhaps it should be a "cog" of 7th Generation Accords?

    Hah, a swamp of sevenths. I like the alliteration.

    I think yesterday was my record for Honda spotting...

    In a 40 mile round trip through Bucks and into Oxfordshire, I saw no fewer than SEVEN new CR-Vs, and three other 8th Generation Accords :Hooray: It was actually getting a bit weird, as there always seemed to be a CR-V behind me, in front of me, or coming towards me. Honda stalking?!

    Said it before, but round here the new CR-V has evidently been a real sales success - loads around.:Thumbup:

    You do see a lot of new CR-Vs, recently I've been noticing a lot if FRVs about too. No idea why they stop making that car, it seemed to have been doing well.

    I see a lot new CR-Vs here and have to say they are growing on me and am nearly 100% it will be my next car when time comes for Accord to retire.
    Kids getting bigger and need more back room space and Accord not really generous in that department.
    On the topic parked today in Morisons store and only noticed when i got out 6 Honda`s next to each other.My Accord,2 Jazz and 3 Civic`s.
