Why is everyone joking about Honda? Kanjo culture and the legendary Honda Civic

The idea for the video has been around for a long time. Once upon a time I also had a Honda Civic, after buying which, I began to often hear a joke about my orientation. And I wondered why Honda owners are called faggots. As it turned out, behind a simple insult lies an entire auto culture, the basis of which was the iconic Civic. The name is very simple – Kanjo. Grab tea, biscuits and enjoy watching. If you like the project, then you can support it: 5469 5500 6157 8438 Video text: Whether you know it or not, there is a joke among motorists for a long time. It concerns Honda owners and its meaning is very simple – if you have a Honda, then you are a faggot. And the amazing thing is that most people don’t even know where this joke came from and why having a cult car is like loving men. Abroad, Honda breeders are called Kanzhopidors. And to understand why, you need to go to Japan in the 80s. Kanjo or kanjo is a huge network of transport interchanges and rings, something like the Moscow Ring Road or Kada, but dozens of times larger. And in the 80s, night races between gangs began to be arranged at these interchanges. Their essence was very simple: 2 teams leave for the denouement and rush past other cars at high speeds. And it so happened that the Honda Civic was perfect for all requests. Since the release of the 3rd generation of the Civic, it is almost impossible to meet other cars on Kanjo. as soon as you can. Even if you find yourself driving a Honda with a 1.3 engine, it will pleasantly surprise you. () Its controllability is something. It’s like you are driving a kart, but only it has a glass roof and a stove. () What’s in his cabin is not at all interesting and you don’t need to know – here’s the steering wheel, gearbox and gas pedal, then you’ll figure it out yourself () Often the improvements were minimal, the rear seats were pulled out of the car and the frame was installed, and the standard suspension was changed to a screw, set slicks and racing car was ready. It was these cars that became the symbol of Kanjo culture – the roundabouts at the junctions of the city of Osaka. A reasonable question arises: if the cars are so good, then why did their owners begin to be called not the most affectionate word Kanjo Civic did not look like a serious racing car. The body always had laps, chips and scratches. If you open the hood of such a car, then it has never been clean there. There were oil smudges, and clamps, and traces of a collective farm, quick repair. As the Kanjo became more and more popular, racers in other cars wanted to compete with the Hondas. Let’s imagine a small situation: You are approaching a traffic light in a modern, fresh car. Perhaps you even have a racing Solaris or Rio. And an old Civic gets up next to you, and the guy behind the wheel offers you one race. Naturally, you are sure of your victory. Honda overtakes you and all that remains for you is to look at its rear lights, imagine how insulting it was when a powerful 5 liter American stood up against the Civic and the balance of power was sort of clear. But as soon as the green light turned on, the little rice cart was carried far ahead. If the straight line was very long, then somewhere far away the Mustang will catch up with the Civic, but in another situation it has no chance. And it was from then on that Kanjo riders began to be called kanjopidors out of resentment. They could not catch up with them, but somehow it was necessary to justify themselves. Unfortunately, today we have a huge problem finding a live Civic. Most likely it will be a rattling bucket with a dead suspension. The interior will be shabby, and of course the previous owner will say that you just need to put your hands on it a little. Also, time has not spared this car, so the body will also be in a very deplorable state. Rotted sills, arches in beetles and possibly a very tired bottom – that’s what you get for 100 thousand. If you want to find a really worthwhile copy – 200, and even more expensive on the vtech. With modern Civics, too, everything is not so fun. The once crazy car was domesticated and made more ordinary. It can and will be faster than the old Type R, but it doesn’t look like that anymore, and it won’t give you those emotions. Golf GTAI today looks much more interesting than a regular Civic. If you have never had a Civic, then you may not even understand what I was talking about. And I strongly advise you to ride this car. No matter how they joke about Honda, the Civic is legendary and iconic in a car that deserves a completely different nickname. And it was all chatted – Lenich Filippov honda civic

  1. У меня 3 сивик японец с правым рулем и коробкой хондаматик . Похер что жесткая подвеска ,похер что нет усилителя руля и сломан кондиционер , 114 л.с. при массе кузова всего 730 кг и невероятная управляемость и маневренность на поворотах покрывает все ее недостатки .А еще она маленькая и в городе проблем с парковкой нет никогда

  5. Езжу на хондах не первый год, все отлично. Главное не покупать авто после распиздяев, восстанавливать подвеску на качественных запчастях дороговато. Была Интегра DB, Civic EK3 RS и сейчас Accord 6 SIR-T. HONDA TOP
