When the sun is shining, a convertible is one of life's more delicious automotive pleasures. In the dead of winter, on the other hand, even a well-lined convertible can seem damp and cold. One compromise for this classic ragtop dilemma is the del Sol, Honda's entertaining little shoe box without a lid. With its removable targa roof panel, it supplies plenty of open-air motoring, with a substantial weatherproof environment for off-season cruising. Available in performance levels ranging from good to gee-whiz, the del Sol offers relatively inexpensive fun in a Honda package. Honda originally called this car the Civic del Sol because it shares a number of components with the popular Civic family. However, for 1995, it's simply the del Sol, as Honda attempts to give this car a separate image.
