The former owner of the Mystery Car called.
I’d rattled off the car info I had, 1997 Honda Accord, when I spoke with her mom, who didn’t correct me.
The person who answered the phone at Burns Towing checked and said it was an Accord.
Pierce County Sheriff’s Dept. said it was registered as an Accord.
But you eagle-eyed, car-loving bloggers were right when you said it looked like a Civic. (I’m no good at telling cars apart, so I appreciated your input.)
The owner says it’s a Civic.
How did this happen? I’m guessing the error originated on the registration. The car was last bought used. That error would have stayed alive on its paper trail.
I’m going back to the posting and correcting the error now.
Thanks again, sharp-eyed readers!
