Bluey’s Last Mile

Few cars get the eulogy they deserve after a life of serving us.

But one 1982 Honda Civic was put to rest last week in Inwood, NY, and got a junkyard sendoff worthy of a lifelong friend.

Riddled with rust, the battered and buckled Honda made its way in a New Orleans-style funeral under its own power along Seaman Avenue near 207th Street, where the car had called home for 30 years. Known as “Bluey” for its once sky blue exterior, the car’s owner, Harry Ettling, said he was scrapping Bluey out of fear his feet would push through the floor. Of course, from the looks of it, you could push a finger through any of its quarter panels as well.
