Before the launch of the Civic in 1972, Honda was thinking of pulling out of car manufacturing altogether. The Civic was their first big hit on the auto market and kept Honda in the business of making cars. Good thing they kept selling cars, or else they would have missed out on 18.5 million Civics sold.
