I really wanted a 6/7th gen Accord, but with the auto trannys being ticking time bombs it drives the price of the manuals up, especially if I went with the V6 coupe. Then with stuff like the Prelude/Integra the prices are absurd even with the rear quarters being composed of nothing but rust. Even the 98-00 Si have been ridiculous despite barely being any better than the EX I have. I jumped so hard on this EL when I saw it listed under $2k with a brand new set of all weathers and a pretty much immaculate interior.If someone hadn't drove into my 97 Del Sol VTEC I'd still be driving it.
Heck as soon as I'm done with this job, I'm selling the RDX and will probably just by a used 3rd gen Prelude or an Accord.
It's too bad Honda decided to turn into the new Toyota in the mid 00s. Civics turned into land yachts compared to the older gens and they haven't had a fun 'sporty' car since the S2K, the new Civic SIRs are just so.... generic.
