    Honda is restoring the first Honda automobile in the USA. No surprise that it s a N600 form 1967. There is as whole website that you can visit to keep yourself updated on the restoration.



    N600 HISTORY

    In 1969, Honda embarked on a new mission, to change the public’s perception of cars. At the time, most automobiles had high emissions and were far from fuel-efficient. Enter the Honda N600. It was roughly 3 feet shorter than most vehicles on the road in America at that time and weighed nearly half of what that year’s best-selling car weighed. It was simple, masterfully designed and truly ahead of its time. Little did the public know that this little Honda N600 was only the beginning.

    I always get shivers down my spine when things like this come to light
    It is the fact that in the here and now we have something from the there and then - History brought to life
    The older I get the more I appreciate and understand - perhaps because I am reminded every now and then seeing parts of my life as history now
    Made my day a little brighter

    Great find @legend-ary
