    Hi Folks,
    Here is my lovely 25k miles Accord :Smile:
    Amazingly it has a full Honda supplying dealer stamped up service history book - serviced on time not miles. The condition really shows the care and attention the owner gave to this super car. I feel very fortunate to own it.
    P1010094.
    P1010098.
    P1010101.
    P1010106.
    P1010119.

    Really love this vehicle, it's simply fabulous!
    Cheers, Giles

    Thanks folks :Smile:
    Zoran - I'm just down the road in Stratford. Do you have pictures of your Accord on here?
    I'm liking the sound of freebie window stickers!
    Cheers, Giles

    Hi Giles
    I don't have 1st Generation but have seen and had a ride in one of the oldest one in the country.
    I was thinking of buying one but due to lack of garage/space to keep it i didnt.

    Fantastic car, If I owned this car I don't think I would drive it, its a masterpiece by what I can see.When I bought mine back in 83 it was only 3 years old and already had some rust bubbles under the headlight panel and under the repeater lights ,this one is spotless, Just look at that engine bay crazy,

    Thanks for the compliments on my Accord - yes it's a beauty all right, I really do feel very proud to own such a fabulous mint car!

    Also thank you very much for my Accord Owners Club stickers :Smile: one for the modern and one for the classic - great stuff.

    Any classic Accord owners near me in Stratford Upon Avon?

    Cheers, Giles

    I only use mine in fair weather unless committed at a show. However I plan to have the Dinitrol redone and then maybe I will be a bit more adventurous! I have every faith that British salty winter roads will be damaging to our delicate 70's bodywork.

    Hi Giles,
    what's with the badge on the grille? Never seen one like that, did you get it like that or is that some local theme of yours?.
