    Unfortunately that "needs welding" disclaimer probably means there's some pretty bad undercarriage rot, that's unfortunately the big reason so few are left in existence.

    I'd love to see this go to someone who can give it the restoration and TLC it deserves.

    ^^I'd say they were forward thinking. Back in the day I remember that (generally) only big European cars came with an auto option. The Japanese offered the option on most elements of their ranges.

    We'll mainly be driving automatics in the next 20 years, like the United States IMHO...:Smile:

    Excellent news :Devil:

    Well I am getting my GP1 that a CVT so that my first taste of long term auto ownership. I wish they did a manual in the GP1 but they don't.

    yes you are right we all will have auto as standard soon, but I will still keep my beloved manual.

    Then time to change your garage accord to manual dude. It says 1st Generation is auto. mmm glitch.

    Quintet, yes. Basically the EL lump so someone get it and get a 5 speed shoved in it. Easy.

    Would like a Quinny but too 2nd Generation for me. Like my 60's and 70's Hondas so much more.

    Sorry if I'm asking a stupid question but I take it this is a 5 door Second Gen Accord or is it a bit different to the 2nd Generation but on the same platform?

    Its a mix and match venture with Rover. Accord chassis Prelude front end Civic interior and Accord/Prelude engine.

    Very odd car. Didn't sell well. It is a 1st Generation but 80's not 1st Generation 70's

    I'd have it though I'm waiting for another car currently.
