    Accord magazine 2. Accord magazine 1. Accord magazine 3. It's good that the gen 1 has got some much needed attention in this magazine. the previous owner was the one who got it in the mag, though it was mine when the mag came out. Enjoy these pics

    yes about time the accord got recondition , very much overlooked car with the motoring journals , good on practical classics for its unbiased description of the car , though missed a few pointers , car of the year 1979 with autotest 4 year comprehensive road test , and the guardian, top ten all time cars in track and road magazine, its services reminder on the dash ,
    standard luxury ex models with chunky chrome electric windows / vinyl moon roof , and direct fluid to power steering rack offering a unique steering feel, ,
    say the accord was more related to Mercedes than than any of the popluar British models !

    Its always been ahead of its time, compare it to a Ford Capri the electronic were far superior to it not mention the craftsmanship was superior to the German built Ford.

    Good to hear the market prices of a 1979 car mines a 77 :Happy:

    the previous owner of my 1st Generation accord part exchanged his ford capri for the accord as wanted a new puncher 5 speed gearbox option for towing on holidays

    Ever since you posted your 1st Generation Accord in the garage I have been looking for photos of our old Toyota Cressida, which I commented on at the time as being rather similar. Just found these.
