    Sometimes when browsing advert sites like Autotrader, pistonheads, ebay, classiccars etc I come across some interesting cars so thought I'd start a thread on it.

    Here's a peculiar one, its a 4th Generation Accord, but looks to be a US import, left hand drive with LX trim designation.

    ^ Came across that, it is a real bargain, look at the condition its in, practically new! If only I had the money and space to keep one, but not a massive fan of the beige!

    That 43k mile auto has been for sale on Classic Cars for months.

    Probably unfair, but makes me wonder what could be wrong with it...looks great in the photos though.

    @FirstHonda I wouldn't be surprised its because its an old car that isn't as desirable as some plus its a big heavy auto. Either that or there is something really wrong with it.

    I think as Harvey said, its an old car, its a grand which a lot of people would balk at, and outside enthusiast circles, not many would want to buy that. Theres a green coupe also thats been on sale for months if not years, I've seen it on here too.

    Indeed, such cars are very tempting...

    Don't get me wrong its a fine low miles example, and its looked after, and someone would buy it for that if they really wanted it, but just to compare I bought my own MY2000 Accord for sub 500 quid.

    TBH if I had storage I'd be a nightmare.

    I had 4 cars at one point, now down to two, but I will get something else at some point when I see something small, auto, and unusual.

    Would love that Accord, but just too big for my spare garage, unfortunately...

    At least you have a garage to spare, I can barely get in the allyway at the side of my house half the time as neighbours park down there, when they shouldnt.
    You're right though, if I had the space, I could easily fill up a yard/garage with unusual motors and scrap cars for spares.

    Looks otherwise like a good shell.

    "Bring the 90's swagger back" and "it has no ignition and must be hotwired to start" sum the above car up perfectly.

    I've always liked those CR-X's, what a pity to see one which has been butchered like that.
