    I must be going ga ga cos just didn't recognise it. Must have been crying out for a v6 as you can see its big compared with the corsa behind. Thanks to all.

    It's a Prelude that's had a really bad paint repair to the O/S quarter panel.

    Can we ban stuscrv admin? :Laughing: Anyone on a Honda forum who can't identify a Prelude must be banned! :sparta::whip:

    A V6 on the Prelude would ruin them, they are fairly heavy for a sportcar as it is, although they handle superbly, a V6 would make them front end heavy and upset the balance of the car, remember these are FWD too and not RWD. Screaming 4 pot is perfect for them which is why they also came with the H22.

    And I was only drinking coffee honest ! Paint looked good for here ! I recon its just a shadow as was midday. But possibly the heat got to me.

    you'll have to ban me too, still looks like a Legend Coupe to me :Ohdear:
    having said that, anything of that shape at a distance in the early 90's looked like something from Rover :lol:

    I agree but not in all cases. Like when rover put the v8 in, it weighed same as the cast iron 4 pot.
    I know nothing about this model though I was thinking it was a re-badged rover. It could have a heavy old fashioned 4 and a Honda v6 wouldn't weigh much more.

    Jim, I actually thought you were being sarcastic with calling it a Legend.

    As for 90's Honda's looking like Rover? :Rant::Rant::disagree::disagree::disagree::tut::annoyed::Angry::telloff::Rant:
