    looks amazing from the picture , barely any rust on the arches and the interior is mint. You have got a little gem of a car .

    may be we can see this car at one of our meets soonish.

    Yes she is in great condition as she was wax oiled from new and garage kept no rust on arches,sills etc just a 50p size rust spot on bottom of back window. All the electrics work fine and the engine is really good.

    Hope to take her to one of your meets this summer I have entered her into a few classic car shows in Essex/Kent this summer so you may see her around.

    hi been saving 1st Generation hondas for a few years now as i love them there so practical, versatile , reliable, easy to work on, fun to drive with the 5 speed gearbox,
    i have taken them on autotest at northweld air field than handle and perform very well surprised there was no rally heritage , as they handle like a lanca delta better than a golf gti , only trouble is controlling the wheel spin ,
    i was surprised while shopping i picked up my weekly copy of the classic car buyer 19th dec to see they printed my article on them as they found it informative ,
    they don't tend to no lot about jap cars there mane interests are British and europe cars ,

    Crumbs thats in fine fettle and I bet sounds like the day it came off the line.
    It's strange how people now-a-days think a car only lasts 10-15 years before its only fit for toasters.
    Loving the velour seats, they look in better condition than my E30 sport seats AND more supportive.
    Hopefully a meet will get sorted out once the weather improves.
    ie warm enough to stand about for a couple of hrs.

    i love the comfort the seats offer much softer snug than the newer cars offer, great for long distance, run her all the way from lady port to harlow good position hight and support and retro look, thats why i guess they were so popluar in american where they could not build them quick enough they had a 3 month waiting list with down payments in the 70s, shame it seem to be very unpopular car in this country for some reason, car of the year in 79 by autotest and the guardian, in the top ten of track and roads magazines best all time car, gave hondas reputation for reliable cars to buy,
