This is the 1st Honda built in the USA, and a departure from the smaller Japanese cars that preceded it. This 2nd generation Accord was built between 1981 and 1985, and introduced the world to in car navigation- called the Electro Gyro-Cater, using a helium gas gyroscope and transparent maps illuminated on a screen...think 1960's James Bond. This is one of those every day cars that no one thought to hang onto- but also a really important piece of automotive history as it solidified Honda in the US car market and began the dominance of Japanese cars in the 1980's. This car was on display at a local Honda dealership before landing in my collection in 2018.
