Behold... really? Isn't this just a car? like... collecting a washing machine? This Honda was the top selling car in USA in 1991. Japanese cars ruled the late 80's and into the 90's- with the Accord at the top spot from 89' to 91' followed by a few years of the Taurus, and then came the Toyota Camry. Honda's just didn't break, unless the timing belt did, then they really broke. Honda uses an Interference Engine: if you lose your timing belt, the valves will be crushed by the pistons. Honda owners- replace your timing belt when prescribed. So- nothing really special about this EX, other than cars like this were used like appliances, and discarded. There are not many left, and very very few with under 50,000 miles like this one. And that is what makes it collectible. Adult collectors want the car their family had, or they learned to drive on, or had in high school- and for a generation, this was likely it. This was part of a collection I acquired from a local dealer in 2019- and was to be displayed in a Honda dealership. Plans changed, and it ended up at the Car Barn. Best retro feature- those short-lived automatic seatbelts before airbags became the standard. I love watching Millennials see those in action... or looking for the switch when the car has roll down windows...
