Functional And Fun — One of my first cars. I enjoyed driving it, flip headlights are fun and along with the lower seating felt a little sporty....but not much :)

My Baby!!! — My first real investment in a car. Paid $3000 for it in 1995. Kept it until 1999 when I sold it and moved back to Barbados. Sold it to a friend who had it impounded. Damn shame. Treated her better than i treated my g/f and she took care of me. Never left me stranded. 2 1/4 cat-back exhaust w/ Flowmaster muffler used to rattle windows and set off car alarms in Kings Plaza parking garage.

What Can I Say? — I have a 1986 accord hatchback. bought it for $924.00 Can on a car lot taxes and all. It needs a muffler. I drive a car with 350,000km on it and it burns no oil. goes like a bat out of hell and sounds great doing it. I would buy another if I could find one but they are very rare here. It's built like a tank and has handling that makes many newer cars look like a joke. it's stock. I won my last three races based on the little bit of power and the insane handling. passengers rave about how ere it corners even on ice and how easy I can throw it around. I can't say enough about it. the only stock car I ever liked better for handling is my Rx7, but the savings in gas with my accord s make it the better car hands down.
