1990 Honda Prelude

A bit boxy, with the notchback rear, the 1990 Honda Prelude nevertheless had many fans.

The favorite descriptors for the car are "great," "cool," "fast and fun." Others include the "quintessential Japanese sports car,” and "reliable and nimble."

One driver, in obvious appreciation of the 105 hp produced by the 4-cylinder 2 liter engine said, "Yet, that was me that flew past you."

Given the age today, there aren't many 1990 Preludes around. But if you're lucky enough to find one, you can expect to pay between $100 for a parts-car to $3500 for one in very very good shape.
