Awesome — performance: among the best, great acceleration and impecible handling always with zero body roll Build Quality: it looked like it was at one point very good, but as i got the car second hand my frame needed to be rebuilt from scratch when i bought it Appearance: given its age the car was absolutely beautiful, very streamlined. the interior only had one ugly piece... the gauge cluster Cost: better gas mileage than some new vehicles, and being a honda the motor will last forever. fun factos=10 of 10

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great All Around Vehicle; Excellent Performance, But Very Drivable Every Day Too. — This is my current project. I bought this '90 Si after my '91 got run over by a Jeep, and swapped all of the good/better parts from the '91 into this chassis, along with some new goodies. I've dumped quite a bit of money into almost every aspect of this car, but I wouldn't have it any other way, and I'll probably never be done playing with it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It's got incredible handling, and all around is a blast to drive!

Cons: My only big problem is that it's small enough that a lot of people don't see it [especially lowered]

K2000 — Acceleration is up to 200km/h. Prefect handling. Abs brakes. The appearance is too sporty and both interior and exterior styling is sporty.. The car is too fun to drive and it is also safe and easy to drive...Good luck.

Pros: Too sporty

Cons: It is rare

Sporty Classic 80's Sports Car Looks And Handles Like A Dream — Let's start with the engine it's not a high rever like most hondas good tourqe from a 2 liter engine at 130 ft/lbs almost as much as the 135 hp. The transmission feels a bit sticky at times but that could be just the 200,000 plus kms the ratios in first and second are quite long. Build quality seems real well no squeeks or rattles. The back seat is rather tiny tho... The exteirior styling is really classic with it's flip up head lights and low center of gravity styling and almost has a mini firrari look to it haha even tho it ain't no firrari speed wise it could come close in handling. interior styling is a little bland but well laid out and in reach of the driver. Great visibility and no major blind spots. Cost of owning this car is Relitivly low if you maintain it properly. not the best fuel econemy for a 2.0l but it is 20 years old so for it's time it's pretty good about 25 mpg As far as fun to drive goes it's super nimble holds the road like on rails due to it's low wide stance and stiff suspension. Power is modderate all in all it's pretty fun to drive All in all i rate it 6 out of 10

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: nimble, classic styling, handling, outward visability

Cons: small back seat, not to many mods availible

3rd Gen Honda Prelude 12v Ex — Totally love this car, only small niggle is that the engine doesnt really kick in till about 3000 revs, with the v-tec its not till 5000! She isnt too bad on fuel, about 35mpg and is cheap to insure because shes a 'classic' car! Love driving it, brilliant!

Pros: wicked car!

Cons: ex is the basic model so no air con but other models have it.
