1998 Honda Prelude — I love the performance this car has. It has always been my favorite Honda. The auto tranny failed on me and I had to convert it to a manual. The car is so much more fun to drive now. Perfomance - acceleration (VTEC), superior handling, tons of aftermarket goodies avail. Appearance - the car has a very good look in stock form and needed only a few changes. The car has a very aggressive look. Beautiful lines.

Pros: Performance, Appearance, Fun to drive, Rare

Cons: Auto Tranny, Black - always washing it.

One Of A Kind — This is the best car I have ever owned - it looks fantastic from the outside, and its actual performance more matches the aggressive style of the car. The VTEC engine is quite civilised below the 5200 mark, but savage once you get beyond it - sounds very good as well. Corners like its on rails and has put the fun back into driving. The interior is comfortable, but rear seats are for joke value only (who cares) - the dashboard has a very cool 80's style spacecraft feel and makes you feel very important! In short - an absolutely great car that will outperform any boy racer and a good deal of supposedly superior cars - especially fun when BMW drivers try to dust you off the lights (it can easily leave a BMW 525i behind) - Buy one immediately!

Pros: ONE WORD FANTASTIC

Cons: nottta

First Passion Car — Great Honda Prelude, full options, really good looking, green with cream leather, well manufactured, reliable. I just like when people ask me what car it is, it's not a really common car here in France.

Pros: great car, good looking, etc.

Cons: not much interior space

Prelude — Preludes are the greatest cars ever made by any automaker hands down. They handle extremely well, and have a good amount of power, although you could always have more. There is plenty of space for those riding in the front, but if your stuck in the back then you might want to consider walking.

Pros: Performance, Appearance

Cons: Front Wheel Drive
