My grandfather bought this amazing car when he was a young man and being the caring man that he is had kept it despite wrecking it in a accident. He got it fixed and running again and after years of loving this car, he decided to get something more modern. There it sat for years until I graduated in 2004 and so the passing of keys from the previous gen to the new underwent. I've always admired Honda for their reliability and their innovative designs, but when the first gen Accord became mine I was so happy that I decided to never EVER let it go, no matter what. I've had so many adventures in this car and this car has shared with me all the good times and bad times I've had since then. I've wrecked it once in a freeway and when it was said that it couldn't be salvaged, I dished out the bucks to get it going again because I think that's what it deserved. I've always wanted to race this car out so it could keep up with the 20th century era of vehicles, but I come from a poor background and all I've been able to do was give it the minor repairs that it needed as time went on. My dream car isn't a 2013 auto with all the flashy things that make today's cars amazing, but it is my 1980 Honda that I’ll never let go. Considering how old she is, she is in great condition, though I've seen online people who have similar years and in mint condition, she has some rust and a couple dents, the trunk leaks and she is currently not running because of carb. issues but all in all this is def a car that needs new life. I always wanted people to see her and have respect for it because I feel that its cars like these that bred the ideas of the car that consumers sit in today. Maybe I’ll make it happen with lots of luck, but what would be a dream come true is if Honda granted a wish for a dedicated Honda man and lead in the project, that way no matter the age, it would shine.
