    Thanks for checking out my 3G resto blog ( – not sure if mine will help, inspire or deter you but these cars are definitely worth the effort as they’re great to drive and still turn heads nearly 30 years after they were fist launched!

    Good luck with all the fixes and upgrades – I’ll keep checking back!

      Hey Phil,
      Thanks for the comment.
      A lot of people have told me it isn’t worth it to fix one up, but I don’t think anything will deter me from rebuilding one of these magnificent cars.
      Good luck to you too!

    Good luck with your car! I have had almost the same exact relationship with my car. I also bought it as a project car in 2014, and still haven’t driven it! Check out my build thread on

    I’ve got an 89 prelude and I’ve got a pretty similar relationship with it. I love it but can’t stand having to fix it every weekend or so. Runs great even when something breaks. It’s never left me stranded. I just hate having to fix it.
