So last year me and my wife got married and had our beutiful daughter come into our lives. For a wedding/push present she jokingly said she wanted a 3rd gen prelude after seeing one on the tv. On my almost daily trawl through facebook marketplace i found one, a 2.0 12v twin carb ex in red with 92k on the clock. Not motd since 2014, the tyres have british kite marks on them so they are probably as old as me, but bar a bit of rust on the arches its clean! How much did i pay? Well considering the japanese car market post lockdown, 2k? 3k? 4k???? Nope! £650.....six hundred and fifty quid. At first i thought the ad was false, i messaged the seller he says it starts, but it doesnt drive as there is an issue with the clutch. He confirmed the price, sent some more photos and i buzzed him a deposit. Now i had to figure out how to get it from birmingham to my house in central scotland almost 300 miles away, i phoned my mate who knew a guy who would lend us a recovery truck, armed with a pocket of change, a couple tanks of diesel and a frankie and bennys later we had another honda on the driveway.
