    What to look for when buying a 1st Gen Accord?

    New to the 1geez community. I have recently blown up my 300+hp Mazdaspeed 6 and its time for a change in pace. I have come across a single owner 1980 Honda Accord with the 5spd manual transmission. The car has 119k miles. Owner claims the car is 100% original other than maintenance parts. I am going to look at the car on Sunday 10/25/20 what should I look for and be wary of? Common points of failure? Things to look for in a test drive? Searched the 1geez forum with a couple key words and didn't find anything but if there's already an existing thread call me stupid and point me in the right direction.

    How did you make out with this? 119k is not bad miles.
