    Accord magazine articles, adverts & brochures

    Right, I found these images of period Accord magazine articles courtesy of Trigger's retro roadtests on Flicker and I thought we should have a thread for these and others that people have & can share.
    I also have bunch of Australian & US articles to add soon that I had scanned for the www.nipponklassik.de website who had displayed them for a while but has now reduced to just a thumbnail, so I will have to dig them up again & rehost them somewhere....
    In the meantime please add any more you can find.

    edit: We've already got some brochure threads:
    European Accord brochures
    lostscotiaguy's
    brochures
    2nd gen guy also posted this one:

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing those! I've got a couple magazines with some road tests in them as well. I will have to scan and post them soon!

    Still adding files to this folder:
    http://sdrv.ms/MZXxTf
    I found the tests I had scanned, some include multiple pages within a Tiff file that might not be seen fully until downloaded but others are still page-by-page so I wonder about trying to stick them together in a similar way, or upload as is...

    Hard to believe they put a Ford Fairmont up against a 1g. That is classic!

    Accord first review
    Wheels (AUST) Dec1976.


    Accord short drive.
    Car&Driver (USA) May1977.


    Accord short drive.
    Wheels (AUST) Feb1979.


    Accord Sedan & Prelude test reviews.
    Road&Track Buyers guide (USA) Dec1979


    Prelude test review
    ModernMotor (AUST) July 1979

    Added so far.

    Fairmont comparison certainly shows how radically the market was changing, & how expensive the Accord was.
    The Prelude tests showed how disappointed they were that it wasn't a revolution over the Accord, after waiting vainly for Honda to build an Accord to take on the Scirocco more directly.

    Those are sweet man! Thanks for posting! I'll see about uploading the images to the 3geez image host and then doing a sticky so they are archived forever.

    There are some very interesting clips in there, their reviews are very thorough when it comes to breaking down the specs for the cars!

    Re: Accord magazine articles, adverts & brochures

    Just stumbled across the Japanese 1st & 2nd generation Accord Owners club website again & thought I should share this '81 Accord brochure/advertising I found there.


    note Painted bumpers (Longleet Gold I think.),
    Prelude steering wheel & interesting seats.

    Edit:
    Found more pictures of it here:

    Man they have SUCH classier looking cars than ours are.



    Also, I dunno if that's an optional dash that they had, but I really like that. with all the ticks in between and the different fonts.

    Beautiful photos/lighting.
    Hadn't noticed the gauges before, (too busy saving copies) the black surround & finer incremental markings does give a different look to normal grey
    I Like the black b-pillar trim, black interior & bold colour. Big additional bump-stops. Black sills & tail-lamp trim? ...
    Suddenly made me think of Hazwans car again.
