This is what im looking at:
1987 Accord DX Hatch
Metalic blue - Dealer Quality
Manual Trans
New Clutch - Tuming belt
77k miles

Dealer wants 3000, but I can prolly talk down a little..you guys have any thoughts...3k seems kind of on the high end for an 87..even with 77k mi

i would talk it down to 2500 that seems like a good price but 3000 aint bad especially for the miles

for 2500 you can buy a 4th gen!

I came
I saw
I smacked that dealer in the face

Such a bullshit waste of time...the thing was totally rusted out from the inside..oh well as i type im heading out the door to look at a 92 accord EX for the same price......

Also talked to some one today that has a business buying cars from the South that were in wrecks...brings em back and fixes em and then sells em. Apparently I can get a 94 civic (forget model) all power etc for 4k....and thats with 80k mi

Welcome aboard and good luck picking your car. You don't have to have a 3G Accord to be a member of this board, man. Just keep that in mind.

Please remember you can get almost everything rebuilt but a rusted out body is no place to start

Well it's not a 3g but I like it a lot..

1992 Accord EX (black!) 4 dr
156k mi (one of the drawbacks)
Auto trans
Tinted Windows (yay)
moonroof (not sure if thats standard for EX but I like it)

Theres some rust like on the front part of hood form rocks on highway etc and some starting in other places but very minimal ..the biggest prob I see with it is on the right rear wheel well theres a hole about the size of a dime on the bottom of the well by the rocker pannels...I'm hoping i can get something welded on and the rest of the rust removed from some one for < 500

oh yeah and I paid 2600 (talked down from 3000) for it
I'll post some pcis when I get it from the DMV on monday

oh one more thing..and I'll post this in questrions too.. The o2 sensor is out so the check engine light goes on all the time, from what I hear it doesnt hinder driving performance - im just wondering how much they cost to replace etc
