In 1988 my aunt bought a Chateau Red Metallic (aka burgundy) LX sedan. For whatever reason it sat most of its life in her garage until 2001 when she gave it to my mom for my sister to use for high school.
After my sister went to college, I ended up with the car in the summer of 2005. I hadn't even driven a car regularly since 1998 when I went to college, so it was nice having some wheels. The thing was practically mint looking with 118,000 miles, and I grew to love it and enjoyed driving it. It was pretty zippy (that LX tranny is super torquey w00t) and fun to drive, though it didn't have a lot of power especially on hills.
I didn't really have much direction as far as what I wanted to do with it and was pretty n00bish car-wise, but I did end up buying some ventshades (first AEM, then OEM which i never installed cause the aem ones were stuck on lol) and an EQ which i modded to accept external inputs for my CD player and later my ipod. I also bought a pair of brand new front Koni Reds since they were so rare. I didn't even know when I would be able to buy the rest of the suspension to lower the car but I bought em anyways. A couple times when I really needed money I put em up for sale on here and ebay but I always changed my mind after I wasn't broke any more lol.
Unfortunately the car did have a problem with overheating that I neglected to fix.. which was eventually my downfall as it warped the head gasget and I ended up selling the car for $200
Here's a few pix:
