    Wonder how much those Mugen wheels are worth on their own, with all 4 covers no less

    Gorgon-ugly 13s? Not much from this buyer, frankly. It reminds me of an old Cordoba with those too-big balloon tires.

    Did they not put double-wishbones on the back wheels of those cars?

    The accord is a bit big for the 13s, these would be more suited to a Honda city turbo

    I think they used lower control arms like our fronts with a strut rod for some reason. Cruise thru the pictures the rear suspension is shown plus the rusty underneath of a 29k??? mile car.

    Yeah I never got those rims besides the Mugens...fugly.

    Not quite, thats a 3rd gen prelude, this is a pre refresh 87, so its a 2nd gen. The 3rd gen looks almost identical to our suspension, dont let the lack of a big trailing arm fool you.
    This is a 2nd gen: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/19...lude-si-2-0-3/
    It is totally different from most other hondas, its a semi rear trailing arm, unlike our multi link. Basically the difference is the lack of an upper control arm, so the camber gain is similar to a macpherson strut.
