    I do have a few but have to get them off friends camera. Right now just tune it up and get it ready to be a daily driver. Someone stripped the threads for the spark plugs, broke a few wheel studs, and it has a huge hole in the exhaust. Hopefully in the future though i'm going to find a descent motor and tranny from the p&p and rebuild both. For right now just do some basic things like put a cold air intake(I heard one for a 5th gen accord will fit nicely?). The body's in great shape just a few small rust spots that i've addressed.

    They do rule I needed a daily driver and in the trading post I got it from it didn't say it was a hatch. Nothing personal, but I don't much care for the older non hatch body styles so I was thoroughly pleased after I saw it. It has 160k miles on it, still brand new for a honda , so it was 800 dollars well spent.

    If you are looking for an intake, make it yourself with the jc whitney piping like mine. Money well worth spent!
