    New 3G owner

    After I wrecked my Corolla about a month ago I was driving around with my dad and saw an old blue Accord at a gas station/mechanic in my town and mentioned to him about how much I liked the old flip up headlights. To my surprise I saw the same car on Yahoo Auto while looking for an old Honda or Toyota. I thought it was too good to be true, 99k miles, it was in great condition cosmetically and, most importantly, the AC worked!

    I bought it the next day and I've had to get a few repairs done on it but I love it I'm very pleasantly surprised that a site like this exists and there are even people from my area on here :O but I guess you can find anything on the internet if you look hard enough haha.

    Anyways I drive a blue 86 LX and I plan on keeping it for quite some time. It's a Honda so it should have another 200,000 miles in it, right? I'll probably be around here quite a bit looking for advice on fixing it up and customizing it.

    Considering I've averaged 5,000 a year in my last two years of driving, it might last me the rest of my life

    Re: New 3G owner

    The pictures I've got are pretty boring but it's been way too hot out lately to take it out anywhere for pictures. Plus it needs a wash :/

    uh oh they're way too big. I'll just put up links to the images until I have time to resize them.

    Anyways, here it is

    The good, no dents or scratches, low miles and clean interior:

    http://mypage.iu.edu/~auhall/images/.../interior1.JPG
    http://mypage.iu.edu/~auhall/images/.../interior2.JPG

    The bad, a little bit of wheel well rust and bad rust inside the fuel door not seen, glove compartment needs a new latch and antenna needs to be unbent so it can fully retract:
