returning back to Honda ownership

Hello again I was a proud owner of a nice 2 owner 1992 Accord LX 5 speed original engine and transmisson until December last year. My lovely CB7 was parked off the road and behind a tree but yet a high school kid in a 2006 Honda Civic was still able too hit it on front drives side. Impact was hard enough too make the axle come out of place and also moveed the car which was in first gear and had parking brake on back a foot or so from where it was. Insurance company he had payed off the car at 1475 bucks and I was just OK with that as the car was not a show car and I had only done minor work too it. So fast forward too yesterday when I went too test drive a private sellers 1996 Accord LX 5 speed. Car has 152000 miles on it and has a few issues like it was a quart of oil low and passanger side bumper and turn signal cover are both loose and out of alignment. Also looks like it has a oil leak in driver side because there was oil on top of the cv boot and also headlights are hazy and paint has no clearcoat hardly at all. I also noticed clutch pedal release was higher then my old cb7 but clutch still pulled car strong so maybe there's wear in the hydralic system? Sorry to ramble on so long just wanted too jump back into CB7tuner.com full force and get too talking about the best brand of cars I have ever owned. I forgot too mention car was listed for 2300 I got it for 1800 seems KBB was right around that for what this car has option wise and for its condition which I would call fair

I wanted to get back into the cb game but couldn't find the right ones and most of them were too far long gone.

Yeah I saw like 5 cb7's on craiglists around here cheap but most were poorly modded and rusty or just rusty lol living in PA sucks for cars as most are rusty or just abused by morons my new cd5 is more a case of the latter. Car was purchased yesterday for 1700 not 1800 as I talked him down and car has a few minor issues and needs a timing belt asap. I took a bunch of pictures though so please do come back I just need to create a photobucket and also do more cleaning so it looks ok in pics. Very happy with car so far it is a lot like my cb7 but if I can say this here I feel like it is even better in most ways if not all I still do like the look of a clean stock cb7 sedan more then a clean stock 96 -97 sedan though

That looks good for $1800 man. I couldn't find any 94-97 Accords around here that were five speed, but I ended up with a 92.

I could see if you were loading huge, hi res pictures, but youre not. Do you have dial up? lol Its hella irritating and time consuming to open a new tab every single time rather than just scrolling like a normal person.
