    lowest miles eva? my 92 lx w/ 19k actual miles!

    Had this a few months now - when I got it, it only had 18XXX miles on it! put about 1k on it so far.

    Here is the story: I bought it at a foreclosure auction, the old man had dozens of pieces of property and was being forced to sell them off. This accord was sitting in the backyard, hadn't been driven in a few years, tons of leaves and dirt, and the interior had never been vacuumed - kind of gross.

    But about a weeks worth of scrubbing revealed a virtually perfect interior!

    I changed the timing belt, water pump and gave it a full tune up just to be safe, and the original stuff was all in there so I wanted to make sure, as I hope to keep this car at least 5-10 years and with these miles I think I can!

    Unfortunately it needs a quarter panel on the driver's side (from a fender bender I assume) and there are some scratches and dings, but I am saving up to get all that fixed. If anyone ever comes across some perfect fenders in opal green let me know!

    Added the factory wheels (bought them off ebay) as I want to keep this stock looking and restored...

    Here are the pics:

      Beautiful! I love that rare color. Not driving a car enough can be as bad or even worse than a really high mileage car. Be sure to check out all the important pieces like timing belt/water pump etc when you have the chance. I know there's definately more to check out, but can't think of it at the moment. I'm sure others will chime in.

          Do you have a link?

          And don't worry too much, I don't drive that much (live across the street from my college, etc...) so it will probably only see 3-5k miles a year if that.

          THANKS! But yes as soon as I got it, I didn't even put 50 miles on it and I went and spent a ton replacing timing belt/water pump/drive belts etc... as they had been on there since 1992. Didn't want to take any chances!

              That's a gem! Take great care of it and drive safely Were the calipers seized up? How's the condition of the whole suspension? What other things did it need or what else did you replace on it?

                no nothing was seized up from sitting, BUT i had to replace the control arms and bearing on the drivers rear wheel from the fender bender - which I guess is why the old man parked the car! The rear wheel was slightly cocked. So I got a trusted shop to do that and they fixed it up good as new - aligns perfectly and everything. Easy fix and only a couple hundred bucks!

                The suspension was great - I told the shop to replace or fix ANYTHING AT ALL it needed and they didn't even want to do the brakes or anything on the suspension other than what I mentioned - they said it would just be a waste!

                Other than that I just did all the tune up stuff, the timing belt and water pump i mentioned, brand new tires, the wheels from ebay, and there were a few tiny pieces missing (like the tan clips in the trunk) but i am obsessive and got all those from a pull-a-part.

                By the way if anyone needs any tan interior parts I have quite a few (I actually just bought a parts car yesterday to have as a backup - in case I ever need a window or something - yes I am CB7 crazy now and this is my first honda EVER! and I am 29!)

                Oh and it had the factory floor mats! The rears were absolutely untouched - I honestly think no one had ever sat in the backseat until I bought the car and took my friends out to eat! But sadly there was an ink spot on one and they were both kind of dirty, they are still in my trunk where they will stay, but I bought some matching custom mats off ebay to protect the interior, I took the factory perfect rears out to preserve them! Maybe one day when I have the car showroom perfect I will have my factory fronts recovered and put them back in.

                        Nice find there buddy You got the EX wheels too, which look better than the LX ones IMO.

                          Lets hope the body holds up nice. That thing is going to last you for years if you keep it in good shape. You did a nice job cleaning that car up, I can't imagine how filthy it was after sitting for a couple of years.

                            VERY good find, definately keep it. Heck you could beat the crap out of it and get another 100k easily b/c it's a honda. Treat it good you'll get 200k plus more.
