MTREC Just Kicked In, Yo: 1991 Honda Beat

Juan Pablo Augustus Pininfarina put this mighty pen to paper many times over the years to design some beautiful cars..exotics, mid-engine things and the like...but few people know that old John-Pap-Pin (as his friends in the pub called him) designed the 1991-1996 Honda Beat.  Find this 1991 Honda Beat here on eBay bidding for $1300 with $3,200 buy-it-now located in Seattle, WA.

  1. Thelackopunctuationcombinedwiththestaccatosyntaxmakesforamildlyinterstingreadinandofitself.

    Octane booster? Or would 93 do the trick?

    1. So you are saying that prose has no beat so you can't dance to it?

  2. "No longer available". Looked like a great deal, if condition was good. I guess we will never know.....

  3. BTW if you want to buy a mid engine car that was the last car approved by the founder of an eponymously named car company and designed by Pininfarina you are pretty much stuck deciding between Soichiro Honda's Beat or Enzo Ferrari's F40.

    Lets see, a beater F40 or 400 Beats. ( I kid, obviously the Ferrari is a more practical buy, have you seen the price for a 400 car garage much less the cost of suing the local HOA? )

    I don't know which is more giggle provoking , the fact that the math just worked out that way or imagining inviting 399 of my closest friends to help me go on a drive with my 400 Beats.
