Hello, here’s a rust free 1985 Honda City Cabrio, it’s a jdm, right hand drive (rhd) titled here in WA with collector plates doesn’t need tabs, 125,700km approx 78,100 miles & runs great! It’s not show quality but very presentable..
I don’t need help selling this & I won’t ship it! cash only!! Serious inquires only please

See a better way to drive something JDMtastic?


  1. She's got the look - Pininfarina. If it had a fold down pickup style rear trunk door & a manual, I'd be all over it ..

  2. Nogora Blue - HELLO KITTY !

  3. Is there life after turbo & motocompo delete …

  4. I would use it as a street licensed golf cart with heater & room for a Dangerfield beer dispenser.

  5. At 1200 cc, 44 bhp and only 1400 lbs, this will not be a horribly slow car (I come from a 600 cc,29 bhp 1200 lbs Citroen 2CV, so I know of what I speak!). The downside to this particular car is the automatic, which Wiki says is a 2-speed plus overdrive. I imagine that takes some of the pep out of things. I still think this looks like a reasonable deal on a fun, quirky car.

  6. Look's like a Renault Lecar left in the dryer on high 4 too long....

  7. If you have more than 4 JDM cars are you legally required to live in Washington state? It seems like every one of these things comes from Washington and every picture shows a herd of JDM goodness in the background.

    1. My Nissan Guy has a lot of rare JDM stuff and he does have other makes

  8. And a 73ish Nova in the background. Are all the JDM stuff in Washington because of the ports?
