One of 47: 1982 Honda Prelude

People sometimes ask me if there is a car that is too weird, too eclectic, or too crappy to be featured on the front page of Daily Turismo.  "NO", I scream with a foaming rage, "THERE IS NOTHING TOO NUTTY OR ODD TO BE POSTED ON THIS SITE."  And then the men in the white coats come and ask me to stop harassing the other inmates.  But if only they would take a spin in this sweet manual transmission equipped rag top, they would understand. Find this 1982 Honda Prelude offered for $4500 in Tucker, GA via craigslist. Tip from Matt C.

See a better way to drive something topless?


  1. Think it has a bit of a blind spot with the top up?

    First car I've seen that would make me jealous of the rear visibility a Countach owner would have.
