    Everyone has an Accord in their life ; maybe your grandpappy had one, maybe your mom drives one, maybe YOU drive one. What's your Accord story, ACCORDing to you?

      My Dad had a 98 accord with a vtec when I was groing up. Had a lot of good memories. I didn't even relize it could haul some serious ads until I was 16 and I got to drive it! I wish we still had it now..

    I'm still in love with my 5th gen 95' Accord coupe with that 2.2L V-TEC beastie boy under the hood. I drive a G37S coupe most of the time these days, but the Accord still gets loved on. It was the first car I ever bought, and I plan on it being the last one I ever sell. Some people may make fun of us, but I still love when V-TEC kicks in ;) My parents don't love that I keep it at their house though because I only have 1 allotted parking space and the can't keep 3 cars at my place.

    If you're live in or are visiting the Columbus area, good news, Honda now offers plant tours of the Marysville plant. Seems like you have to book at least a couple months in advance, though. There is also a Honda museum that you can visit on most days. Just watch out for Highway Patrol on the drive there. The piece of Route 33 in Union County, between Dublin and Marysville is a speed trap.

    You could actually get a pretty cool 06/07 Accord SEDAN V6 with a 6 SPEED MANUAL (I had an 07) they were differentiated with OEM wheels that were identical to the CL type S. CARBON FIBER TRIM inside and an ALUMINUM SHIFT KNOB. The only other difference on the outside was it a v6 badge was in red instead of black. I'd love to have another.

      +vivi xD idk s2000 nsx and you could throw the Integra and civic si or type r in there... the normal person can't afford a NSX and the S2000 they don't make anymore. So all you have left is a front-wheel drive hot hatch. I just never looked at them as a racing oriented company or car manufacturer like Nissan or even Toyota imo

    I had a '99 V6 Accord. Was going to fix it up but ended up selling it. Forgot that I bought a set of Eibach Pro-Kit lowering springs for it. Now I have to get rid of them. If you want a set that was never installed and live near San Antonio leave a comment. I am taking $100 off for a quick sell. Only $160!

    Hate to break it to you guys but the 2.2l engine the 5th gen accord had was not an h22 engine they came with an f22b2 (non vtec) or the f22b1 (vtec) although both the f22 and h22 had interchangeable parts such as the transmission or the axles or engine mounts

    Our 09 base LX Accord is 216k+ miles and counting. Not the fastest in our stable (15 EX Sport & 18 GT350) nor the prettiest but she sure is reliable. Other than normal wear items, car is mostly original except for the dampeners. It's also a J VIN Accord, born in Osaka Japan. Hoping to make 500k miles. I think it can be done.
