1982 Honda Prelude / $250 OBO

* Good condition, 266k miles
* 5 speed
* Runs but needs engine tuneup to pass emissions
* Factory electric sunroof
* Very good tires
* Normal condition for car of this age
* Will need battery soon

Detailed description:
1) Wiper blades needs to be replaced, intermittent feature doesn't work
due to worn relay part.
2) Thin vertical crack in windshield (shown in pic), doesn't appear to be
too serious.
3) Some bumper,front of hood, minor left front fender wheel well damage.
A few rust spots near wheel wells.
4) Factory electric sunroof works.
5) Car starts, may need battery soon.
6) Car smokes and that's why it didn't pass emissions.
7) Front seats have simulated sheepskin covers.
8) All other glass, carpet, interior panels, rear seats excellent condition
with exception of cover over top of rear seat and rear deck from sun
damage.

looks like a good deal for $250! I'd pick it up if I were you (coming from someone who has owned 4 1st gens)

the damage isn't terrible, if you have any good junkyards around you, you could probably get new parts for that for $100 or so

I've got 220k on my car and it runs very nicely still. My parts car has about the same and still runs pretty good too.

For $250, I dont think it's really that much of an investment to pick it up if you really want one of these cars. The interior looks to be in pretty good shape (except for the floor mats and seats).

Get it!

A car with an electric sunroof that works. And it runs. For $250 I'd pick it up.
