1994 Honda Prelude Si 2dr Coupe
The reputation of this car speaks for itself, I searched high and low before deciding on this one, and looked at all the usual suspects (Eclipse, F-Body), as well as more specailzed sports cars (300ZX, MR2, SVX). No other car could match the Prelude as far as performance and reliablity, the MR2 was my second choice, but I need at least some backseat.
Reliability (bought at 105k, now at 120k not a problem), quality, shifter on loan from God himself, sweet sounds from the solid-lifter valvetrain.
Lower the service costs, this thing costd more than any of its compeditiors, including the BMW 3-series to maintain, parts are very high as well.
