In the big picture of fast cars I peronally don't beleive that my 97' prelude is fast but, as for as stock 4 banger automatic goes it is very fast.
The car is very fun and comfortable, also extemely reliable. I live in Butte montana it can get to be -25 degees below vero during the winter and the car has started every time!!!
H22A vtec (sweet motor!!!!!!)
sport shift (some people don't like Some do.)
power everything!! standard (the cadillac of import sports cars)
The interior is a little to tame but not neary as blah as the gauges in a toyota supra or mitsubishi 3000gt
