1998 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe
I bought my 1998 Prelude Base Coupe 4sp. manumatic with 74K miles on it in 2006 as my first car. LOVED it! It was the best car I ever owned. In the year that I had it, I only replaced the O2 sensor. Not bad. The reason I had to get rid of it? It cost me too much to keep it. I was only 17, not making much money and couldn't afford the low profile tires (stock wheels, mind you), the premium fuel and, of course, the insurance company ate me alive. I didn't do my homework before I bought it. So, if you can afford the cost of ownership, this will be a great car.
You don't neeed to put premium fuel in if you don't want to. 91 will run just fine but if it's power you want then 98 is the way to go. If you're not after performance then this car would be pretty cheap (especially if you're insured through AAMI... for some reason they're really cheap for Preludes)
