This is the section on the car I currently own which is a 1986 Honda Accord EX-i. I bought it in January 1997 after my parents thought my old car was too dangerous to be on the road. I bought the car from a couple who wanted to use the money for a down payment on a new car so I was able to get it for $4800 which was a great deal at the time since most EX-i's were anywhere from $6000-$7500. The power sunroof was something I really wanted and having options like power mirrors and cruise control helped make the decision easier. I've never had any problems over the three years plus I've customized it so much I have no choice but to keep it for a little while longer. All the customizing has been done by me except for the paint job so I've tried to include info on how to do stuff. I think I built this car to where it's at for relatively cheap since I never have to pay for labour. Also, if you have any questions, please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
