Honda Integra/ Prelude/ Accord 1978-99
If the budget won’t run to five figures but you still want a car with some character and a decent chance of surviving, take a look at these Hondas. The VTi-R Integra was sporty without being too uncompromising and quality cars only cost $7000. If you want a drive-car that still shapes up well for club motorsport, look at spending up to $15,000 on a Type R. Early all-yellow ones are scarce and have the better prospects for becoming collectible. Preludes which in all their forms make sense as cheap, stylish transport. Older Accords and especially pre-1985 Hatchbacks are hard to find, still not expensive and worth preserving.
