ANYONE WHO knows the vast car tally of Wheels contributo­r Byron Mathioudak­is won’t be surprised to know this ’89 Prelude is his. Says Lord Byron: “The more time that passes, the more breathtaki­ng its design becomes – how impossibly low the bonnet-line is, how exquisite the detailing. It stands as a moment in time for the potential of what Honda could’ve been. They were their own premium brand! I much prefer it over the late-’90 facelift, which became fussy outside and bland inside.”
