I need to understand this term "garage queen", sounds like it might be useful.
I have a soft spot for things like this:
Someone who would know. Now, be reassured that good taste is just a shortcut for "bourgeois taste and sensibilities as defined before it went all crumbling in the 80s, leading up to the place we are at now", I don't follow most of these guidelines in my life (I mostly opt for what wouldn't be in good taste) but I generally know what good taste is.
McLaren F1? Honda NSX?
You are wrong. Not that I imagine Manton got it for this reason, but that was one of the last great Accord designs before Honda began their long, slow descent into mediocrity. A friend has a 97 that I get to drive occasionally, and it's a blast.
Personally, I was going to guess wagon.
The Accord went downhill after the '88-'90 versions. They are way more difficult to steal now.
The Prelude of that era was the beez kneez. And I am a sworn enemy of Honda.
Say what you will about Honda, but the stuff just keeps on ticking.
My father has a Honda car, lawnmower, outboard boat motor, and generator, and all of it just keeps. on. going. None of it is very sexy, but I don't want sexy in an outboard, I want it to just work, forever.
I don't have any Honda stuff cause, well, I live in New York and don't have much use for small engines. But if I ever needed to buy a generator or something, they'd be right at the top of the list.
You guys know you are all proving Manton's thesis, right?
Tread lightly. I once was looking for a watch and a friend told me to look for a "safe queen," but when I responded to the craigslist ad it turned out I was paying for something very different.
Still enjoyable, though.
I travel mostly by limousine. I buy people, not cars.
did you get your clock cleaned?
Same color, too!
'til the wheels fell off. Try as I might, there was no escapement.
Is it that metallic beige/gold color? That's what my friend's is as well. And it has that cool power antenna that goes up when you turn on the radio.
Separate names with a comma.
