    No way it’s worth 25k! Your a fool or a sucker if you pay that much for it. I mean it is a sweet car and I am a huge Honda enthusiast but I would never pay that much for it. My thoughts are around 8k that’s it, maybe MAYBE 10k

    All that effort for 140hp? I’m not one of those people who think everything should be extremely overpowered, but that’s just sad. Should have k20/K24 swapped or at the very least massaged some more power out of that b18. AND he wants 25k? One could score an absolutely pristine E30 touring and do a clean S50 swap for that much and have a much sweeter, faster, and fun to drive classic wagon.

    I agree that there is no way it is worth $25k

    Nice work but at the same time… they could have made that car much more desirable by not going so wild with the paint and interior. I love green but that is so over the top.

    To me it ruins a perfectly sweet wagon that would have sold for more if restored to original.
