Recognize!

What makes a car noteworthy? Is it the reliability? Styling? Fan base? Manufacturer? Country of origin? Price? Notoriety? Tradition? Awards?

If all of these are or some of these are your reasons for buying a Honda Accord, let me remind you of another reason…recognition. The proof is in the pudding, so let me give you some pudding.

My First Honda

Many, many, many, many moons ago, I wanted a 1987 Honda Prelude. I thought it was the coolest car…EVER! Did I get the Prelude…NO! Hold on! Hold on! Hold on! Some of you may not know what the Honda Prelude was, and some of you may know more than anyone could ever want to know, but it was my dream car! So my parents got me a Honda Accord. Nice car, but I was a Junior in high school (natch! now you know my age) and I wanted a cool car. Not something reliable. My compromise was something cool and reliable, i.e. a Honda Prelude.

Let me just say that it is true, it doesn’t matter what color or model you get at the dealership…once my parents were buying me a brand new 1987 Honda Accord off the show room floor, I sped around the parking lot like the spoiled brat you all probably think I was/am. And I loved that car for 8 months!

You see, I probably was a bit of a brat back then. But no matter, I worked really hard to save up enough money to have my parents match my savings and finally get me…wait for it….wait for it….a 1988 Honda Prelude! (Yes, my family is the customer car dealerships love to do business with.) So I ended up with a black on black, sunroof with a wind visor, luggage rack on the trunk, since the spoiler wasn’t out until the 1989 model, and the silver strip on the bottom of the door panels that said “Prelude.”  Ahhhhhhh…the memories. But more importantly, can you envision my sweet ride? She was a beaut. And that was the year I got my personal license plate that I still have to this day on my SUV. Sorry, I can’t give out that information…I don’t want to be hounded for autographs. Ha! Ha! Ha!

But seriously, I kept my Honda Prelude for 188,000 miles, and only traded her in for a 2004 Honda Accord because I needed a larger vehicle. I can honestly say that my 1988 Honda Prelude was ,and still is my favorite car. Was it because I worked hard for it? Was it because it was cool? Was it because it was a Honda? You tell me.
