      Eggzackly. Of the 300 or so Preludes I've worked on over the years, the worst ones for simple maintenance were the 4WS and SH cars.

      The 4WS is a whole different ball park.
      I shudder thinking about doing an alignment on one of those.

      In that case, what would you consider the best model trim for a 5th generation Prelude?

      There are only two trims. Base and SH. The base offers the same power but with available automatic with our version of Tiptronic. The auto transmissions weren't as bad as some people have made them out to be, but our manual transmissions cannot be matched for smooth shifting and short throw.

      Ahahah, I love the way you do business. I’ve heard good things from the manuals and intend to stick to that. My only grievance is the sharper look of the SH that isn’t present on base.

      Worst comes to worst, I just buy some of those bits and pieces.

      Chin spoiler, painted side-skirts, and wing are all easy to get. The wheels are a little harder to find though. Otherwise the same exterior.

      I 99.999% agree with the only exception being the 5 and 6 speed transmissions on the NA through NC Miatas (I haven't driven an ND), which are the gold standard. Otherwise, everything else < Honda, and the 5th gen Prelude with the MT was a truly amazing experience.

      Wrong.


      The 6 speed in my MSM is actually a downgrade from the regular 5.

      I was thinking of going aftermarket with the wheels anyway. Something that looks alright but doesn’t attract attention.

      Thanks for the general advice man

      Yeah, after driving a 10th gen SI around a little bit, I must say that Honda makes a seriously great transmission. The only niggle I could find is while shifting into 5th and 6th gear. Aside from that, solid transmission all around

      It sold very quickly after I spoke with the seller. My guess is he had a personalized plate on it that he wanted to keep, so he put it on retention and slapped a $13 8XXXXXXX replacement on it.

      Exception that proves the rule. The MSM was the weird rainman cousin of the Miata family; interesting and occasionally brilliant, but ultimately no one wanted to have anything to do with it.

      When it was new. Let me try another pop-culture movie reference from the 80s... The MSM is like the Buckaroo Banzai of cars; a critical and popular failure when it debuted, but time, context, and shifting tastes have been kind.

      For the record, I was an NB owner before the MSM came out and then an NC owner right after. I was active with the local Miata owners group, and SOLO II'd with them every month. I really, really wanted the MSM to be amazing, but it seemed like a bit of a rushed effort. Same with the MSP, though it was a little more compelling, but that might just be my personal bias.

      It's definitely not perfect, the factory tune (that doesn't come on boost until 4500 RPM) and the weird gearing would be bad for autocross. And it would have been better with the 5 speed. But I plan to address the turbo system, and it's one of the easiest ways to get into a quick Miata.





      (just ignore that the NC has similar 0-60 times.)

      Is this another radwood taxed vehicle?

      $14k for a 1988 Cavalier Z24 with 19k miles

      https://harrisburg.craigslist.org/ct...921651212.html





      Edit: Just found this 4 door 1992 Geo with 56k miles for $900 . If anyone wants this as a "radwood" car let me know and I can take a look at it for you (if you aren't in the DMV).

      ^

      FWIW- the 80's Cavalier had a much nicer interior than the 90s Cavalier.

      Something like this for cheap- even tho obviously not mint or low miles (and is a deathtrap)- makes more sense as a radwood fun car.

      Classified forum rules require that you post a price. If you don't know what to ask, they suggest that you search past FS threads.

      So, when your item sells, please don't edit out your price and description when you mark it "SOLD". Rather, edit to show selling price.
