457 Mile 1977 Honda CB550K3

First-Generation Gem: 1980 Honda Prelude

Coming fairly late to the game, at least in order to compete with the Toyota Celica, this 1980 Honda Prelude nonetheless came locked and loaded and ready for the fight. Maybe that’s too strong of a description for such… more»

Worth $249,000? 1970 Nissan Laurel 2000GX

It’s hard to argue with having “2000” in the name of your car, your movie, your tv show, or anything else, really. Scotty G2000… hmm… I like that. It was futuristic in those days, back when everyone thought that… more»
