90 Accord vs  20V?
Let's go back 2 years in the used car market.
1990 Accord-135k one owner in real nice shape costing 5k and acceptable (?)
problems include the distributor housing, throttle positioner, clutch, oil
seals after 15k, speed sensor, upper radiator. etc etc.
1990 20V-150k one owner in real nice shape costing 5k and no real problems
The Honda has been a financial nightmare with the only advantage being the
fuel consumption.
Do the math
