I cashed in part of my 401k to diversify and invest in more #goldenerahonda. Does that upset you guys? It's a 98 5-speed with 1 prior owner and it's the ****. I love it. Definitely a future collector car and rising in value.

Had a 97', had to sell because of some funky repair on the sun roof the previous owner did. But good car.

You used to argue that only Si’s and Type R’s were GEH.

No. Most people who cash in their retirements use it for stupid reasons so not surprising.

Definitely a steal. I moved on it quick knowing if I didn't it would be gone. Drives and handles like it's a 40k mile car....seriously

Ive looked on and off for a nice one seriously for 7 or so years. The nice ones are automatic. The manuals are usually beat or hacked. Then you have the rusty ones. This one ticked the boxes. Well kept, maintenance recordz, 5 speed, and no rust. I had to buy it.

So is the 401k part a joke? Or did you really?

How are the autos on these though? I mean if you just wanted a reliable daily, would it check the boxes of being solid mechanically?
I've also been looking at these over the last year or so...but again, all the mint ones are auto. I'm not against that totally just because I daily a CRV with ZERO *****. It'd have to be more fun than the CRV even with an auto.

I don't hear many bad things about the Autos personally. It's the v6 cars that eat trannys. So it might be fine. I feel you on the crv, I have a 98 2wd auto crv as well...dog **** slow....buy hey, it's got a picnic table so that's kinda cool.
