Not quite... I had a '78 Accord hatchback that I bought from my neighbor for $700 in 1986. At some point in its history, somebody had used it as the trailer car behind their RV and driven it through plenty of snowy winters. The car was rusted within an inch of its life and then somebody else had the audacity to give it an authentic Earl Scheib paint job... in turquoise . Oh, did I mention they painted OVER the rust?

Cosmetic issues aside, the car was indestructible. After a minor tuneup, it ran like a champ and because Honda's CVCC system ran so clean, it had no cat and ran on LEADED gasoline! It used to cost only $7 to fill the tank.
