Well i was yet another victim of the red light runners. I was crossing a 6 lane intersection and by the time i was at about the 5th lane, this Volvo was going so fast that he wound up in front of my car for me to t-bone him. He was at least 5-8 seconds past the red light. So he got everything put on him. But it was my first car and i had everything running perfect on it and then this... Depressing, but not the end of the world, if i was a little bit further forward it would have hit the passenger side and my friend would have been in the hospital with serious injuries. So all is well. Waiting for an insurance check to go look for another car... And i put a picture of it before all this happened after detailing one day.

1. If this is an April Fools joke then that's mean, ha.

2. If this is real- Dang man! That sucks a lot... Seriously though, you guys could've so easily gotten creamed by that Volvo if you were a second faster across that intersection, gah, good thing you guys're okay, and that it all got pinned on that person.

How'd they end up?

Well i don't know what car will be next. I am considering another Honda since i liked this one so much... But i won't find one in the condition mine was in, i mean i kept it like brand new all the time. And the Volvo driver came out fine. He was actually the brother of a kid i go to school with. I had seen his brother driving the car to school and you kind of recognize it after you hit it dead on.... But all is well. i will let you guys know what the insurance company has to say.

I know, i loved the car, i want another one in a v6 for sure, but to find one is amazing condition is hard. My grandma is going to let me drive her 98 accord ex for a little till the insurance kicks it into gear and writes me a BIG check. :)

My condolences, '96 was a good year. As others have written, your good health is most important.

If you go with another Accord, I'm sure you'll find one you like. Good luck!

Omg a 6th gen v6 ex-l in good condition. I looked for a White one in my area hard b4 i got my 8th gen. I'm in LOVE with the NSX style brake lights...lol. Post links of what you've found so far out there if interested in any feedback b4 you buy. In the end though, it's your decision.
