In the 1980's when Honda was at the top of its game and Toyota was stuck playing second fiddle, Honda made cars that never tried to be beautiful, never tried to be fast and never tried to be sporty, and thank heaven, never, ever tried to be gimmicky.

The only thing that Honda wanted was for them to be functional and the best cars in their class. And it's funny, but they also turned out to be beautiful, reasonably quick and sporty.

Now that Honda has lost its focus on engineering, and is now selling us cars like the pointless Civic Si, watered-down RSX and the ungainly Accord, while claiming they're sporty, beautiful and fast.

I want to buy a car from the GREAT Honda Motor Co. that I remember from the 1980's, that directed the rest of the auto industry instead of following it.
