'03 Accord Sedan photos

These 3 photos were posted to alt.autos.honda. A participant of the http://beta.vtec.net/forums/forum?forum_id=3531 was kind enough to e-mail them to me. It's not clear whether they truly are Accords or not, but I'd say the story seems reasonably plausible.

Here is the text from the original message posted in the newsgroup:

Here's the prototype of the '03 Accord 4 door. I saw four of them together
at a hotel. They all had Ohio MFG tags on them, and the japanese engineers
wouldn't tell me what type of car they were. All insignias were removed,
but judging by the pics of the two door, here is your four door.

The Japanese men got very irate when they saw my camera! Hey, its a free country, right?








And remember these? (from http://www.vtec.net/news/news-item?news_item_id=5559). Very similar. Check out the cutlines, trunk shape, and wheel arches.
