About “Farley”

(Disclaimer: The photo IS NOT THE ACTUAL CAR! I'm using one I found online to show what the car looked like.)

After I had my Pacer for a couple of years, I just got tired of poor performance and poor mileage in a car that looked like a bright red fishbowl and pretty much handled like one, too. The Chevy agency had just taken this Accord in trade, and since I had worked at a Honda dealer back when the car was new I was familiar with them and knew Iliked them. I managed to buy it on payroll deduction for a grand total of $1,000. Just try to buy a 5 year old, 60,000 mile, stick shift Honda with new inspection and nearly new tires for $1,000 today... Right, ain't gonna happen! Best of all, I sold the Pacer to a co-worker for $750, and it needed a clutch!

Specs for “Farley”

Just the basics for a 1980 Accord - a peppy 1751cc (as I recall) 4 cylinder with a 5-speed transaxle. I never formally timed it, but it was A LOT quicker than the Pacer it replaced, and 30mpg on an average tank of gas was just a bonus!

Factory Options for “Farley”

None that I know of. As far as I know, the AM/FM radio, remote trunk release, remote gas door release, and remote back door locks (all lever operated!) were all standard.

Mods for “Farley”

I polished it out, added a new set of trim rings to replace the originals that had a few curb scrapes, tinted the windows and laid down a set of pinstripes. That's it.
