Thanks everyone. The car now has Wisconsin blue plates (collectors) my insurance is for light use, I said under 2,000 miles a year. I'll keep running it on Sundays when the weather is nice. That's foam and bondo and house paint around the wheel wells. WI is tough on cars, most won't make ten years in daily use, if driven in the winter with the salt. Parked under the tress with a tarp over it, waiting for Spring. Her pretty grey hat has been removed and is stored in a shed.

Nope but she did drive to the 500, also some Indycar at Iowa Speedway:
Note front row in the infield, Marge the Honda is special.
Indycar at The Milwaukee Mile:
last race she was there.
Going home with the Little Guy, yes the car had a trailer hitch, I didn't do much hauling but I'm pretty sure it's the original clutch. I never replaced it?
Road America near station 4A, oh look, unfinished bodywork filler before it was painted green. Fall 2012
And for years, Marge was a regular at corner 3 flagging station, Road America. (GoPro on a stick = NOT a drone which would be illegal there and pretty much everywhere by now)
She's Marge because there's a Marge Simpson on the dash to protect the car.
INDYCAR, NASCAR/CWTS/Xfinity, SCCA, IMSA, Lights, Atlantics, Grand-Am, SVRA, Pro-Mazda, Porsche cup races, the complete list is much longer.
I did write to a Texas Honda dealer again, I'm willing to settle on an newer Accord EX four door, but it has to have a manual transmission. I keep watching eBay but the last 1997 wagon that kept coming up was listed as a stick, but had an automatic VIN number. Guy relisted it wrong like that?
I suppose if someone was dedicated they could get an Automatic and have it converted to stick? I wonder what that costs...
