Default Hello from Australia

I've recently come across what must be quite a rare early Gen.2 saloon.
Chassis number is KA7 1010817
Build date in May 1991.
It appears to be a JDM model (imported from Japan), unlike anything we had here from a Honda dealer. It's most striking feature is the 'gold' trim, which is even found on the exhaust tips and on all badging and window surrounds and door handles.
It even has a rear, yes rear air conditioning unit for the rear passengers. The outlet for the cold air is found on the rear parcel shelf. Rear seat passengers also have heated seats along with heated front seats. Controls for the rear A/C and radio etc. are in the rear arm rest between the seats. The rear seats also recline ie the seat base slides forward reclining the rear squab. The drivers instrument cluster is slightly different to our domestic cars.

Cannot upload photos as whilst they are WELL under the 100KB size requested, I still get an 'exceeded your quota' message!

Welcome. It is best to upload pictures from a host like photobucket, then copy URL link to that photo and make a new post on the Gallery section. The new member section will not let you post pictures.

Yes the new member section doesn't allow picture posting as James said. I understand all cars going into New Zealand are JDM imports and thought Australia was the same. I learned something new. Yes that 91 you came across was the top line Legend for the Japanese market. Most of us would LOVE to see the pictures as those options were no where near offered in the United States. The rear a/c (which I understand the unit takes up a good bit of trunk space) is something I've never seen in person nor even pictures of now that I think about it. There are a few here that have modified their cars with rear reclining seats.

Sounds like a great car! I/ we want to see pictures just to hurt our U.S. feelings with the best goodies we can't have. Chaka, I've seen the rear AC system in person. James has the system & is installing it but not sure if he's finished yet.

Yes I've heard he has it installed and working (through the dark circuit contacts I have Muah!). I also know whom at one point he was trying to get that version headliner and I suppose based on comments rear deck lid cover from some time ago. I do know if James wants it and regardless of it being rare or not James GETS IT! He is a man after the Mad Scientists own heart!
