I had a '76. First year Accords were built.

It had a manual choke and plenty o' rust. I spent the better part of one wet, chilly Sunday patching in new floor sections only to have it rust around the patches.
The timing belt broke one Friday, when the there was six inches of snow on the ground, the temps were in the teens, and the car was five miles from home at a friend's house. Got it back together, but didn't know that the CVCC engine was interference-type. So, zero compression on cylinders two and three from bent valves.
It ran, but had no power.
Another terminal case, but the wrecker had to come and get it.
