Floyd.

yes i agree with you on the OHC and let me say that the FE on the OHC AT is not bad at all. And yes even I know of a few OHC Vtec automatics. Only a handful were made

I really hated to let go of my OHC, even though type 1 and 1.3. I really had very good drives in that car. Best of all even though I pushed it, I still got greater FE than most small cars. And boy no need for the horn, just the honda snarl was enough for everybody to move aside. Hope my new ride will do better... I wished I could have kept it - it was still going quite strong. But really no point in keeping extra cars around.

That could be because Auto OHC's were only available on the 2nd generation i.e. Post-2000 models. The 1st generation OHC's did not feature an auto option.

Not officially, I would guess. Most likely they were made on special request.

Hey, welcome to the Honda club dude.

The interiors are awesome. The dual tone makes it look a lot more sophisticated than the regular dark grey.
