oldest Accord ever?

Via Autoblog: 1976 [tag]Honda[/tag] [tag]Accord[/tag] may be the oldest still running

The Goat [Johnson’s GTO] had been eating a hole in Johnson’s pocket because of the era’s high gas prices, so he picked up one of them new fuel-efficient 1976 Honda Accords…

But what I find to be the real “point” here is that not only did he go for the Accord because of fuel-economy but then he kept the sucker around and running as long as humanly possible.  Cut down on all the other nastiness associated with the high turn-over rates in automotive ownership: disposal, [tag]sprawl[/tag], etc.

Or so it would be if Johnson did not own “several other vehicles”.  Oh well.
