Junkyard Gem: 1983 Honda Accord Sedan With 411,794 Miles

Junkyard Gem: 1983 Honda Accord Sedan with 411,794 Miles

I've learned that finding discarded vehicles with astronomical figures showing on their odometers can be very difficult. Most manufacturers stuck with five-digit odometers well into the 1980s and even the 1990s, which rules out a majority of potential high-mile candidates right off the bat. With more recent vehicles, electronic digital odometers won't display unless you power up the main ECU— theoretically possible in a junkyard, but a real hassle. The most likely old cars to rack up interstellar mileage (Mercedes-Benz diesels) are also among the first to have their instrument clusters harvested by boneyard-prowling eBay sellers. Fortunately, Honda began installing six-digit odometers around 1981, and so today's Junkyard Gem (found last winter in a Denver car graveyard) can share its very impressive final odo reading with us.

Attention to Honda and longroof fans alike. And frankly, anyone who is into the rad era of automobiles. There is a 1986 Honda Accord AeroDeck for sale on Bring a Trailer right now, and it's very much rad. 

For the uninitiated, the Accord AeroDeck is a shooting brake from Honda that wasn't sold here. While we made do with the Accord sedan and coupe body styles in the '80s, some lucky folks on the other side of the ocean were cruising around in these stylish and super utilitarian Hondas. They weren't cruising around all that quickly, though.

Woman Test-drives A New 2019 Honda Accord — And Keeps On Going

Woman test-drives a new 2019 Honda Accord — and keeps on going

Typically when shopping for a new car, the song and dance at a dealership is pretty standard, including a salesperson riding shotgun on your test drive. But one dealership let a prospective buyer go out by herself, and, well, she didn't come back. The Oakland Press reports that police are on the hunt for a woman who took an all-new, gray 2019 Honda Accord on a test drive June 15 from Page Honda in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. After she disappeared into the day, the dealership reported it stolen.

Presumably the dealership copied her driver's license and other identifying information, assuming it's genuine, of course. Police are asking anyone with information to contact Bloomfield Township police at 248-433-7755. The Honda Accord has long endured a reputation for being one of the most stolen cars in America, though not as much in recent years — and not usually like this. The Nissan Altima was listed as the most stolen car as of a 2017 study, according to driving-tests.org.
