Curbside Outtake: 1989 Honda Accord – Paint It Blue

This certainly isn’t a stock color, but someone decided to add a little zing to their old Accord. Since it’s my favorite color, I approve. And it turns out there’s a good reason for painting it blue.


These gen3 Accords are getting a bit scarce, even in Curbsidelandia. I did say “a bit”, so rest assured, there will be others around yet for the foreseeable future.

This is what Wikipedia says about blue: it often symbolizes serenity, stability, inspiration, or wisdom. It can be a calming color, and symbolize reliability. That last one is a new one for me. No wonder they painted it blue.
