Curbside Outtake: 1st Gen and Current Generation Accords- A Growth Industry


I spotted this first generation Honda Accord last week, while I was piloting a 2014 EX-L four door. Since I found an open space adjacent to this ’76 or ’77, I decided to take a couple of shots demonstrating how the Accord changed over the years (the dark grey car is the newer model).

Perhaps I should have used a ’14 coupe for the comparison, to better match door count. However, both cars represent the most popular body style of their respective model years.


This front shot does not provide quite as dramatic a contrast, since the ’76 isn’t lined up as tightly on the curb as the newer car. Still, I think these two pictures will provide ample comment fodder. Post away!
