On November 1, 2012, the first American built Honda car, a 1983 Accord sedan, rolled off the assembly line at Honda’s Marysville, Ohio plant. Honda had previously built motorcycles in Marysville, but this was the first time they built four wheel vehicles in North America. The actual first American Honda is usually on display at the Henry Ford Museum, parked between a 1950 Rambler convertible sedan and a 1914 JB Rocket cyclecar, not far from Mrs. Henry Ford’s personal Detroit Electric The car is on loan from Honda, who borrow it when they need it for publicity purposes so when Honda introduced the new Accord to the press back in January at the NAIAS the new car shared the stage with its great great grandfather.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
