So pretty. Can't see under it, but that goofy looking sedan has double wishbone suspension at all four corners, and was co-engineered by the guys running the Honda F1 program of the same era.

There's a community of enthusiasts into old Hondas:

thisoldhonda.org

I can't visit that site too regularly. Way, way, way too much temptation. Tons of old, incredibly cool Hondas in decent shape for cheap, cheap prices, sold by people who love them.

So cool.

My dad traded in a Buick 225 Park Ave for one of those back in 1980 except his was burgundy and it surprised the heck out me.  At 14~15 yo I used to sneak it out in the middle of the night.  Compared to the Buick, the Honda was peppy and fun to drive with the 5-spd stick.
