First we drool over the amazing Honda Coupe 9 in the Fantasy Garage. Then we spot one on eBay and we figure, well, that's the last we'll see of that car. But wait! Now we hear from Junkman (the madman behind the Pontiac 400-powered Deutsch-Bonnet and the Chevy 400-powered Porsche 356) that he has obtained that very same 1971 Honda Coupe 9! We're hoping to get more photos soon, but make the jump to hear what he has to say about the car.
In Junkman's own words:
The Coupe 9 just came today and I'm very excited! The engine generates an incredible sound-half dirt bike, half Ferrari (I guess, more properly, 1/3 Ferrari). Not loads of power but totally useful with plenty of torque. I drove the last ten miles using the hand brake only, so I didn't push it hard but I can tell it will be a blast to drive. My younger employees, who don't look twice when I drive a twelve cylinder Lincoln to work, went crazy over this scruffy little Honda. It will be interesting to see the reaction of the tuner crowd when an old guy shows up with it at one of their events in the spring...
