Prelude, Mk IV
I did not think to mention in yesterday's post that I added some script to the rear trunk lid. Aficionados of the Prelude are well aware that over the years from 1978 to 2001 there were five iterations of Prelude. The 1995 my dad bought was late in the fourth generation which ran from 1992-1996. Fans of the 'Lude generally refer to gen-1, gen-2, etc.
I wanted to recognize the version of Prelude dad's car was from, so I searched eBay and found a chrome script from a Ford LTD and mounted it below the Prelude name plate. A bit classier than Gen-4. I think.
I case you would like to be able to impress your friends with the depth of your knowledge of Preludes, here is a handy reference for each of the five generations.
Personally, I think that the third and fourth are the best looking. The third gen Prelude coincided with the last iteration of the classic Civic CRX and shared some performance options with it. But, the CRX aside, the best looking Prelude is gen-4, hands down. I find that many others share this view.

I am still trying new show venues to find those that provide the most effective exposure for my works.
