5k: Occam’s Razorback: 2000 Honda Prelude Twin Engine

The constant discussion of which is better, rear-wheel-drive or front-wheel-drive in slippery conditions is sort of ridiculous when you consider how much better all-wheel-drive can be.  Sort of like residents of San Diego and Los Angeles arguing that one eats more granola than the other when San Francisco is only a short drive north.  The problem with conventional all-wheel-drive is where to put the engine and how to distribute power when slippage occurs, so clearly the best solution for any traction issue is a twin engine car.  Sometimes the best solution isn’t the most simple, but it is still the bestest.  Find this  2000 Honda Prelude Twin Engine here on eBay currently bidding for $6,100 reserve-not-met with 1 day to go, located in Brush Prairie, WA.  Tip from Rod.

The fifth generation Honda Prelude comes with a strung out little 4-banger that won’t make much more power unless you start adding forced induction and the you just go through front tires.  Obviously, the solution to this problem is to add another engine/transaxle setup out back.

This is one of the few photos provided by the seller that appears to be the rear engine while it is being installed, but it would be nice to see the finished product all buttoned up to understand if there is room for a golf bag.
