93 Accord Headshot

A few years ago, I sold my favorite car: a 93 Honda Accord. I hated selling him—not only because he was the “Black Pearl” of the Fourth Generation of Accords, but because he happens to be one of the most famous cars in America. I mean it: YOU ARE ABOUT TO BE AMAZED by all the times you’ve seen him in movies and TV shows and didn’t realize you were looking at my ’93 Honda Accord.

Here are screen captures from some of his greater moments on the screen (in no particular order other than comedic heightening):

He got his start in Universal Studios’s KNIGHT RIDER stunt show!93 Accord (Knight Rider)

Moving up, he was featured in this, the re-release of the classic BEN HUR!

Here he is in his first leading role opposite Tobey Maguire in SPIDERMAN!93 Accord (Spiderman)

His agent at AAA landed him this role in the original x-MEN! (So serious!)

He’s only in it for a minute, but what a minute to have on your demo reel: in Peter Jackson’s KING KONG!

This one’s exciting. I could not believe he actually got screen time right next to Tom Hanks in the DA VINCI CODE!

He’s the only Honda Accord that can list LORD OF THE RINGS on his IMDB page (playing two different roles: ONE GOOD…

…and ONE EVIL!

He was so good in Fellowship, they brought him back for THE TWO TOWERS!

This one, he wouldn’t shut up about for weeks, seeing as how SOUTH PARK is his favorite show.

And most recently, look at him showing off here, racing down the streets in last year’s FAST AND FURIOUS 4! (I didn’t even know he could drive!)

If you see him around, tell him his old manager Mike says “Hey!”

    @Wade My old friend, Wade! Ah, the Dasher exists now only… in legend. And probably in the San Luis Auto Salvage yard. But mostly… in legend. (Good to hear from you, buddy!)
