Re: tranny question

Not particularly. Depends on where you are and how much you're willing to look.

Re: tranny question

see 5 speed trannys are easy to spot in new york, you can easily spot them if they have a bulge in the front, and a variable speed vibrator in their back pocket

Probably more an indication of how frustrating it is to drive a Prelude with a slushbox. The automatics had some problems, too. The combination is probably the popularity of swapping any non-functioning autobox for a 5-speed.
