    What would you spend your $445,000 on? An NSX-R or something else?

      Ridiculous. You buy an Acura NSX, same year, change badge, seating... done. $75 000 You can have one for the price of a brand new middle to top tier model muscle car Challenger, Charger, Mustang, Camaro, and a Corvette. Considering the NSX is an old 5 second car...... everyone of those cars mentioned is closing in on 3 seconds, some have surpassed that. Save your money, or make the same amount go further atleast. Buy a new car.

    Nice effort on the video but a lot of hyperbole here. For one I own a 97 Spar yellow I bought new and has 66k on the clock. It's in great shape, but trust me no one is going to give me what I paid for it. I'm active in NSX community yes your going to pay because there aren't many around but if you are patient you can pick one in good condition for 50/65k. Also be prepared to pay for upkeep everythijg comes from Japan and spares are getting pricey. A electronic power steering module for run you 3k and a slave valve for the clutch $600. They are getting long in the tooth for maintance is going to cost you. Obviously I love the car but no one is coming up to me at car shows and races offering me even 90k. He picked and extreme example.

    Well, I never ran across a Japanese car company or model I liked. However, I remember that in the winter of 1990-1991 I decided I wanted to get me one of these NSXs. This was at a showroom in Alexandria, Virginia. I was ready to pay the full sticker price -- and was shocked to find out they actually wanted me to pay $12,000 over MSRP sticker price. Walked out of the showroom in disgust and never as much as looked at a Japanese car again. In my view, these original NSXs look extremely dated, with a typical 1980s design. No way would any of them worth over $30K used today (July 2021). These "collectors" are just squandering away their money, in my view. After all, this is still only a Honda. Which is definitely NOT a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, McLaren, Königsegg, and so on.

      Sir Humphrey Davy, the scientist that originally named Alumium/Alumina, eventually went on to use the phrase Aluminum, which is noted in an 1812 lecture of his. At the same time, other scientists began using the phrase Aluminium (namely W. Simpkin in 1811). Eventually, both phrases began to get accepted but as time went on, the British Science Community began to standardize Aluminium, with the North American scientists adopting Aluminum. The ACS adopted Aluminum in 1925 but the IUPAC standardized Aluminium, so its universally accepted as just a regional accent difference.
