    headgasket can be SO much more than just needing a headgasket.

    i'd avoid it

    thats what they all say.
    i bought my prelude for 680 dollars.
    it drove perfect when i first got it, then started having idling troubles now the tranny might be going out..
    ive already put about 800 dollars into, probably gonna put atleast another 5.
    but still under kbb value..
    make sure that atleast the cosmetics are in pristine condition, so if the engine does have problems, fixing it wont put you too far under, if at all.
