Honda has been able to afford to give a glimpse of its upcoming ninth-generation Accord Coupe via a concept previewed in Detroit. But while many of their fans might be dazzled by the large chrome wheels, a well chiseled front bumper with an LED-crowned air intake, and topped-off with dual exhausts integrated into the rear bumper, well, don’t be deceived so easily. 
 
The basic lines from current eight-generation Accord are still present albeit with a few nips and tucks here are there. Honda’s conservative design approach is not that surprising as the Accord is selling relatively well; so why mess with a tried and proven formula? Still, we would need to wait for the final production version to be able to judge it properly.

Only a handful of people in this world ever manage to drive their cars so far that they'd see the day the odometer flips over. But one man from Norway, Maine, USA, gears up for a personal challenge to clock in one million miles (or 1.6 million kilometers) on his 1990 Honda Accord. Joe LoCicero or Million Mile Joe as everyone now knows him, is an insurance claims adjuster who logs around 62,500 miles each year, four times more than the average American driver's 14,000 miles/year, by driving from one Honda dealer to another. “I feel like a human ping-pong ball crossing the state,” said Joe. 
 
The pursuit to reach one million miles began when Joe's Accord reached 300,000 miles. Since then, he started keeping track of his milage and now has 661 photos of his car's odometer. And unlike other record attempts that deliberately take time off to spend months on the road, this undertaking is achieved solely based on Joe's occupational daily driving routine.
