I would get the prelude just because im a fan of honda. I drive a 92 Integra and hondas are very dependable and pretty cheap to fix and i know how to fix them and a lot of people know how to fix them. i dont really know much about supra but they are pretty expensive to work on in the long run you are probably better off with the Lude because you can replace the whole motor and tranny in it with one from japan for under $1500. HOWEVER the supra will be faster but you can make the prelude faster. the prelude will also handle better UNLESS the suspension has been ****ed with if it has all factory suspension then go with the prelude.

I would say neither and this is why:

1. I wouldn't buy the Supra because it has a motor swap. Just sounds like bad news.

2. I wouldn't buy the Honda because it shouldn't be leaking oil with 178,000 miles on it. Sounds like it is a problem and someone is trying to pass it on to someone else.

I would try to find another Honda Prelude that is in better shape. Hope this helps.

Both are bad news, with leaky oil on the Honda and the Toyota is not original engine. But if you must choose one, I would go with the Toyota.
