Honda, the first international automaker to build a car in America, celebrated its 25 anniversary November 1, 2007. The date marks a milestone that brought innovation to the U.S. auto industry and vaulted Honda to a leadership position. The 5,300 associates at Honda's Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio recently launched the eighth-generation Honda Accord at the plant. Shown here, a 1982 Honda Accord is inspected for quality at the plant. The Accord was the plant's first vehicle and it remains the plant's core product. Nearly 80 percent of all Honda and Acura vehicles sold in America are built at one of Honda's six auto plants in North America.
