Honda failed experiments?

Can you name other Honda experiments that failed except the XL250S 23 inch wheel?

Believe it or not..!!!

my dad and i bought a '79 Honda Civic for about 300 bones...
with the hondamatic transmission..
so there is Park, Reverse, Neutral, 2nd, 1st..
no D for drive, nothing, just two gears...haha

we welded a trailer hitch to the bumper and pulled a 4x12 steel trailer with TWO four-wheelers at 80 mph...!!!!
