Where can I find a replacement owner's manual?

Dear Tom and Ray:


I just bought a used Honda Accord. The problem is that it came without an owner's manual. Do you know where I can get one?

TOM: This is a questions that continues to boggle us, Earl. All cars come with owner's manuals, right? But when you buy a used car, the owner's manual is always missing. Where do they go??

RAY: My theory is that there's some guy in Pueblo, Colorado who's recycling them and turning them into U.S. government pamphlets.

TOM: Anyway, Earl, there's a company called Helm Inc. that sells manuals for Honda, Chevy, Ford, Lincoln-Mercury, Cadillac, Pontiac, Isuzu, Mazda, and Acura. Their phone number is 1-800-782-4356. And you should be able to get an Accord manual from them for less than ten bucks.
