Unfortunately, if you're in Ontario (as your profile says), as soon as you take ownership, the car no longer has a "valid inspection" and is not street legal to drive.

Every time there's a transfer of ownership, the vehicle has to pass a mechanical/safety inspection before it can be plated in the new owner's name.

Hard to turn down a free CRX, though! If you're game for a project.

There is ONE CRX left in my little city, a last-gen year-round daily driver (I cringe when I think of what the salt is doing to its underbits).

Speaking of underbits, how's the rust on this one? Hard to be 100% sure from the vid, but it looks like there's some bondo on the passenger side wheel arch, and typical Honda rust on the driver's side.
