My Brand New CRX HF

That's right. Just picked it up yesterday. Brand new 1989 CRX HF. 190,000 miles on it. Nearly stock with me being pretty much the 2nd owner. She needs a bit of work, but it should be a 60+ mpg car within a few weeks.

Not sure yet how extensively I'm planning on modifying it. Since it is almost 20 years old, I don't think I'll get too excited about "restoring" it into mint condition. Therefore... I might be up for some more radical designs. I'm thinking I would go half as far as the aerocivic, spend slightly more on it, but have it be a car that I like to look at. But, I don't want to get too excited about the aero mods until I actually start them.

As far as a VX swap, I'm in no hurry. After reading SVO's log about his swap, I don't think I want to go through the hassel, not as long as my current motor still works, that is.

The pictures are from the craigslist ad.

Yeah, very shiny headers. Brand new exhaust too. You can see your reflection in the muffler even...

There's also a special tailpipe (said he paid $550 for it) to make it sound like a big lawnmower.

Any takers on buying that from me?

I had a 1988 CRX HF back in the early 90's. I loved that car Sporty enough but great mpg's! I may need to begin looking for one myself. Most of the CRX's I've seen in Denver are pretty beaten and or have 400hp and a turbo with 20" wheels!

I'm not sure what I think of the air intake yet. I know my Saturn SL1 LOVES a hot air intake. Anybody know about the CRX? I have a feeling it might be tough finding a stock airbox and tube for the HF.

Great choice, looks pretty cherry from the pix.

Planning on rear skirts? A crx pulls em off well, looks like a oldschool Insight.

Have fun hitting 60+
