scored some vx parts for cheap ::)

The world is funny... a month ago I bought a mirror block from a guy for a total of $5. Yesterday I made a decent drive to get some parts and it turned out to be the same fellow! Couldn't believe it.
Anyway, he sold me the full dash, rear view mirror, plastic area that includes cup holder and shift boot, all accessory switches to left of steering wheel, intermitant wiper stalk and ecu and the dome lamp for $20. I'm really happy because the interior is looking great now.

Wow. How are you hunting? CL? eBay? Endless hours online? Just lucky? Nice finds!

I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

I use Craigslist, eBay, a local site called vadriven.com and just browse the endless Honda forums on the web.

There are still some good deals out there.. Alot of the "go fast" guys think the VX stuff is "useless"...

A buddy of mine just picked up a VX swap locally for less than $200... Crazy talk..

I found a thread once, that was 4 months old, offering a vx engine with intake and exhaust manifold, distributor and an exedy clutch with 5k miles on it for $150! I called the guy and he had it still... then I found out the auto correct changed his NY address to VA... when I was leaving and confirmed address he was like what the hell? He ended up giving the clutch away and scraped the entire engine. (Believe me I tried getting him to let me find it a home with someone on here) he said his dad wanted it out of the garage that day since I had to cancel... would a been so sweet to have a spare engine to work on
