VX Federal version or California version

Clean

Original paint

Low Miles

Will consider CX too.

Will consider other colors.

Will consider Automatic Transmission.

Will consider any mileage.

Will consider minor rust or car that had prior minor rust as long as

THIS IS NOT SPAM!

I highly suggest using www.AutoTempest.com

It's the only way i have found to search all of craigslist where you can find rare cars for sale like a CRX HF, or VX. If you select all cities together you get the most recent postings of cars for sale. In addition it has searches of ebay, autotrader etc.

Craigslist has lot of good cars for sale with lower demand than ebay. You do have have locals and people who are specifically looking for these high mpg cars. You put a VX or Geo metro on ebay and prices get inflated and you have people DEMANDING their Metros go for 3k+.

Ive been using it to find an HF or VX within a 250 mile range. If distance or money is no problem you will find "the right car." I'm still looking but maybe i'll just save for a high mileage 1st gen insight. I'm just a forum member who is also looking for the "right" car. Again this is not spam.

You also have to be savvy about stock engines and identify cars with the vin number. Its hard to find a Crx HF with a stock engine and not molested! Some VX's have engine swaps as well. By and far, a VX is a rare car even on craigslist EXCEPT in California. If you live in California you are so lucky to have so many Hf's and Vx's. EG HB is a VX right?

That and you have to be diligent searching autotempest, good mileage nice looking cars at the right price are gone in days. Goodluck!

I find that they tend to be gone in a matter of hours, the last one I saw was gone in less then 3 hours.
Best bet is to make sure you know what a stock engine compartment looks like (Vtec valve cover with the spark plugs to the front) small air intake, half size radiator, 5 wire o2 sensor right next to the dip stick.
Then keep searching, if you see one on the street leave a note on it, that is how I bought one of my civics and my parents have bought vehicles that way as well.

CRX HF is virtually unobtanium. I drove one today, seller was asking 2600. Wrong transmission, deceptive about oil consumption, left rear lower control arm mount bent bad enough to break unibody spot welds. Dents all over, seats trashed.

Not rusty though.

Southern states are best where there is little snow, inland from oceans so no salt spray, and stay away from roads that get a lot of salt in the winter.

Impossible indeed.
CRX's in general, even in the northeast tend to have zero rust, be in great condition and have low mileage swapped engines for 1.2-1,500. The only redeeming factor is those teenagers keep Crx bodies in immaculate condition. I believe theyre called Ricers (Racers?) whatever that means.

That site is pretty awesome! While most of those pages I had found on my own, the search function is somewhat different and it definitely has helped me search more thoroughly and faster than before.

Still haven't found the "right" one, but have lots of patience and I know I will find it.

I appreciate any and all help and will gladly pay a finders fee when one comes along that I buy. Have a great day and I thank you all for your help and consideration!
