i recently totalled my ek coupe and the crx looks to be the answer to all of my problems.

i'm hoping to buy my friends awd talon, but if that falls through (will most likely) i'm hoping to get a 88-91 crx, the model doesn't really matter to me because i'll be swapping eventually anyway. anway, is there anything i should look for when i'm looking to buy a crx? i know it's not a very specific question but i'm not looking for specific answers.

I think the HF would be better for a swap since it's already MPFI, the DX is DPFI. HF is lighter than the DX too. Either way an SI would be the best. You get a nicer interior, sunroof, tilt steering, bucket seats, and you don't have to worry about getting new axels and eventually new brakes/wheels if you swapped in, say, a B16A.

If you don't mind me asking, what happened to the EK?

you're right I am sorry, I meant the Si or the HF try and stay away from the DX if you can.

I just bought another CRX. I saw it for sale and it was in very very good condition and I couldnt stand the thought of it being sold to some ricer punk so I got it. It's an HF with low mileage. Needs a little TLC and some cleaning but other than that it's a great work car. I'll be keeping the stock motor for the gas saving purposes but will be upgrading the suspension to make my work commute more fun :)







And of course here is my other Si model :)



There was a black DX that I was gonna buy but by the time I emailed the guy he had already sold it. I am tired of finding red crx's.....

I can see maybe having 2 CRX's for a couple different purposes, but what do you do with more than that?

I would have bought the black one instead of the red one but it was too late.

One CRX(HF) is gonna be for work only...daily driver.

The other is going to weekend pleasure car.
