Default 1985 Honda CRX

Been hunting around for a car for a while to ’play’ with. Wrecked the
front end of my Jeep cherokee and got it fixed, now its time to get
another car to drive more often and give the other back to the
parents.

Decided on a 1985 Honda CRX...just a plain factory build..nothing
special. Since im not really a ’deep’ car person, any help would be
appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

If you like wrecking cars, be careful with the CRX. On the Jeep the front
end might have been gone, on the CRX the radiator would be sitting on the
back seat...

Check the ads in the local newspaper. Some towns and almost all cities
usually have special booklets--in my town we have three--Photo Ad, Easy Ad
and Auto Trader. They may have different names in your town or city--get
them and hopefully you will find Honda CRX for sale. You may have to visit
the nearest city (if you live in or near a small town) to find the special
booklets.

It wasnt intentional. And perhaps i exagerated ’wreck’. I only backed
up at an angle, caused a pole base to cut in right infront of my front
left tire and rip off the bumper.

And yes, with a CRX, i will be careul. So many speed bumps and dips
and holes in the roads here. My Jeep can fly over them easily... a
CRX.. would scrape im assuming?

Look on Ebay motors. You may have to travel to pick it up and drive it home
or tow it or even have it shipped if you're willing to pay for that.

Not quite that bad, unless you have one of those "lowered because it's cool"
CRXs. The stock suspension is OK, yes, you are low on the ground, but it'll
handle most "normal" driving just fine.

Just keep your distance to other cars. In collisions, you loose (against
those dreadful SUVs at least).

Take care,
TomB

I hate cars that are lowered so far to the ground you can barely see
the air between them. There are alot of trucks and SUVs heres like
that. I wonder how they get around at all.

Do you think its possible to ’lift’ a Honda CRX a few more inches off
the ground, for a ’just in case’ factor?
