do you have any PANTIES

You could say that were anyone in the market for one, any purchase would be...



An Impulse buy.

Mine was definitely an Impulse buy. Hahaha. $400, I couldn't pass it up.

It's an '84 crx. The first year ever made. The 85-86 models had slightly different headlights and front fascia. Also, the si model came out in '85. All of the '84s were carb'd.

Crap, I was off a year. I had an 84 CRX as well. It's been awhile since I've had it though.

I'd like to toss my Turbo X into the ring. One of only 2,000 produced, and one of only ~600 imported to the US. It is a slushbox (feh) sedan, so that makes it roughly one of 210 in 2008 - and probably nearing 1 of 100 still on the road, since they tend to get totaled out for minor issues these days.

One of these days it's getting a transmission swap too, because the stock Renault-sourced one won't tolerate much more than the 400 hp you can comfortably tune it up to via chip mods.

The V8 turbo was still using the Renault box?

The Holloway Performance upgrade kit for it seems well regarded, though.

Yup. Now the only trick is to budget for it before they run out and tell me they're never making more.

Could you turn a Porsche G50 upside-down, which is what some kit cars do, or convert something like a Subaru STI 'box to "front" wheel drive and use that?

I'd imagine adapting an inherently stronger gearbox to fit would cost about the same as uprating the existing one (Renault UN1, yes?), and you can always later uprate that.

Looks like I'm gonna have to; guy wrote back and said they're all long gone.

Oh well, he was just licensing a Derek Bell design, and his only advantage was being domestic, so there's still options.

According to a 2011 post on rotary vehicles registered in the USA, I own one of 67 1974 RX-4s still on the road and not scrapped/hiding in a barn/race-only.

And that's all body styles combined, though the data is only for sedans and wagons (and mine is a coupe). I can't find any current data or original importation figures.

If you want to play the paint/interior/options game, mine may well be the only RX-4 of its kind left in the US (I won't be enough to assume worldwide).

Forest Green exterior, matching Forest Green interior, along with all optional equipment (AM/FM radio, A/C, and [ugh] an automatic transmission).

The old girl even has a manual choke.

If we ever end up at the same Goon meet or something, could I get a ride?

Can't imagine there's many of these about. 1962 Commer PA with autosleeper conversion and sliding doors. Probably the favourite of my cars at the minute.

With the various paint colours, is it a Commer Chameleon?
