Hi to all. I am glad a few of these little beasts still remain on the roads. I purchased my brand new CRX-HF in 1985 as a way to establish credit after having graduated from college. I did not qualify for the SI model. 2009 I still own it, but now it is stuffed in my car garage. With 135,000 miles it still drives strong. I never got into racing, so it is as it left the dealer. Someone stole the spoiler and I never got to get another. Now my 16 year old son has his eyes on it. It is not registered, and needs body work and a paint job. I like to sell it but can't get the will to do it. I hope Honda would go back to its roots and bring back this little peppy affordable car.

I bet anything by now 2011, there are very few of these little cars left intact.

I purchased my 1985 CRX-HF brand from a Honda dealer for about 4 or 5K. It was somewhat a reluctant purchase, I really wanted the SI model (Black or Red), but the bank did not want to extend me a first loan with a higher price car?! Well, that said, my dad gave me the down and I drove away in my new car. Darn! Did I ever again drive slow anywhere I went? Hell no!

I am now 50 and still own that little devil. It is still stock, I have never changed any component or done any modification to it. It's got 137K and has resided in our garage for the past 9 years.

I am getting ready to totally restore it (however no one sells body parts). As a child, my now 18 year old son rode in it every time I drove it, he loved it, now he is again hoping to ride in it as its new owner... Well we'll see about that, maybe as a college graduation gift.

Yeah, I'm very interested in the engine swap. Any info you could send me would be greatly appreciated.

I've got an 85 CRX HF as well, but it's carburated, and I'm going to pull it and put it on a stand, because basically I've not seen too many of those cars that are carburated, so I'm going to totally redo that motor, and kinda toy around with souping up the carbed motor. But in the meantime, I was thinking of trying to put in an easy swap for the most horsepower I can get, and which motor that would be that would bolt up conveniently? So again, any opinion or info you can give me would be great...
