About “Old School CRX”

I had a 1986 CRX Si over the summer of '06. When I got it, the radiator support was bent back, but not very well. The hood and front fenders were trashed and the header panel was cracked.
I got a parts car with same color/specs as mine that had been sitting in field for 5 years. After we chased the snakes and mice out of it, I pulled the fenders, hood, header panel, moon roof, interior parts etc. for the new car and still managed to sell the leftovers for $250!
I sold to a kid from Vicksburg (MI). He (and Dad) will be changing the clutch and will be using it as a daily driver.
