    I finalized the purchase tonight... here's how it breaks down:

    89 Civic CRX Si
    - SOHC ZC engine with mild port & polish
    - ZC transmission (super short gears) with OEM LSD (I tested it)
    - intake
    - DC 4-2-1 header
    - custom exhaust
    - short shifter
    - aftermarket (dunno brand) steering wheel
    - coilover sleeves on stock shocks

    It's black and has some body damage, but nothing major. Here are the extra parts I'm getting with it:

    All from 90 CRX Si:
    - transmission
    - all suspension.. struts, arms, rear disc brakes, front slotted rotors
    - rack & pinion assembly
    - 2 doors without glass (to fix dents)
    - hatch with glass
    - right rear quarter section (to fix dents)
    - rear bumper cover
    - tons more, I think I'm getting an extra DX engine too

    $1600. I paid him half today, and will pay half on title transfer and receipt of car and parts. I ran a CARFAX check on it, and everything came up clean except for one failed emissions test- but that was on the original engine. The only drawback is that I don't get the rims that are on it now, so he's looking into getting me some tires for my old wheels really cheap. I drafted up a contract and we have it all in writing with signatures and everything. He has one week to get it all together, rip out the stereo and rims, and bring it over to me.

    Soooooooo now I have an unlimited CARFAX account with a month left. Who wants reports? I'll run them for cheap. :D

    I voted you suck bro b/c i want a damn rex. Stupid Oklahoma demand for them drove the price up to around 2800-3500 for one. :angry:

    Its cool that you got a rex for a 2nd car. Sounds like one hell of a deal also. Congrats! Time for a beater/parts carrying truck :D

    :p to B :lol:

    I'll post pics when I finally get the car... it isn't in the best of shape on the outside, but the drivetrain is what I was more worried about. This isn't a project car for me- just reliable transportation.

    If you guys want CARFAX reports run, PM me.

    Hey, go find yourself a CRX already swapped for dirt cheap. Go inherit someone else's headache... :eek: :lol:

    I'm just glad that he wasn't really trying to sell the car- there was nothing wrong with it, he just mentioned it to Intercrew in passing, who immediately called me and that's that.

    :D

    Nah, I didn't really care that it was a CRX- I just wanted something that was in that price range, and reliable. This was too good of a deal, so I couldn't pass it up. Hell, I can resell most of the parts anyway, then sell the CRX for $1000 and turn a profit in the end if I really want to. These are the cars I was looking at:

    BMW 318 (older models)
    Honda Civic
    Toyota Tercel
    Honda Accord
    Toyota Camry
    Mazda MX-3
    Mazda 323
    Geo Prizm
    Geo Storm
    Isuzu pickups
    Toyota pickups
    Mazda pickups
    Mitsubishi pickups
    Nissan pickups
    Nissan Sentra
    Nissan Stanza
    Volvo 240/740/840
    Mercedes-Benz 190x
    Toyota Celica... AE86 y0!

    I looked at a LOT of cars over the past few weeks- any one of those that panned out would have been bought. I just happened to get the good deal on the CRX.

    :lol:
