    Supposedly it's happening now. My dad swears that he saw one next to him on I-295 near DC the on monday night.

    He said it was all covered with black tape it looked like, and there was a single driver. He waved and the driver waved back.

    I believe it was Celerity that had an awesome post in regards to this car.

    I'm kind of depressed now that I have seen Honda's concept cars. The Accord Crosstour = Ugly. That FC Sport is flat out DISGUSTING. I'd never be caught dead in one of those things.

    I wonder if this will actually be better than the CRX vs. trying to make sales through the name/concept.

    i'm pretty sure 99% of the people who buy the cr-z will have never owned or possibly even driven a crx. it will be a whole new "hybrid" enthusiast rather than a sport coupe fan.

    i also am 99% sure that virtually all fans of the CRX will bitch and cry that the CR-Z isnt enough like the CRX and that Honda should just bring the 2nd gen CRX back into production... others will bitch that it should have had a K series in it.... others will bitch that it should have been turboed.... others will bitch that it should have been RWD.... others still will bitch that it should be AWD and have 400whp

    i am also 99% sure that 99% of the people complaining about the CR-Z will do so while having never driven one...

    :concur:

    regardless of the end product, there will be a lot of broke ass clowns that A) can't afford it or B) would rather drive something else, still complain about it.

    I hate when people who have no interest in a car find something to bitch about. people who wouldn't own a car, shouldn't bitch. I wont ever own an E92, so I wont bitch about how it would be better with AWD instead of RWD.

    honda owners just like to bitch about shit.

    The crosstour isn't that bad in person, it actually looks like a cool, unique car when you are standing next to it. Honda has a bad habit of providing horrible press release shots. Honda also has the worst advertising of any automaker. These are things we bitch about at work.

    Hasport will come out with a K-swap kit as soon as the fuckers hit the showroom, if not before.

    My biggest issue with newer cars is size. How big is the CRZ compared to say the Insight or even the CRX?

    I agree, the civic got huge and the chevy suburban shrunk. It's like they're trying to make all vehicles the same size.
