    I wish car companies would offer cheap basic cars. I don't care if the car comes with a ball scratcher. They would sell millions of CRX's if they left it the same size as the old ones but made the car more "up to date".

    'Gobs of power' isn't what the CRX was about though... It was an affordable, small, agile, yet still somewhat zippy econocar. It doesn't need to be an S2000, but it sure as hell can't be a pig, either.

    It's coming here for sure. Trust me. Judging from the options it will have, should be sporty too.

    Honda makes one, its called the fit.

    For the most part people dont want cars like that.

    I'd love to have a basic super light car with zero options with 240hp, a 6 speed and RWD.

    I'd be all over that. however, just like the small cars. people just dont want it.

    They build it and 5,000 cars get sold. FIAL

    People are starting to get into the smaller car idea like the fit, however they want power windows, power seats, 6 cup holders, climate control, 5 disc CD player, Sat radio, HD radio, maybe even heated seats, and they want it for cheap.

    When it comes to small cars there's really only 1 option

    I would do just fine with this package in any car, plus A/C of course.

    power windows, 2 cup holders, no CD player, cooled seats??

    and fucking A give me a factory tach while they're at it. STANDARD.

    I'd love to see them come over.. might even buy one when it gets to 2 or 3 years old.

    But, the CRX weighed ~2000 pounds. That is something that no auto manufacturer can pull off these days without going carbon fiber and charging a million bucks. The spirit of the crx lives in its lack of weight.. That is what makes it so fun and nimble. If it weighed 3500 pounds it would flat out suck.

    ^ This is too expensive.

    A great car would be a two seater like the crx with rear wheel drive and the engine and tranny like the S2000 with a/c being the only option. Sell it for 12-15K I'd buy two.

    I'm going to find a way to con jeffie into buying me my next car, cause I don't care what it'd be or what options it has, but it has to be brand new.
