    I saw this '92 VX hatch at my local Stop & Shop parking lot last week... I've got to get my Si to a body shop this summer to address the rust issues on her. I took this picture to remind me not to ignore the problem. *sigh*

    No. VX's are the most fuel efficient of the EG hatches. And they have a tachometer.

    SI>>>>>>>>>>>>VX>>>>>DX>>>>>CX

    The CX is the lowest trim level. Yes, those are stock VX rims on that hatch.

    cx gets more mileage than a vx... but the vx actually can move out of its own way...

    CX never has to shift higher than 3rd gear and has mad 2nd gear highway pull. Even more than the AllTrac.

    CX is a torque monster. Most torque per displacement of any Honda engine. And the gears are so tall, you can do roll on burnouts in 2nd gear at 70 MPH. Crazy shit.

    too bad for my hatchy... the rust was nowhere near that... just a tad on the wells.

    his old CRX...and Chris's old CRX...both were rust buckets that I had to put down....may they RIP.

    Martine's car does have some major spots......and if not taken care of real soon...she will have to find a new shell.


    And the good thing is....this cheap sandblaster I got is perfect for body rust....nothing else, but I have a fealing I'm going to be blasting a few cars this year, starting with the AE86, then my CRX, and then to the Jeep, and the Z might see some sand sent at a velocity to make metal bare again....hehe

    Eh... I have the usual Honda rear fender well rust. It's $350 a quarter panel to have it "fixed". I just have to stop buying parts and cars for a while and get that done. The rest of the undercarriage looks good to me. There is rust in the engine bay which I can work on myself, one section at at time. I bought new radiator fan bolts this week to replace the two rusted ones and the missing one that already self destructed.
