    The shell itself looks to be in decent condition.

    exactly what i was thinking....

    i emailed the person and they said it has just blown....and no it wasnt from driving....

    so me thinks that it isnt completely fooked ^_^

    i was also looking at this

    eBay Australia: 1988 HONDA CRX COUPE BLACK 5 SPEED MANUAL NEW ENGINE (item 120132153380, end time 25-Jun-07 21:15:00 AEST)

    but its a little out of my region.... and it will be sold unregistered :mellow: so i will be fucked if i want to drive it back home :( i emailed him and he says he wants atleast 5k for it registered....i know for a fact if i did buy it first thing id be doing is throwing away the chromies right in front of him and driving away

    actually i went to go look at one today thank you very much....

    and a 1g crx

    lol i delayed my job interview one day to go look at the crx.....

    and the piece of shit wasnt even worth the 1k for it....(which i may add i would have been more then happy to pay the $200 towing fee

    it was covered in rust and even though the guy said it had low millage.....there was evidence of otherwise....

    Why the hell would you want a honda beat? Don't those things have like 3hp?


    Now, if you could get your paws on a S360, S500, S600, or S800.. I'm sure everyone at hondaswap would drool themselves stupid.

    I've been hunting one for years. (They are available here, but for rediculously high prices) Well, available as in, a few have been shipped over by private parties.

    i think the beat had about 70hp from a 3 cylinder
    i don't think the S's were much better

    agreed fuck the beat....

    there around 10k here anyway and thats in good condition....

    ive been in one....

    and i know this car wouldnt be done quickly....but it would be in budget for a crx..

    wouldnt cost me more than 5k to get it to me get to engine fixed/replaced and have rego done....

    which is what a crx would probably cost me and that would be with high milleage

    The S's did around 100mph top speed.. But they are freakin awesome.

    The 1970 s-800 could handle 10k rpms. :wub:

    Gawd, I'd love to have one.

    ahh well depends....

    getting it registered can be a bitch but at the same time can be simple...

    ill put it in simple forms first and if need be expand it later

    if you have a new car (like i go buy a brand new civic) i walk into the rta with the green slip and its registered

    if i walk in with a car that has been sitting on a front lawn for a year or so...

    i need to go get it repaired in almost new condition (yeah right) and get a blue slip a green slip and i think another slip to get it registered....

    AND INSURANCE IN AUSTRALIA IS NECESSARY
