    from someone who tells me he saw my Mugen/Houseman kit for sale during a google search (I sold it last year BTW)

    Anyway, he tells me he has an original Mugen CRX thats been in storage for 20 years (11,000km's) and though now would be a good time to bring the car out, freshen it up, and was looking for places/ideas/ect on how to make it faster (he says the motor is "tired") and handle better. He's been using it as DAILY DRIVER lately :

    After a long conversation I gave him my email address, he sent me some pics and I referred him to a few links to get him going....he assured me he WILL NOT mess with the body of the car other than a possible repaint

    Anyway, the car has the following Mugen parts:
    Street kit
    Catback
    Header
    Roll bar
    Fortran Asso's
    Rear garnish
    Showa suspension
    LSD

    I guess it was repainted while ago..appears to be missing the spoiler, windshield banner, and side graphics...still pretty cool to know its out there (even if its on the other side of the world)

    When gas is $0.50/gal, why wouldn't they? The Saudis love big american cars, because they tend to have big airconditioners. lol.
