Not much of a honda guy, so no advice on motor.
yep Im a Toyota guy, dont know nothin about Honda.
Glad to hear your engine is ok, the car looks great.
Had your engine indeed been dead I'm sure there are no end of 'd' series engines available to fit from DOHC to VTEC, as well as larger engines that can & have been fitted before, with redpepperracing being one early CRX & 3rd gen Civic specialist fan website/forum.
you werent kidding about them D series motors. I really have no plans in making it go fast. I just want to keep it as original and reliable as possible.
Its a blast to drive.
More shots of the car after my wife and I cleaned the hell out of it.
