View Full Version : '87 Rex. They don't make 'em like this anymore...

As you may, or may not, know I crashed my MR2 a few months back... into a cop car... he was at fault... anywho, using my insurance check, bought a '87 CRX Si for $400.

Body is in EXCELLENT shape, and all the electrics work. After getting Phoenix Motorsports to rebuild the engine and manage a port/polish job, the car runs like a scalded rabbit.

I've already done a few things to make the driving experience better (MAINLY, a better driver's seat) and the suspension needs to be tightened up a bit (the rear shocks are blown an the rear-end sways like a boat).

Pics, and more details, coming soon!

Nice. I had an 89 Si that I loved to death. I installed coil springs(due to the lack of them) and energy bushings. That alone made it a whole different machine. I never did anything else to it.
