i was born 20 years before this thread started to the day. and you had this car that whole time... i'm not sure what to feel about that. but obviously major props on the years of love you've put into the car, it looks great.

Yea, you know it's funny I work with a few guys that aren't as old as my car. When I graduated high school in 1980 something like a 1965 mustang in really good condition wa considered a hard to find pretty rare classic car and it was only 15yrs. old. When I think of that and how my car is 22 yrs old it's amazing it's more like seeing a 1957 model in 1980 . I tell you there weren't nearly as many 1957's around then as there are now. (Due to the values brought by recent restorations). Biggest difference is you could do anything you want with a classic american car and it wouldn't drive at all like a current day car. My car drives as nice as anything I have ever driven period.
Funny too that I sold a 1983 mustang GT.(The first year the GT had the 5.0 litre with a newly introduced 5 speed.) which was the first real performance mustang since about 1973. To buy my CRX in 1988.
Wanna hear something else funny, I bought the car brand new for a little under 11 grand. Yup, I said under 11,000.00 MAKES ME WISH I BOUGHT TWO!!

Your car looks great. Congrats on such a long tenure, way to stick to it! I've got a very similar turbo build being pieced together; where does your intake pipe-filter end up? Have any more pics of the set up?

Hey, thanks. The intake filter is down low on the passenger side front corner. (it is a tight squeeze). I'll try and get you a better picture.

Sweet car!! and I thought I was an old fart. I graduated in 87, I had an 85 CRX Si then. It got totaled and I wish I had one now. It'd go great with the 91 I have.

That is a great looking CRX... I am NOT a fan of body kits and I love this one! It works with the CRX's lines instead of trying to make it something else... Looks great!

And then the motor, turbo and A/C? It's nice to see that you CAN have it ALL!!!

Engine bay looks great and tastfully done! Love the valve cover condition... hits you immediately when you look into the engine bay...

Time to grab a beer in your honor! :-)b

Killer story, awesome car! The lady I bought mine from told me she paid around $12,500 for it, but it was a '91. It must drive great, go like stink, and sound awesome! Great work and I agree with others about the body kit and looks. It's suits the car. :-)b
