I always wanted one of these and when I found out in 1992 they were going to discontinue them I had to bite the bullet and get a loan for one. I had been originally saving to pay cash for one but when I heard they were not going to continue making them, I had to start looking for one quickly. There just happened to be one exactly of my wanting at my area Honda dealership. The owner of the dealership was getting ready to put this car along with another teal CRX si in his warehouse with his other cars he collects until we started wheelin' and dealin' so long story short, I bought this 1991 CRX si new in early 1992 when it only had 200 miles on it and have had it ever since. I have it's oil changed every 3,000 miles and have changed out the exhaust system, spark plugs and wires, rotor button, timing belt and cv boots (all of which have been replaced with Honda parts by Honda mechanics). It's still got the original clutch at 165,000 miles on it. The interior and exterior are still in great shape! The only upgrade I have made to it has been a nicer stereo system with satellite radio. I have people who approach me to sell it but I tell them I bought this car new and have had it for so long that there is no way I could see myself parting with it because most likely.......I'll probably be buried in it! It's a fun car to drive and I wish Honda would bring it back. There are articles out on the web about a concept vehicle called the Honda CR-Z which very well could be the comeback of these cars. If they do make this car, you can bet I'll be trying it out and comparing it to my 1991 but most likely - I'll still be driving my 1991 and going for the Gold, Platinum or even the Diamond Mile Maker Medal in it!
