Get it back in! LOL

Ha, it came out because it sounded like a jar of marbles when it ran and every gear needed new syncros when I bought it, it was a "won't pass smog and we don't know why" car that I planned on just swapping over to a B18C1 since the EW3 proved to be next to impossible to get quality parts for.

 

The inability to get parts and then RPR shutting down for long enough to lose much of its traffic has essentially killed the project, I'd offer it up for sale but at this point I don't even know what a good asking price would be since from what I can tell, I'll never be able to afford a good running example with them running into the 5 digit range /when/ and /if/ they ever go up for sale around here.  I've had a Craigslist search term going since around 2016, I have gotten maybe 3-4 hits in 3 years.

 

Would love to own one again still, a functional example, but the one I have is beyond my ability to get going on, its an immaculate shell with a few choice suspension and cosmetic goodies, but I have neither the space nor the time to start from scratch on the mechanical aspects, and there's no shop that'd want to do it ether, I checked, I was going to go take out a bunch of money and just drop it at a shop for a year or two.

 

I started out with my red 1984 DX over 15 years ago, check my join date, I was 16, I'm 32 now, I had more time then than I do now, less money, but more time. Pretty much taking on the project was a bad idea for me, I should have gotten a good clean running car that I could improve on instead of a project that I couldn't find a focal point to work on.

They are getting so rare to find now for sure.  There is one for sale north of Phoenix and the body looks in really good shape but the interior is very rough and they still want $2500 for it not running.  Sorry to hear your engine and trans let go.  Your right on parts very hard to find as well.

Welcome back and glad you saw that chatter about RPR.

 

Not sure what happened there, looks like the hosting server was down for a bit. Sorry!

All good!  We appreciate you keeping the site up.  It truly is legendary in the 1st gen CRX and 3rd gen Civic world.

 

I hope you keep it up.  Are donations still needed, based on the meter?

No donations needed, another member is donating server space, so there are no ongoing costs at the moment! I should update that meter...

Apologies for the downtime the last couple of days, server issue.
