      I have to show this to a Coworker. He drives these gen of CRXs since '99, I bet he'll lust over this like nothing else

      CRXs were cool because they were lightweight nimble cars.
      I respect the rarity of this Exclusive model, but there is nothing that says slower and worse handling than a heavy glass roof on a light car (see Mini Cooper).

      Put it in a CRX and the timing cover hits.. ad a hump in the hood and it clears.

      I wonder what the Honda part number for that hood is ?!?!

      I don't like the weight or where it is, but I've already had a thing for that glass roof.

      A distribution center for Honda that carries the CRX, as well as other 'Verno' products. I think they also have one called 'Premo.' Not all Honda's can be bought at any Honda dealership. You'd have to go to the right Honda center.

      I believe Toyota has a similar system.. Something along the lines of Toyopet, and other names.

      It's for the 1.6 liter zc non v Tec motor.I had that hood on my right hand drive zc powered cr-x if you ran without that hood you had to cut the frame on the hood in that section to clear.

      Pretty sweet, what's not to love? Cars like that didn't exist in 1989.

      Wasn't this already posted? Or was it posted in that Honda thread and not actually given its own thread?

      my favorite part about that car is that it uses an F3 front wing.

      there was a thread somewhere about a guy who had his JDM CRX stolen and then it was found and most of the JDM stuff was left to burn. They chopped his top and rims, seats, etc but left the good JDM specific hardware bits. He had the only glass-top stateside or something.

      Anyone?
