What CRX related things would you do if you won the lottery tomorrow?

Here's my short list:

1. Buy a piece of property and build a shop with a high roof and a hoist.
2. Buy all the fancy mechanic's tools that I've always wanted
3. Source out an authentic Mugen CRX Pro 2 kit
4. Replace rear quarter panels and repair all rust and then repaint.
5. Go get the engine swap of my dreams. B18C5 or B18C with supercharger and install it myself.
6. Buy some Mugen M7's
7. Completely restore my special edition to mint condition.
8. Buy a DX and build a race car.
9. Import a CRX Exclusive from Japan.
10. Import a CRX Sir Glasstop from Japan.

Guess I better go buy a lotter ticket tomorrow, hey? ;)

I would do your entire list, and then:

11. With all that land I bought, build some sort of track in my backyard where I could have fun with my CRX's.
12. Seek out an Si of every stock color.

If I had won the lottery I would do the same Sticker as far as the crx goes but of course I would have the garage full of rare imports. Glass top would be a must the CRX would be have to be black. And I dont care how rare it is it definately wouldnt have the back seat. I also would have to have a 1st gen black Si with every thing from dual webers to the louvers.

Dual webbers are some kicking carbs for first gen's.
I've got a set of Mikuni's in my basement (basically just a different company). They're a nifty sight.

I would find an awesome, clean CRX with low miles and turn it into a garage queen. Then, I would find a couple other to modify.
On my list of fun things to do if I ever hit it big is to buy a large peice of property and build a roadcoarse in my backyard. 1.2, 1.8 miles? Who knows. Then you could charge people to use it like the guy at Gingerman Raceway in South Haven, Michigan does. He gets everything from SCCA races to Car and Driver coming to him. And the best part, his house is like 500 feet from the track and the pits.

You don't need to import ITR's, if you look around you can find them in the U.S. I forget the exact number but there's some here. My friend has one, he paid $21,000 for it and he had to drive 5 hours to get it.

and you call yourself a crx fanatic? :p j/k. yeah, as stu said, webers are a swank brand of carburetor's. they make sidedrafts and downdrafts. i dream of someday having sidedrafts mated to a high-compression, built-up d16a1. that'd be some wicked power.

depends on the amount.

i wouldnt be one of those people who say "im not going to quit my job". I go into work say "later fools, i quit!". Move back to florida, buy a big house lotsa land and tons of crx related stuff. I would start a paving company and build a race track, then call it a business expense.
Then at my race track in fla I would start a huge crx meet, right on the infield.

Of course tons of crx stuff. and id go buy me a lambo just because.

i could go on, but the fools at work are waiting on me.

Invest in Honda Stocks!!!

Just kidding. If it were 1 million+ I'd buy a nice piece of land and build THIS oh and build a home too... I'd let the wife pick most of the stuff out. :) Go to Honda and pick out a nice Pilot for the wife, an S2K and a Ridgeline for myself. Seacrh for a Mint Si SE and haul it back with the Ridgeline. Find a 88HF and make it the Project car.

As for my wifes Kia... I would then take a bball bat to it. Once that's done I'd empty the car of all fluids start her up, put a brick on the gas pedal and just wait... :twisted: once the unavoidable BANG occurs I'd then cut it up into itty bity pieces and throw the car out into the garbage. Oh how sweet would that be....

If it were $5+million, I'd buy a house with dockage on the ICW in Ft. Lauderdale or somewhere's around there, and get myself a nice 40-45ft yacht to put out in the yard. Tack on a Porsche GT and a STS-V, and use about $15k to get my CRX they way it used to be (plus some extras :D ).

Then, I'd invest the rest to earn income (to make up for petrol costs to fuel the yacht), and start cruisin the Bahamas.

Oh, and I'd have a solid titanium "Early Retirement" sign hung on my front door.

Now, for $1million or less, the house wouldn't be ICW frontage, and the cars would be a little different, and the boat would be smaller, but you get the idea.

my list:

1. buy a house
2. build a garage. 3 car with a lift in 1 bay. all snap on tools with outside compressor (loud compressors are annoying).
3. completely restore my crx and build it NA
4. probably buy another stock crx sir (or VT) glasstop and keep it mint

i dont know what i would do as far as looks, i like the stock look, but i dunno.
