I hope you get eternal jock itch for making that statement...baker423 said:What are you guys talking about, Honda did re-release the Crx, it is now known as the Fit! :? :lol:
I hope you get eternal jock itch too...jfrolang said:If ever a 5-door CRX was made, it would be exactly what the Fit is. Don't knock them, go drive one.
I 2nd with mithuth's statements. The Fit is nothing more then honda's "Fit" with us asking for a new CRX. It will never happen.mithuth said:
The fit is no crx. Don't get me wrong, it's a very nice car, and it's not a bad replacement for the older civic wagon, but it's a long way from the crx.baker423 said:Well since the Insight is discontinued, the Fit is now the closest thing Honda has to a "new" Crx.
Correct we almost went two months without this damn thing coming up and now look two in a week I stand behind my statement in the other crappy thread.baker423 said:This is what bothers me.
Didn't we just discuss this recently,recently being 2 days ago!!! :?

That is why i said that it was the CLOSEST thing to a Crx. But i will agree with you that is def resembles the old Civic wagons.bil said:The fit is no crx.

All true, but a key thing to my mind is that it is a two seater--and that means you can have a smaller car with cargo capacity and lots of room for the driver and passenger. In that respect, the crx isn't trying to be something it's not.jfrolang said:The Insight made a great CRX HF. It may have even sold better if labeled as such. It did not, however, address the fun-to-drive factor. The Fit fills this need.
Aside from the obvious body difference, let's look at what made the CRX so great.
Light weight (Yes I know some of you will say 2400lbs is heavy, but look at most new cars these days)
Economical yet gutsy engine
Large cargo capacity
A manual transmission that feels great and encourages shifting
It doesn't look anything like a CRX, but a Fit is its spiritual successor.
There are people that see insanity in dumping money into a 20 year old CRX, but 20 years from now, I think Fits will have a cult following just like the CRX. I can already see it in the online forums. And just like the CRX, the aftermarket for Fits is exploding. Fastbrakes has developed rear disc conversions and front big-brake setups, Hasport is developing K-series mounts... :twisted:bil said:I can't imagine having a 20 year old fit and being prepared to drop 3-4K on fixing it up like I am with my 88.
You may well be right about the cult of fit, it is a very nice car.jfrolang said:I agree with the you about having 2 seats. In the late 80s though, 2-seaters were more accepted. Today there are very few, and basically every one of them is a convertible. I actually can't think of any that don't have a convertible counterpart, and all of them are above the price range of a CRX. Adjusted for inflation, a 1991 CRX Si would have a sticker of about 17-18k today, which makes the Fit look even better.
A Fit will be my next new-car purchase, I'm sold on it.
