    looks neat...but if you want to try selling it the inside will need to look much better

    I think it looks OK. I don't dig the color, but that's no biggie. The tail end kind of has a boxy Mercedes look to it.

    No you are wrong. The CRX never came from the factory like that. Here is the real deal just so you know and everyone else will know because these discussions have been going on for years.

    Convertable CRXs were manufactured by Palm Conversions on a contract by Honda in California. 1000 models were modified bought back from Honda and sold in Honda showrooms in California, Arizona, Flordia, Texas, and in the Atlanta Region of Georgia. The backs of the CRXs had their logo's changed on the taillights from the normal CRX to CRX-TT, which stands for Transferable Top. Not Twin Turbo like some people seem to like to believe. Anyways now that everyone has read this they are educated and now able to pass this info around when they see another thread like this or when someone asks.

    Here are some pics of a modified Honda sold CRX-TT. This one has been butchered but you can still see the difference in this one and Mike's grey CRX.

    Honda did not make a CRX convertible. All the CRX convertibles out there are customs. Personally I think they're ugly. I also think that the amount of chassis support needed would make the car way too heavy to be fast, even with a swap.

    Yes they never came from the factory like that. They were made on commision by Palm Conversions. Then they were sold at a higher price at the Honda dealerships.
