Topic: Lemons-Raced Honda CRX Looking For New Home SC $500

Some friends and I ran our first Lemons race in this car 10 years ago.  It has run 6 or 7 total races, mostly in Lemons but a few Chump as well.  It is a 1986 CRX with the engine, trans, brakes, and suspension from a 1987 (I think) Integra.  It is stupid light and easy on components.  A blast to drive on a tight road course.  It ran it's last race in 2016 (I think) and has been parked inside a storage trailer since.  It has been completely dry and appears to look exactly as it did when I parked it, but the buyer should assume it will need a lot of work.

I am willing to sell it for $500 if the buyer promises to do a thorough job getting it back into racing shape and will give me a seat in the first race (any time, any track).  I'm a nice guy and handy with a wrench.  I also have replaced every part on the car and was a part of every step in the evolution from craigslist ad to racecar, so I would be pretty useful to have around for that first race anyway.

  • 1986 Honda CRX W/ Drivetrain from 1987+/- Acura Integra

  • Ran when parked

  • Everything unnecessary has been stripped.

  • About 1,600 pounds with full fluids

  • A bunch of spare parts, but don't ask me for a list.  Just know that there are lots of them and some will maybe even be useful.

  • Finished most races after drivetrain was swapped

  • Great on tight courses, kinda lame on banked ovals

  • Complied with all Lemons and Chump rules as of 2016+/-.  Not sure about now

  • Original front bumper was removed at CMP in the rain by a Crown Vic in race #2.  Current front bumper was homemade and a little overkill.  It would probably be smart to replace it with a lighter setup.to get some weight off the front.

The car is located in Greenville, SC.  You can come look at it anytime.

Sorry. The last post was so short because I was in the car, and couldnt type longer than a red light.

I would like to buy your car.
I would happily have you on our team, for free...
We are currently a one car team.  We run a crown vic, v8, automatic.
We are running CMP in September, and again in April 2021 for the 24 hour race

Re: Lemons-Raced Honda CRX Looking For New Home SC $500

Did the car sell?  I am interested in driving down and picking it up.

Please let me know.

Re: Lemons-Raced Honda CRX Looking For New Home SC $500

I have spoken with a few people interested in the car.  I have some great options and I've told those teams I will make a decision by next week. 

I would prefer a team that fits this desciption:

  • at least some track experience

  • located in the same region as me

  • would allow me to purchase seats in future races

Re: Lemons-Raced Honda CRX Looking For New Home SC $500

Ok well if they fall through give us a shout. We have never done Lemons just a lot of SCCA stuff. We are in Southern Ohio so would be mostly northern stuff. We are a Honda group though so if you ever want some seat time look us up. We are prepping an integra right now.

Very interested in this, I've raced a Honda Civic for a few years in Lemons before swapping to Miata for the infamous Corvette Bummer vette. I'm located in Lexington SC which is about an hour away from Greenville. let me know if you decide to pick me, you are more then welcome to drive the car in at least one race probably more.

Thanks for all the interest.  I believe we have something worked out with a team that will give the car a good new home.

Bump.

Bob and Dan did not buy it.

We couldn't get it out of the Semi truck trailer, and the tow truck driver didnt want to help.

Its still for sale.

Send him an email

Re: Lemons-Raced Honda CRX Looking For New Home SC $500

Here is what we saw as potential buyers
1.  Cage looked good
2. Needs fire suppression
3. Seat looked good
4. Lots of spare rims
5.  Glass and hatchback was removed, so must be stored inside
6. Stuck inside of a tractor trailer, with no easy way to get it out.
7. Antifreeze in the oil (i dont know why)


Our summary,  if you cant build a roll cage, but you can do engine work, and have indoor storage,  this is a great price for a quick car.

Re: Lemons-Raced Honda CRX Looking For New Home SC $500

I could use a spare engine and transmission for this thing if there are any out there close to Columbia SC? I havent been able to get into the engine to find what is going on with coolant in the oil but supposedly the two are not supposed to mix wink
