I found the perfect commuter car. It is a 1986 Honda CRX HF. What’s not to love – small wheelbase, two seats, and 50mpg. This car is the ultimate child of the 1970’s oil crises. Rumors were that you could get over 70mpg. All this with just an internal combustion engine. And it was cheap.
Sure it has a lawn mower engine (59 HP, quarter mile time over 20 sec.), but do you really need that much power when you’re sitting in traffic on CA85 to Mountain View traveling at 5mph at most?
And on top of all that, it a numbered, authorized convertible conversion. Makes it even better. I’m sure that Jeremy Clarkson would agree that this thing is a real find. And at $6000.-, it’s a steal.
