This 1992 Honda CRX Del Sol 1.5 VTec is in stunning condition for the year. Imported in 1999, it has deep gloss black pearlescent paintwork and a black & grey interior with full leather seats.

Throughout its life it has been maintained & cared for regardless of cost. There is a colossal history & service file, including such things as timing belt changes at 74k, 108k and 121k, an anti-rust waxoyl treatment in 2005, 3 recent tyres, and a 3-year guaranteed Halfords battery. It has MOT till July 2020 with no advisories, was recently serviced (oil still clean and gold), had recent new distributor cover, rotor arm and HT leads, and has no leaks. The car is HPI clear, and has had 5 UK owners.

There are no modifications to the D15A engine, which runs spot-on, but the car has an aftermarket stainless steel exhaust system with perfect burble tone, not over-loud or annoying. It is fitted with 15" alloys, hardly marked, and a certificated Cat 1 alarm fitted by Audio Images, with 2 keys & fobs. The 5-speed manual gearbox changes smoothly, with no funny noises or crunching. The period Kenwood stereo & 6-CD auto changer works perfectly, and comes with full original Instructions.

Obviously the star turn with these cars is the removable steel targa roof. This roof is manual, so no electrics to go awry, and the gloss black roof panel still has the same high standard of paint finish as the rest of the car. The construction is such that, with the panel in place, the car feels from inside like a full fixed-roof coupe. So this certainly isn't a summer-only vehicle. But with the panel removed (two simple levers) and the powered windows down, its a full-on targa convertible. Especially as - and this is the Del Sols other party trick - for maximum wind-in-the-hair if desired, the widthways rear glass window lowers electrically too! How's that for a 1992 car!

Lifting-out and stowing the roof panel can be a bit unwieldy. For two people it's easy-peasy, most men will manage it fine alone after a practice, but - without wishing to appear sexist - its probably on the heavy side for some ladies to lift solo. The boot's pretty massive for such a compact car, and the panel sits in the top of the boot on a lockable frame. Just position it, and pull two locking levers into place. Done. The stowed roof occupies about a quarter of the boot depth.

The contoured black & grey leather seats are totally intact - no rips, tears, gouges or loose stitching - but the black areas have sun-faded with the years to varying hues of black-brown. Apart from the headrests, peculiarly. It was my intention when I got the car to re-colour the leather (as I have with a couple of previous classics) but the reason I haven't is that the worn-old-leather-jacket patina of the seats has grown on me! It would be easy enough to do, with a Woolies leather-revive kit and careful masking-off of the grey panels & piping (or just get a Connolliser in). But for me, the seats have been fine as they are!

There is a mechanical (or possibly electrical) flaw - after all, the car is 27 years old. The passenger door lock doesn't open with the fob. You have to unlock from the interior handle.

But overall, this car is a joy. It drives & sounds great, is a true time-warp vehicle, and the twinkly black high-gloss paint & now rarely-seen roof arrangement draw admiring looks & comments.
