Josh and his nimble CRX.

I’ve always wanted one. It’s something you don’t see every day, and it’s surprisingly quick. The name is a bit of a mouthful, most people refer to them as a ‘Del Sol’ which is what they’re badged as in the States. Believe it or not it’s actually pretty practical; it’s got a big boot, uses barely any fuel and has been really reliable. Having said that, I really only bought it for the fun.

It’s such a great car in the hills; I’ve given a lot of faster cars a run for their money in the tight stuff. It’s a fair way from stock now though; it’s lowered on K-Sport coilovers and the wheels are 15x8 Rota Grid replicas. It didn’t take much work to achieve the stance; from factory you can get pretty big wheels under the guards thanks to the car’s natural camber.

I recently installed a set of RE003 Potenza tyres which has made a world of difference. The coilovers are on a soft setting so the ride is actually quite smooth, well, a lot smoother than you’d expect anyway. 

On the inside the car’s got a Nardi Torino steering wheel and seats from a Honda S2000 along with a few other cosmetic bits. I’ve got an LSD gearbox to put in when I get the chance and I plan to turbocharge it one day. But for now I’m just enjoying it the way it is, it’s so rewarding to drive
