Any memorable moments?
Probably breaking down for the first time (laughs). The alternator just failed when I was out one night, and it was 3am! Looking back, I think it was funnier than it was annoying. That experience really set me up mentally for what fixing up a classic car was going to be like.
What was your car ownership journey like before the CRX?
Well, this black beauty is actually my first car. But I have driven a fairly large variety of enthusiast cars because my friends and family are all car nuts.
Just before the CRX, I used to drive the family’s Suzuki Swift Sport (ZC33S). We have a thing for hatchbacks. The Swift Sport replaced a Volkswagen Golf R32 as the small family runabout hatch.
What's on your list of dream cars?
Hmm… maybe a fully restored CRX (laughs)? I’m really working on getting it there, and so that’s the short term goal.
I think in the long term, something just as mechanical but even more so. Perhaps an Alfa Romeo Giulia Type 105 or an air-cooled Porsche? Really, anything with dual webers would be nice, perhaps another Honda but with carbs?
