Oh yeah, I remember that. My point is that from a practicality standpoint, the Del Sol was never a CRX. I could fit a 5 piece drum set in a CRX. Was the Del Sol ever offered in an HF version? And the love it/hate it shape of the CRX was lost when the Del Sol came along.

The Del Sol was a great car, but is wasn't a CRX (even though it was, ).

The *only* thing about the Del Sol that I liked was the nose. A CRX with that nose would have been cool. I remember reading that the drivetrain had become softer and less fun than the CRX as well. I mean, the 911 (squashed VW beetle) became a signature design for Porsche. Why not the CRX for Honda ?

*sigh*

I personally thought the Del Sol was a rip on the Porsche 914. If you look at many of the body lines, they are at least similar, with the Sol's being more swoopy. Another similarity between the Sol and the 914 is the (rumored) initial plan of making the car a mid-rear. Open up a Del Sol trunk...it's surprisingly roomy...roomy enough for a power train. I totally support the conspiracy theory that early on this car was designed to be a mid-rear and at some point much later in the design process, they decided to change it to a FWD setup.

Wow. Let, see, I've been waiting 15 years to hear that. I better start trolling for concept car/spy photos on the net.
