I'll admit it, I just registered and my first port is a for sale post. I just figured this group might be interested in my car, and I'd give y'all a shot rather than having it go to HF hell and get swapped, dropped, and carbon fibered beyond recognition
It's a 1991 Honda CRX HF. 223K Miles, Manual Transmission.
Clear blue title in hand. Test drives are no problem.
The good -
* Everything works - INCLUDING THE A/C (converted to 134)
* New carpet + non smoker (no funky smells)
* Custom built flat load floor in the back
* Body/paint in decent condition
* The seats - they're mismatched and ugly - I have a set of sliders for aftermarket Corbeau seats that I will include with the car
* Very slow freon leak but a fill in June lasts all summer
* Wildly inaccurate fuel gauge. I tried to find an HF fuel sender but was unable to do so. I just reset the trip odometer at fill-up and go 300ish miles.

Car looks pretty nice. Wish you had some pictures of the seats so I could see how "bad" they look. I was very interested in a CRX but couldn't find one in my area to buy. There was one in Dallas that was on here for a while but the guy would never set a time for me to come drive it even though we talked several times. If the seats are as bad as you say, you may need to negotiate a price down a bit. Good looking car from what I can tell, though. GLWS!
I'm betting I could take that to a local shop and have that repaired for $50 to $100 tops. I don't think you really have seat issues. Yeah, they're worn, but they're not destroyed as I previously thought.
