I have a '92 VX that I bought a few month ago for $1595. Since then I have spent a few hundred dollars on getting the maintenance up to speed, but since buying it, it has given me 50+ mpg constantly. This weekend I will try to finally do it and drive 55 mph on a trip to Michigan (located close to Dayton, Ohio) and see what it does for me.
If money allows I want to attend to the rust that's forming on the rear wheel wells and have the whole car painted (and no $500 job either). The way it's driving for me and the mpg it's getting justifies getting a decent VX to a good condition again I think. Even if I were to end up having spent $3000 total, just look at what a new car costs and the mpg you get with that. I am starting to like my VX better and better and hope to drive with it for quite a while (unless a mint VX comes by one day and then I might get that ).
So how many VX's do we count so far?

McPatrick, you might want to touch base with your insurance company about how "they" value your vehicle. If you invest $3000 and have an excellent value machine for that and then you're involved in an accident, you may be heartbroken to find out that even though damages might be only $1500, that your insurance company might want to do a write-off and give you an appraised value that is even less. Been there, done that... they win.

six if you count the CRX HF with vx motor

three stripes the charm!

Car mods are overrated. Just gotta adjust that nut behind the wheel for best mpg.

Forget about World Peace...Visualize using your turn signal.
