My HF has both a clock and A/C. I know A/C was an option but I thought all came with clocks.

My 91 HF has the door mounted seatbelts but also has all of the holes and nuts installed for pillar mounted, no modification required.

1990-1991 HF - 1967 pounds.

curb weight on my registration for my 90 crx hf is 1940lbs

my hf came with ac, i removed it.
my hf did not come with a clock.

90 hf looks better than an 89 (bumper, tail lights, dash)

is the vx engine and transmission that much better than a hf engine and transmission?

i know the seats in an SI weigh a decent amount more than the hf seats, Si seats are so much nicer.

Well I was supposed to pick it up friday, but unfortunately my truck doesn't have a tow hitch to tow it with a dolley from uhaul. I'm probably going to put a down payment and just pick it up next week. I'm just really eager to drop that d15z1 in it. It has the original hf seats, but I just don't like them and will probably end up swapping them with the si seats.

It was kind of funny seeing my Denali tow my HF home when I bought it. One of the worst offenders of FE towing one of the best FE cars of all time. I did however employ hypermiling techniques on the tow home and was able to yield 16.5mpg for the 120 mile trip home on windy hilly roads, which wasn't too shabby.

I need to replace the seats in my HF too. The foam has completely disintegrated in several places and you can feel the metal frame when you sit in it. I would like to find a set of seats that weigh less than the HF's though.
