My dad just picked up the VX. He said he only heard the right CV joint and it wasn't rallly that bad. Interior is nice and rust isn't that bad. I am trying to arrange for him to drive it here this weekend and fly him back. I'm happy so far.

LUUUCKY!

You might want to consider repairing the rust yourself and getting a cheap paintjob. it'll save you LOTS of money that you can spend on other cool mods.

I thought about doing it myself but the areas that are rusted are difficult to work on. Forming steel/aluminum around the wheel well curve could be a problem. Any ideas?

you are very lucky to pick up a vx. I just don't see the point in picking up an older car unless it's a classic. I'm just not into FE that much to look into one car specifically. I just buy what I want.

There are many advantages to owning an older Honda. First, they are cheap and parts are cheap, even free. Second, there isn't much crap under the hood so you can actually fix stuff yourself. Third, they are very dependable and long lasting.

I guess that we will have to disagree about the classic stuff. IMHO the VX is a classic. There weren't that many made and most of the surviving ones are riced out. A bone stock VX in good condition is quite rare. Perhaps it will become a collectors item. It was the first non 2 seater to achieve over 50 MPG EPA combined, which is about the same as the HCH.

I believe people make rust repair panels for the EGs, not sure. You can prolly go to the junkyard and saw some clean corners out of somebody's car. *shrug* there are lots of options, boo rust, I want to learn how to repair it more than anything,

I was pulling up to a stop light yesterday and noticed a white Civic slightly ahead. I kind of laughed to myself and wondered what the chances of it being a VX were (it was the correct year/generation). I was shocked when it turned out to really be a VX! This was the first one I had ever seen in town.

And then I noticed the 3 in. exhaust. The light turned green, a turbo howled, and that little VX screamed away in a din of rice-burning aftershock. Oh, the humanity!

As SVOBoy mentioned you might be able to get ahold of some clean rear panels and weld them on yourself. I don't know how to weld, and I'm unsure if you do either, but it's an option.

i'm sure someone with a wrecked hatch in Texas or California has a sawsall and would like to help.
