Ok, I looked up some pics. On the first one you can see the rides we had in the Netherlands. My CRX VTEC, my wife's CRX and our 66 Mustang convertible in the back.
After that pics of my CRX VTEC, which I bought of the original owner and that has the 150 hp VTEC engine, leather interior and the other niceties that came with that version. The drive was awsome...
That's a fog light commonly found on european cars. Not a fog light like the ones we have - designed to let you see through fog - but simply a flashing red light to make your car more visible to drivers behind you in foggy conditions. If you look closely, the black CRX in the first pic has one too... It's just along side one of the reverse lights instead of replacing it.
Another difference between US and european tail lights: the US lights have red side markers while the EU turn signals just wrap all the way around.
Thanks for the nice comments. It sure was hard letting them go. My wife's CRX, even though not the VTEC model was in real nice shape too and in this regular model already had more hp than the US Si model. I would have liked to both bring them with me to the States and would have definietly paid the price to put them in a sea container. Thing is though that these are Euro models and don't have a specific US type aproval which would have costs at least $20,000 per car. That was a bit too much
They are both 1991 models and I bought the VTEC in 2001 0r 2002 if I am correct and my wife's CRX in 2001. The VTEC was always garaged and very much pampered by it's first owner. Even still had the original exaust system! And yeah, it was pretty much in mint condition. It was generally considered to be the nicest VTEC in the Netherlands because even the leather seats were mint and that was super rare. Sigh....
By the way, the fog light in the back does not flash during driving and will just be red continiously to be seen in the fog. And the it had the foglights in the front of course (original JDM and original equipment to the VTEC).
