1996 is .32. I'm pretty sure (80% sure) the 96 and 98 had the same body type.

Just realized that's the hatchback, not the sedan... will keep searching.

Correct. 1996-1999 were the same body style...maybe some minimal changes.

OK, how about the del Sol? I have never been able to find a CD or Frontal area, anywhere. Usually it's just N/A.

I'll work on the del slow.
 
I'll work on the del slow. Check your dealer sales brochure, my original CRX brocure says .29 for me, :)

.32 for the EK Civics non-HB.

.378 for DEL SOLS!!! In response to dan's comment about the truth of this I wonder but not heavily because many civics are like .35 and I think the back of the del sol looks like it wouldn't be too good for air flow but I dunno. It seems like he has a run down of factory specs so I don't think he would've randomly made one up.

Dude, pay some respect for some peoples' cars on here -- there happen to be some owners of that model on here.

Yes, I found that earlier but I have a hard time believing it. I can't find anything else to coroborate the .378. Perhaps someone else can find another source for that?
