Happy SUNday! – Back to the Future

A fun little econo car from Honda – the 1985 CRX HF – high-tech ’80s tech in a box

IMG_20181027_0007 logo

This amazing Honda (shown here in October 1985 with Carol “stealing” my commuter car) got well over 50 mpg on the highway with a 1.5-liter gas engine and manual transmission. The “HF” model (high fuel) was the most difficult of the three models to find at a dealership as they were in high demand and produced in a somewhat limited way. The car with a full tank of gas and a driver still weighed in at just under 2,000 pounds – no airbags but it did have AC and a radio. Doc’s DeLorean had nothing on my CRX!
