1989 Honda Civic CRX SI Lemons Champion

Spotted in Buttonwillow, California is a 1989 Honda Civic CRX SI Lemons Champion for $2,000 USD. This is the Ex-24 Hours of Lemons multi-time overall winner. Everything you need to go racing reliably today with current 2017 belts, 2017 fuel cell, 2018 near new tires on 2018 949 Racing ultra-light wheels, 1 race on brand new brake rotors and DTC-60 Hawk pads (~90% remaining), wired for radios with new extended antenna, a blueprinted D16A6 engine and a handful of used spares. Well sorted, well balanced, forgiving at the limit and a lot of fun. ~300point car in Champ Car, so plenty of room for modifications for more speed. Better tuned than it was a year ago and some reliability gremlins fixed, so the car now runs 2:08’s at Buttonwillow as it sits (have data logs to prove it) and would be quite competitive (compare with lap times from the last Champ race @ Buttonwillow: https://speedhive.mylaps.com/Sessions/4602442). More recently at a Lemons event, the car also turned the 8th fastest lap of all 119 entries, including being 0.4sec faster than eventual winner Cerveza Racing all the while having much better fuel economy. The ergonomics easily accommodate drivers between 5’6″ 150lbs to 6’1″ 210lbs.
