Here's my little CRX story... It all started way back in the early 2000's. I had just bought an imported Japanese "ZC"engine for my old, tired & rusted CDM 1990 CRX DX. This engine was a bolt in extra 35hp for my car and often wondered why Canada didn't get such an option in these cars. At this point in time, I had no idea that companies were importing entire cars...I was simply amazed at all the clean, low mileage engines people were starting to bring in. I would "surf the net" for hours, just looking at all of these different engines and these cool half-cut, RHD cars, with all these cool options that were never available. Then I somehow stumbled onto Importconcern's web page...and the obsession began. I was on their site daily, checking out new stock and using their log in to look through the USS auctions. I would look through all of the crazy, unique cars I had never heard of, nor seen before...dreaming of the day I could get enough cash together to buy one. I waited a couple of years, trying to save what I could. Unfortunately, saving is not one of my strongest traits. It wasn't until I went back to school and opened up a big 'ol student line of credit, that I was able to free up enough virtual cash for my "dream car"...eventually settling on the car you see below, in early 2006. I think this was the early days for a lot of companies and I had a lot of hassles with this car before I could legally drive it here in N.S. It was purchased through a company that no longer exists: JDMachines, who used Monky's Inc in Japan. The fella, Will, at JDMachines was good to deal with...but man, there were some hiccups: -car was purchased from auction in March, Ro/Ro to BC, train to Halifax. Didn't arrive until late Sept. Updates as to where the car was or when it was going to arrive, were non-existant. I HATE the waiting game! -all of the paperwork was not provided. The original export cert. was not given to me...and the DMV wanted to see the original, plus an officially translated copy. JDMachines was unable to help me with this, so I had to go right to Monky's Inc with an email campaign. Monky's broken english emails basically stated that they had an audit by the government and that all of their paperwork was siezed. GREAT! Somewhere along the way, I managed to get a PDF of the Ex. Cert and printed off in color, on thick card stock, then paid to have it officially translated. I tried many times at the DMV, with nothing but rejection. After 1.5 years of trying, I finally got the right person, at the right time...and she put it through. I almost jumped the counter and kissed her. Many happy years later...it's all in the past and it's happily sitting in the garage, waiting for salt-free roads, so that it can finally roll over 90k km. More on this thing later...I need a break... Let me try some old pictures first: Sure Flickr...whatever you say! http://www.flickr.com/photos/115536662@N02/12155957234/ Shit son! This worked...how did I make it work?
