There's already a rather large thread about this subject in the Asian import section, only it's about Muscle Vs Imports in general, I'm sure if everyone responded to this it would look identical lol

Personally, I have never liked Novas, OR CRX's. But if I had to pick between the two, I would take the CRX. I know the Nova is much faster, but I like a car that is more conservative on gas, plus I am more familiar with the engine pattern. I wouldn't trade my Integra for either. Unless the Nova was real nice and I could get around 10k for it .

Cliffy, this is rather differant than the other post, he just asks for your oppinion on both..

Cliffy, I actually posted at the same time as you, and then edited when I saw yours, LOL.

Screw gas mileage? I'd love to be able to drive a 7mpg car, but I can't afford it. Besides, Muscle just isnt my style.

I'd have to agree with Voda. Though gas prices are starting to kick my ass.

I'm sure there are lots of people who can't decide between a Nova and a CRX. I mean the cars are so much alike, they're almost identical.

Honestly, you're looking at not just two different cars but two different worlds. It looks to me like you need to do a little bit of soul searching and decide what you want from a car and what kind of compromises you're willing to make. Figuring out how much money you have to spend might be helpful too.
