So, does it have an M113 or a 5.0?

I like that the hood, and the grille both have ford emblems on it , all about that attention to detail.

How do you explain this car to your insurance adjuster after you bang up the front end? Is he pricing the claim based on Mercedes parts, or Mustang parts?

It's staggering enough that someone came up with the idea, but to actually put, time, effort and money into it boggles the mind.

The sad part is the CRX was a pretty sweet little car back in its day. You NEVER see them around anymore.
