Why The Honda Del Sol Failed To Become The Next CRXThe Del Sol was Honda’s answer to the Mazda MX-5 and supposedly the successor of the successful CRX.
RCR drives a rare, bone-stock lovely example and share their thoughts on why this targa two-seater model failed to continue the CRX legend as well as pointing out the drawbacks such as the constantly leaking hard top.
