For you older members, remember this beast? My baby. Purchased brand new in 1995. ONE owner for 20 years. Drivin by 4 other people but I have owned it since day 1. Shes gone...just got the news this past weekend while I was on vacation in Florida.

Let me back up a little over 3 years ago. My family and I moved to Knoxville TN and at the time I could not bring the car with me. A "friend" of mine agreed to store the car for an amount of time we never talked about. I contacted him some time last year to let him know "to do what you need with it if its in your way". Apparently that means chop it up and scrap it for parts. Some mis-understanding I guess.

So I finally got back to FL for a vacation and stopped by his house to arrange pick-up. I had tried to call him several times with no reply. Now I know why...He "gave away" the interior to some guy, the doors and fender to another and the rear quarters were cut off for another project. I cried for a day I kid you not. 1 owner 95 eg hatch near mint scrapped for parts. Granted it had no motor or trans but the inside was there and minty clean as well as the body. But shes gone now. Can we have a moment of silence for the ol hatchy :(

Damn dude, that was hard to read. I cant imagine what it would be like to lose a 20 year old project, especially having bought it new. Im sure you have a lot of memories with that car.

My suggestion would be to take whatever you can from it, something to remember it by to put into future Honda projects. Let it live on in that way.

This is all that remains. Yup, that's the factory 13's that came on the car. He turned them into plant potters. Unfuckingbelievable.

I kinda felt this way, not to this extent mind you, when my dad "lost" my CRX. He is a mexican with a HUGE backyard, he had like 15 cars parked back there with room for at least 10 more, asked him if it was ok if I left it there for a while and he said it was fine, so I left him the key if he needed to move it.

6 months later I called and said I need to come get my car....
Leo: Ohhhh I lost that...

Joel: How do you loose a car? It was parked in your fenced in back yard behind like 5 other cars...

Leo: Well I needed room so I was storing it in a big self storage, one day I needed to get to something so I moved your car out into the storage driveway and went to get lunch and I got distracted and when I came back it was gone!

Joel: How long were you gone?

Leo: Only a couple of days, turned out the owner of the storage had it towed because it had expired tabs and was kinda in the middle of the road.

Joel: Did you try to get it out of the impound lot?

Leo: Yea, but you need to be the legal owner to do that.

Joel: So why didnt you call me?

Leo: Seemed like too much effort.

Joel: How long ago was this?

Leo: A few months...

Joel: So let me get this straight, you have apparently got more then 10 new cars since I was there 6 months ago, so you pushed, pulled, or dragged at LEAST 5 not running cars out of the way to drive out my TINY running CRX, to make room for putting more cars in your back yard, and you rented a large storage unit to put my CRX in, then got it out one day you abandoned it in a driveway for a few days, then when you found out it had been towed you just said fuck it becuse it was too much work to call me?

Leo: Yea.... more or less....

Joel: So how much did you REALLY sell the CRX for? Because I hope you know it was worth at least 3-4k.

Leo: My escort isnt even worth that much! And it was at least 5 years newer then your honda! Besides, I lost it, I didnt sell it....

Joel: Sure dad.... Sure...

So a non running car sat for two year and then you tell him to do whatever a year ago?

Sorry, but to most that is an another abandoned car.

"to do what you need with it if its in your way"
Yea, to be fair, if somone had left their car with me for 2 years then called me and told me that, then didnt say anything else about the car for a year, I would assume it was mine to dispose of however I wanted. If he didnt have the title, chopping it up to get rid of it was about the only option available.

Does suck though.

with no drivetrain

sad yes

stupid even more

I wouldn't trust anyone for 3 years. there came a point in time where it was no longer yours and turned over to his. most likely the exact moment you said "to do what you need with it if its in your way" I would assume a judge would agree

sorry op but if this happened to me it would be my fault for trusting a douche

but regardless even if you gotta steal them the flower planters would be mine
