Now this topic is a golden opportunity for a bit of fun, perhaps even a contest?


Completely Reconstructed Vehicle (or at least mine is...CRV vs. Durango @ 35mph...CRV loses...just in case you were wondering)

Can Run on Vapors (I'm suprised I haven't burned out my gas warning light yet, it gets frequent use)

Crappy Rundown Vehicle

Caution: Ruthless Vagrant

Can't Retain Value

Catastrophe Rendering Vehicle

Compelling Reason to Vomit

Crazy Ravishing Vixen

Constant Ridicule Victim

Cheerfully Retrieving Vodka

i'm spent....somebody impress me with some more Click the image to open in full size.

I was always under the impression that the Japanese had the CR-V name meaning "Civic Renaissance model Van" sort of like the CR-X was the "Civic Renaissance model X". I'm almost positive that I read this somewhere.
