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

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.
