Of the two seater varity also. Mine is a '91 CRX Si, with 120k miles. Bought it new. Extreemly reliable, holds tons of stuff and is a hell of a lot of fun to drive. I'd highly recommend the Civic line.
As far as the cargo capacity of these cars, consider this. The day before I started the job I'm in now, I filled my CRX with as much stuff as I could get in it, because I knew that it may be a few weeks before I get to offically move into my apartment. Here's a packing list:
- JVC AM/FM reciever
- JVC 6 CD changer
- JVC dual cassette deck
- 2 Advent Legacy II 10" speakers
- 19" RCA TV
- JVC VCR
- Chase lounge
- Hanging bag stuffed full of clothes
- Medium suite case stuffed full of clothes
- deflated air mattress
- 2 full size blankets
- 2 twin flat sheets
- 2 full size pillows
And I was able to see out the back and all sides clearly.
My little CRX has been an awesome second car for the three and a half years I've had my 1.9 and will continue to be an awesome second car when my 2.3 comes in at the end of this week.
I think you're on the right track!
