    Fujimi Honda CR-Z Mugen

    I’ve always liked the CR-Z’s styling as a sporty and stylish little hatchback – even if its performance credentials couldn’t quite cash the check its looks wrote.

I figured it was finally time to break that ice now though, since I build more car models nowadays than I do Gunpla. The OC Auto Show is…
