    85 Years Ago the CRV of its Day had a new Engine Design. An interesting high quality video worth your time. This was during the Great Depression when a speeding ticket could be paid off with a bushel of potatoes or a couple of chickens. It is an hour, but if you want to watch some "off...

Since its an LX, I wonder if its indicative of the 2013/2014 EX/EX-L having direction flashers? If so this is one feature I will pay to have updated on my 2012. :)
