If the Prelude seats are built the same way as the Civic seats (and I
think they are), a 1" square tube (either wood or metal) under the seat
frame will put you up high enough to see over the wheel. The seats in
Hondas are built for the height-challenged :-) among us. They should go
far enough forward and you'll be able to stomp down on the pedals (as
opposed to pushing ahead, as in the B).
Alternatives include the Miata (as mentioned in a previous post), the MX3
Precidia, the Honda del Sol variants, Toyota MR2s, the Corrado VR6. Then
there's the BMW Z3, but that's a whole other story. (Heard that one here!)
I've always thought of the Honda CRX as a B-GT of the eighties, but the
number of coupe-type vehicles is dwindling fast and couldn't really put a
finger on a B-GT of the nineties.
Good luck on your choice, have fun, and the best of the season to all.
