    any car with an non-synchronized reverse will exhibit this.
    the solution is to stop the rotation of the input shaft before shifting into reverse.
    You can accomplish this by simply shifting into any forward gear momentarily before going to the reverse gear.
    Step on clutch,
    shift into any forward gear,
    shift into reverse.
    This eliminates the "crunch"

    This might not eliminate the occasional not being able to enter reverse. In this case:
    shift into neutral,
    release clutch,
    step on clutch,
    shift into another forward gear (different from the one you picked earlier, this will move the teeth enough to overcome the blocking)
    shift into reverse.

    Anything that moves the input shaft a slight amount will eliminate the blocking of reverse.

    First to Reverse works good. Or if you are parking, put it in reverse and then turn off engine. I find that going in reverse when you first turn on the car is the most difficult.
    Not all who wander are lost
