What is classic to all of you?
Any Crx, 1st gen or 2nd gen, in any sort of decent shape is getting hard to find, especially unmolested and in stock form.
I know we are all Crx enthusiasts, but is it or will it be a classic?
I would tend to lean towards "Yes", but in the regard of it being very low key, maybe looked at like an MG or Triumph would be.
But will it be in the same category and spoken of in the same regard as the muscle cars of the late 60's - early 70's?
Will it ever reach 510 status?

Asking this on a CRX board should yield fairly predictable results.
Not nessessarily so, we obviously all like Crx's but as stated above, SETI20, didn't think the Crx is a classic.

Classic? No.
Icon? Yes.
I am interested in hearing your explanation.

Yeah, my comment is based on the poll question's wording of "if not now, someday". Someday, it will be a classic...and I think most would agree. The newest one now is only 15 years old...but give it time.

A Jag E-type is a classic.
A model even then way ahead of it's time with superior finish, performance, and a limited number.
A CRX is a glorified grocery kart to whip around town.
However, it has aquired a huge following of enthousiasts of all ages. This makes it iconic.
Hmmmmmmm..good explanation.

I voted yes, just cause how it was worded. But I would have to agree with SETI's no bull**** answer. I usually do though, dude is pretty down to earth and says what's on his mind, not just what everyone wants to hear.

Ok, I'm done markin out now.

I think this question begs for the definition of classic. According to the DMV, a vehicle can't have classic tags until it's 25 years old. So by that standard, a CRX is not classic. (yet)

In a more common usage of the term though, whereby a vehicle that is no longer in production is highly thought of and in demand, I think that a stock CRX qualifies as classic.

I voted yes.
I think the CRX helped the whole import scene get going. Just like old muscle cars did it back in the day. A crx in good condition will sell for way more then its blue book value - that makes it a classic to me.
There have been crxes with very low mileage that sell for close to as much as a new one cost when it "rolled off the line". (I know that when you adjust for inflation, it does not come close)

The CRX is a classic, it isn't a regular Civic with a hot motor in it, it is a deadicated one off go-kart of a car. It embodies the spirit of what Honda is to me. The CRX is just as much a classic as the S2000 and the NSX.
