Registering it as 'historical' usually benefits no one, except the state.
In NY, you're limited on driving it, both from an insurance standpoint and from a DMV standpoint, it can't be a daily driver. It costs more to register it, and you have to register it every year.
Appraisal seems wasteful at this juncture.
The car does not have enough mainstream appeal to justify it.
Sure there are cars that sell for an insane amount, but it's not a consistent enough movement.
The Crx will always be a limited market, niche car.
I don't feel you'll see it reach astronomical numbers like you do the late 60's-early 70's muscle cars.
Sure you see insane amount of money being asked for NOS parts, or "pristine" cars, but;
1. Are they really selling?
2. If they are, it's few and far between.
The people that have the disposable income of $15k +/- to spend on a 25 yr old econobox is small.
Especially when you look at the typical Honda crowd where these "kids" spend more money on wheels/suspension when they can't afford rent, therefore usually still living with Mom or Dad or are selling off parts to make rent/child support.
