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. :doh:

Maybe this should be for a new topic but it seems the CRX started really falling apart at a certain age, like about 8 years ago.

Up here in Washington there's a lot of them for sale in 'need repair' condition, for cheap money.

I used to love the 78 - 81 Civics, the first great Hondas in the U S. I think they were better built than the CRX.

well here in california, having a historic license plate allows me to drive it to car shows or car meets plus dmv and chp inspections, and insurance places. but driving it to car shows and meets is good enough for me. no smog.

I thought everything post 1975 had to be smogged? I saw the historical plate on the DMV site, but didn't find more info about it. Got a link? Might be cause I'm on mobile.

darn sorry i read wrong somewhere. Historic registration only saves on years fees and still requires a smog test.

There is a serious push to move the year exempt to 80.

I'm wondering if a smog exempt can be possible if you insured your collector's car with the insurance and drive it under 2000 miles per year.

The problem with asking too high for these cars is that the car isn't worth that much to the bank, is you can't get a loan. Cash is king.
Not just banks, but also insurance companies. It's a big deal with the Porsche 911 community; they know their cars are worth more than 15k, but the insurance sees less than 5k. Minor accidents, like being rear-ended, will make them call the car totaled.
I got a new shell, just need to stop driving the DX so I can work on it.

I've got a filter for my mouth, it just isn't a good one.

Hey, man! Don't forget about the 2nd/3rd gen Accords! Those things are awesome. :offtopic:
