Honda 600-800/CRX/Civic 1964-2008

Compact Hondas of most kinds are affordable and offer interesting motoring.

Exceptions to the ‘affordable’ rule are the quirky S600 and S800 sports cars that in excellent and basically original order will usually cost $30,000+.

Against them from a different era is the 1.6-litre CRX costing $9000-12,000 and the faster and much more modern Civic Type R. These may be imported privately from Japan or post-2007 cars that were sold locally.

Which Honda in the longer term is more likely to appreciate is hard to determine, but if we had an early CRX we’d be keeping it.

1970s Civics are becoming a little easier to find and values for very good cars are climbing towards $6000, however 1985-91 versions are still cheap.

Honda S600/800 $33,660 [5]
