Classic

adjective;
A favorable reminiscence of an idea or memory Classic originally means having a lasting significance or worth, so its not hard to see how the original meaning came to be the new definition. If something has a lasting significance, that means its going to have been remembered. And, when using the word classic, the things and ideas that are usually brought to mind are all positive, with hardly any negative aspects. As such, any activity that is remembered fondly, is a prime candidate for being considered classic. The new meaning is now so firmly rooted in our vocabulary that people have trouble recalling the original definition of the word, even though the shift in meanings happened fairly recently.
 
Woah, that trip was classic!
