What does it take to be called a Classic Grill?--Part 3

As many in the Classic Grills Nation know, one of our goals is to eliminate any remaining confusion regarding what a Classic Grill actually is. After all, the CG Nation runs deep and wide, home to many opinions and proud that civility still thrives in this corner of the blog-o-sphere. So, help us help you. If you know of some Classic Grills pretenders out there, send us a photo and we will put our best and brightest on the case.

The latest chapter of the Classic Grills mystery comes from Chloe M. of San Diego, CA. Chloe writes:

Hi Grillers!
Perhaps this is the Classic Grill we are searching for? Do we finally have a winner?

 Hi Chloe and thank you for your suggestion. While we can’t shake the feeling that we are being punked right now, we will give your comment the same thorough consideration we have given to all others. With apologies to Ashton Kutcher, here goes:  Is this a Grill? If you insist on tarnishing the good name of grills everywhere, then  YES , it's OK to refer to that thing as a grill.  And is it a Classic?  NOT HARDLY .  So, is this a Classic Grill or not?  EXCUSE ME, WHAT?  To maintain our family-friendly G rating, we're choosing not to dignify that question with a response. However, we are determined to keep going until there is general agreement on what it takes to be called a  CLASSIC GRILL . Check back again soon at  AFTER HOURS  to see where this stands!

No, never, that’s just not in our DNA. Trust us.

Today’s question comes from Rachel A. of Tuscon, AZ:
