What Makes A Car A Classic?

The Antique Automobile Club of America defines classic cars as those over 25 years old. One that’s rare or of particular historic interest (say one that belonged to a famous person or was involved in a noteworthy incident) are also becoming more popular. 

To help you begin or improve your classic car fleet, ask yourself these questions:

1.Decide where your cars will be kept. Your home garage? How many cars can you actually store there? Most people keep them parked in their driveway or garage.

2.What kind of cars do you want to buy? Certain years, makes, sizes? Read books and get catalogs about classic cars and research them online.

3.Are your friends or neighbors classic car enthusiasts? Would you like them to be? Many local meet ups happen up & down the country where friends/neighbors meet up and drive their cars. Great activity to do during this pandemic.

How to Get a Classic Car

You can buy vehicles from private owners, but it’s generally easier and probably safer to get your classic car from people  that specializes in selling them. One effective and entertaining way to get into classic car collecting is through a company called Clasiq. They offer free pre-purchase inspection from an independent shop on every vehicle (so nasty surprises) and a free, secure payment process that protects your funds, all through a truly independent classic car auction experience built by the collector community for the collector community.
