I happen to be a guy that has spent his life enjoying classic cars. My desire started at the tender age of 12 with a 1937 Chevy pickup. You see in the state of Montana you can get a drivers license at the age of 12 for daylight hours to drive to school if there are not any school buses. This law is still on the books today and most new drivers license's are issued in eastern Montana. More to come in the future.
I love some of the classic cars. It's great that you have a passion.
12? that is interesting. i love cars too, and am fascinated with American 'muscle' cars...
classic cars are great...but even better are classic trucks. Do you still have the '37 Chevy?
What is interesting is that American Manufacturers made cars "back in the day" that could be come classics.
Then the 70's came along. What will be considered a classic from that point forward?
I have an Olds and a Pontiac from the 70's as well as a 72 Ford pickup. I consider them classics as well. If its 30 years old or older, its classic to me.
A very good question. A few cars stand out because of limited production runs. First of all, I can't think of any from the time of the gas crisis in the mid-70's until the early 1980's. Starting in 1981 there's the DeLorean DMC-12, which was pretty much a classic the moment it came off the line. Then in the mid-1980's there's the Buick Grand National (and even better the Grand National GNX). A black muscle car from Buick that is sure to be desirable well into the future. In the 1990's there's the Dodge Viper, which was radically different than anything being sold at the time. There was also the influx of Japanese cars that might someday be considered classics, like the Acura NSX. Then there's cars like the Plymouth Prowler, which wasn't very well received by consumers but might be rare enough to someday demand a premium.
One of my favorites, until I wrecked it, was the Dodge Challenger. Great car but very finicky
I would love to have a GNX. A friend of mine had two Grand Nationals, and they were incredible cars. Both were stolen and subsequently wrecked. I've had an '84 Camaro that I built up from nothing and an '04 GTO (my first car was a 1980 Jeep Wagoneer), but I think my true interest remains in the pre-ECU General Motors muscle cars. I really like the exterior of the 2010 Camaro and the LS3 is an incredible engine, but seeing a plastic engine cover in a crammed engine bay is so... disappointing.
I have a 1970 Camaro my dad gave me when I went to college..I think the guys wanted to date me to drive the car more than for me.....I never let them drive it...
I'm going to get a 2010 Camaro this spring...and hope to get a 1967-69 someday too..I'll need a bigger garage!
someone recently kept saying to me - i cant understand it, for a girl, you really like cars.. Ive never met a girl who has such an interest in cars as you do...
then I was looking up family history and found cecil.. cecil created the MG sports car, died an early death in 1945 ... and cecil is a relative, who I now know why about so many things. Why my grandfather always drives everywhere..why my father is blind and would have dark moments and had a fascination with trains staying on track..
(cecil died in a train accident apparently.... ) My brother drives like a magician and studied in oxford... MG sports started in Oxford.. odd links that tie family together and make sense of things you never thought meant anything.
So, now I have to get an mg..
Right now any rear wheel drive manual transmission car is HOT!!!
Barracuda's Challengers Chargers all Mopar from the 70's is a highly desired car.
Lots of Classics from the 70's
Best muscle car to buy used is a Corvette. Corvette's do appreciate in value. About 6% a year.

whoopp...i like american muscle car a lot..makes man a man..
long stroke, big power..even consume a lot fuel and drive global warming nuts..
The car I'm keeping a lookout for - a 1967 Mustang convertible.
My hubby is a mailman and he has a guy on his route that has 3 Mustangs in his driveway - a 1965, 1966, and 1967. The 1967 isn't a convertible but he was gonna get it for me anyway - the guy won't sell it - yet. It's in great condition & well maintained. I'm patient though - give me time

Where are the classic cars of tomorrow going to come from?I don't think any of today's cars will become classics, no matter how "kewl" people now think they are. To be a classic, a car has to be repairable. Parts have to be available. Where are the little computer gizmos...

Many people have antique and classic cars. They want appraisal of their cars. Who can do this?
