Classics

Classics and cars go hand in hand.  There are so many different types of classic cars.  What defines a classic car?  It could be their design, their looks, performance, or maybe someone famous had once owned it.  Limited edition cars could also be considered a classic car because there are only so many of them made. 

First I will start with antique cars.  To be antique the car must be at least 25 years old.  Antique cars can be put into three different categories.  There are saloons or sedans, commercial vehicles, or sports cars.  An antique car must be a functioning vehicle to sell it.

 A Saloon is a car that seats around 4 or 5 people with 2 or more doors, including air bags. An example would be a 1930’s jet black American sedan.  Many sports cars were made in the 1950’s and 1960’s and can be defined as a small car usually made for performance, looks, and maneuverability.    Some examples of these would be the Wilseley Hornet or a Bentley.

                 Last would be a commercial vehicle.  These can be defined as a vehicle used for carrying goods, or paying passengers.  These would be a taxi cab, a coach, or even a bus.  In the 1950’s small vans made by Ford were very popular

                I hope everyone learned a little more about classic cars!
