What makes a car classic?

Generally, a vehicle needs to be at least 20 to 30 years old to be considered a classic. However, it can vary depending on the country or the specific car club or organization making the determination.

While the definition of a classic car can vary, there’s also often a subjective element to it. Enthusiasts and collectors may have their own criteria for what makes a car a classic.

What are the legal requirements for driving a vintage vehicle?

Here are a few things that might be required. Always check with your local and state government to make sure you’re within the law.

Special Registration: Many regions offer special registration for vintage or classic vehicles. This can come with benefits like lower fees or exemptions from some standard requirements.

License Plates: Some places issue special license plates for vintage cars, which might have restrictions attached, such as usage for only events, parades, or as a collector’s item.

What are the best ways to store a vintage vehicle?

Storing a vintage vehicle properly is crucial to preserving its condition and value. Here are some of the best practices for storing a vintage car and here’s some storage tips if you don’t have a garage:


Climate Control

  • Temperature and Humidity: Store the vehicle in a climate-controlled environment to prevent rust and deterioration. Ideal conditions usually involve moderate temperatures and low humidity.

Cleanliness and Protection

  • Clean Before Storing: Thoroughly clean the car inside and out to remove any dirt, grime, or substances that could corrode the paint or interior while in storage.
  • Cover the Vehicle: Use a breathable car cover to protect the vehicle from dust and scratches. Avoid plastic covers as they can trap moisture.

Fluids and Fuel

  • Change the Oil: Change the oil and filter before storing the car. Used oil contains contaminants that could harm the engine.
  • Fuel Stabilizer: Add a fuel stabilizer to the gas tank and fill it up. This prevents the fuel from degrading and protects against rust in the fuel system.

Battery Maintenance

  • Battery Care: Disconnect and remove the battery to prevent drain. Store it in a cool, dry place and consider using a trickle charger to maintain its charge.

Tire Preservation

  • Prevent Flat Spots: Inflate the tires to the recommended pressure to avoid flat spots. For long-term storage, consider placing the vehicle on jack stands to take the weight off the tires.
