Antique, Classic and Vintage Cars, now to the cars and categories. Generally speaking, antique cars are those that are at least 25 years of age. Antique cars are typically not used as regular forms of transportation. Because of their advanced age, the cars are often too expensive to operate more than a few times per month.A vintage car is usually described a car built between 1919 and 1930,
although there is some debate about the ending date for this term. In the automotive industry, the period after World War I was a time of great change. Cars manufactured during this time became more practical, convenient, and comfortable than previous models.
Antique cars are sometimes called classic cars or vintage cars. However, these terms are not necessarily interchangeable. Antique cars are shown in parades, road rallies, and other special events. For thousands of people across the world, collecting antique cars is an exciting hobby that provides an opportunity to connect with other auto enthusiasts.
A classic car is a distinctive automobile produced between 1925 and 1948. Many classic cars are American-made, but a classic car can also be a foreign-built automobile. The most valuable classic cars tend to be those that were expensive at the time of release and manufactured in limited quantities.
Various awards and plaques are presented at these car shows.
