Summer Classic Cars

Summer Classic CarsInstead of driving your modern vehicle this summer, you could opt for the classic car. There are many vehicle models that were released in the twentieth century yet not all of them qualify as true classics. According to the Classic Car Club of America, a classic car is any distinctive American-made or foreign-made automobile released between 1925 and 1948.  Even so the classic car era is considered to consist of autos that were produced from 1930s to 1970s. There are even some auto shows with cars from 1973 or later that are labeled modern collectibles or exotics. Therefore, as you search for summer classic vehicles focus on those that were built between 1925 and 1972. And if you are planning a summer getaway, it will be far more satisfying to showcase a vintage ride. Old vehicles are technically superior in build because of the solid metal body rather than cheaper raw materials used in cars today like plastic. Nowadays, car manufacturers build to sell, with automated production lines to complete the most projects in the shortest time. The old car manufactures began with a sort of passion for the vehicle. It was such a thrill to customize what never existed before: a steam-powered metal box that could take you from point A to point B with the force of about 30 hps (horsepower), complete with somewhat comfortable seating.The release of a new model was almost like a work of art, something that had never been done before. Whether you want classic convertibles or custom classics, they are offered abundantly on the internet.  If you buy a vintage auto, your primary concern will be maintenance. Classic cars can be worth of a fortune and therefore a great investment. The most important thing is to shop around for the best models and makes for your ideal summer classic car.  Although there are many automobile manufacturers including Ford, Lincoln-Mercury, Buick, Chrysler, Porsche, and Cadillac, the classic Chevrolets are always trending. Some of the Chevy’s best sellers  include Camaro, Chevelle, Corvette, Nova, El Camino and Corvair among others. But if you want a vehicle that has entered the Guinness book of record, go for the 1966 Volvo P1800!
