Are you thinking of adding a classic or antique car to your collection, or even purchasing a classic car for the first time? Classic and antique car collecting and restoration is a hobby practiced by people all over the world. Many celebrities even have histories for being car enthusiasts, like Jay Leno for example. He’s known of his huge collection of antique cars and motorcycles going all the way back to the early 20th century. Here are some of the top reasons to own a classic car.
If you love tinkering. What car enthusiast wouldn’t love to turn up the hood of a Model T Ford and customize it to their specifications? Or create their own unique “hot rod” from the shell of a discarded car?
If you love car shows. Classic car shows are a great way to share your love of automobiles with other like-minded people. Plus, it’s a great way to show off your pride and joy.
If you want to make a good investment. There are a high number of classic automobiles that are rising in value. Rare cars can only get rarer, and these cars just simply have a “cool” factor.
If you want to preserve history. Many car enthusiasts feel that there is a lot of history involved in each and every classic car, and letting them rust or deteriorate is causing us to lose part of our American heritage.
When you do purchase a classic car, your next step should be insuring it. Remember that a standard auto policy will not cover all the unique financial aspects of owning a classic or antique car.
