The Search For That Elusive Classic Car
May 19, 2006
There are some people who do love to collect cars especially those classics. One of the more famous celebrities who do own a great deal of vehicles – classic or not – is Jay Leno and he has around hundreds of these vehicles in his garage, or collection. You, too, can have and start your own collection of vehicles if you do have that much money to spare. After all, you would want to have a vehicle in your collection that not only looks good but also performs and runs well too.
Classic cars are one of the most famous units that are included in car collections. If you would like to have a classic car, it is best if you know how to choose a classic that is worth buying. Knowledge could be taken from a value guide which you can buy in auto stores and some book stores. These value guides actually provide you in clear terms what various cars in various conditions are really worth. You see, two models which are similar could be worth different values.
While looking at a possible buy, consider the condition of the vehicle. Generally, these cars are rated with the scale of 1 to 5. 1 is the best condition and is includes vehicles that are the ideal car show entrants. Those that are in condition 2 could be those at car shows. As per conditions 3 and 4, they are mostly those that are constantly pampered and taken cared of. A car in condition 5 may not be drivable at all. It is important that you know these terms.
Remember that the more original parts that your vehicle has, the higher the price it will be. If the car has gone through customization like paint, carpet, wheels, engines, and grilles, the value of that car is much less compared to a car of the same model which has not yet felt any kind of customization. Rarity is also to be considered. Another factor is the color of the vehicle. You see, a red Ferrari would always sell higher compared to a brown Ferrari. So think about that.
