Now and then, a number of classic car owners will bring their Classic Cars together for a classic car show. Classic cars can be worth quite a lot of money, therefore, most classic car owners have some sort of classic car insurance. When it comes to taxes and insurance, the way we define a classic car becomes very important.
Whatís a Classic Car? There are many different definitions of a classic car depending on whom you ask. Some say that any old car kept in good working condition is a classic car. Others claim that a classic car can only be a car that was made between 1925 and 1948. For the very serious classic car collectors, a classic car may only include cars that were made before 1948 and also have special classic car characteristics, such as classic car upholstery, finishes, brakes, and so on. Some also say that only certain models should be called classic cars. For these classic car elites, thereís a classic car club of America that sets the standards. So how do you know if that broken down car on your lawn is a classic car? Ask someone at the classic car club.
Classic Car Trader
People who own classic cars take a lot of pride in restoring and maintaining their classic car. Though classic cars are very expensive, there are those that collect classic cars and use a classic car trader service to trade Classic Cars with other Classic Car owners. If I were looking to trade my classic car for another classic car, I would go to Cuba. Americans canít use a Cuban classic car trader but Canadians could take advantage of some of the beautiful classic cars that Cuba has to offer. Because the United States have cut off trade with Cuba, Cubans have had to make do with the same cars theyíve been using since the fifties. Because a lot of these cars are from before the war and because theyíre in great condition, Cuba has one of the greatest collections of Classic Cars in the world. This must drive American classic car traders crazy. Instead, American classic car traders trade classic cars with each other. For me, a classic car trader doesnít make sense unless you have a massive collection of classic cars. The average classic car owner must put a lot of work into restoring their classic car, and to trade their classic car for someone elseís classic car would mean losing a piece of themselves. Thatís why itís especially hard for a classic car trader to sell a classic car.
Classic Cars for Sale

Beware; classic cars for sale that havenít been restored usually need a lot of work and classic car expertise.

Classic Car Insurance
Classic car owners invest a lot of time and money in their classic cars. Some even drive their classic cars around town. Imagine of someone were to ding your classic car in a parking lot. It would cost far more to fix than most cars. Thatís why thereís special insurance for Classic cars called classic car insurance. Classic car insurance is for classic cars that meet specific classic car criteria. Classic car insurance rates also depend on the classic car model and the year the classic car was built. So basically, classic cars cost a lot of money. One advantage however, is that some classic cars of a certain age are tax-free. You might even use the money you save on classic car tax to buy classic car insurance. And as far as insurance goes, can you ever have too much classic car insurance? Really?
Classic Car Show
The greatest classic car collectors often display their classic cars in a classic car show. Classic car shows are common in the United States as well as Canada. While many of the visitors to classic car shows are classic car owners or classic car traders, a lot of these classic car shows are open to the public. Sometimes you can even find classic cars for sale at classic car shows, if their owners are willing to part with their classic cars. Keep in mind that classic cars for sale come with a lot of extra expenses, including classic car insurance, as discussed. Classic car shows are often held outdoors in the summer or indoors in bad weather. The last thing a classic car owner wants is to get rained out a classic car show. Many classic cars werenít sealed like they are today and water would damage the classic carís interior. Thatís why classic car owners keep their classic cars in garages when theyíre not at classic car shows.
