Why Vintage Cars Are Still Loved By Young And Old Alike

May 5, 2008
When people think about vintage cars many people just automatically think about the 60s and 70s when hippies were around. That is not the true vintage era, the vintage era was around the 1920s and in between 1920 and 1950 is what I would call vintage cars. That is what many people consider to be vintage and that is why you will see so many vintage car clubs and so many car shows as well. Everyone that ever owned a vintage car or still has one wants to show them off and put them in a car show that is the main reason why you will see a bunch of vintage cars on the road.

If you want a vintage car and you didn't buy one back in the day then you are going to have a really hard time finding one that you like. If you really want one of these cars you are going to have to go to the junk yard and get a salvaged piece because you are not going to find anyone that wants to sell theirs. You are going to have to restore the car then you will have to make it the way that you want it so you are going to have to spend some serious cash if you really want a vintage car.

Finding all the parts and pieces that you are going to need to restore the car is going to be so hard that you might as well just build a Tee Pee instead. These car parts even if you do find them are going to be priced so high that you are going to just want to fabricate them yourself. That is why you know how to weld and just build your own vintage car from scratch. That is vintage I think and that would be the coolest thing anyone could do to make themselves a vintage car. If you wanted one bad enough then you would do anything it took to get that.

People love vintage cars because it reminds them of when they bought it and such a good time that they had in the car at the time that they bought the car. That is the main reason why I think people bought them and kept them to this day. The other small percentage of them kept the cars because they knew they would be worth serious cash flow today. Whoever thought of that is right and these cars are expensive today if you see them. Just a 60s car like a thunderbird is worth $20,000. It is crazy when you are at a car show and you see someone write a check for $40,000.

All the vintage cars that are really vintage are worth so much that only the people with real money even look at buying them. They are in the six figure digits some of them and they are so expensive that if you don't take care of them you might just want to pass.
