Now that the new Speedhunters.com is up and running, I figured it was time to give the comments section a workout with a proper discussion. The question is: what makes a classic car? I constantly find myself struggling to grasp that many of the cars I once considered modern are now nearing 20 or 30 years old. But does that alone make these cars classics? Is it a simple matter of age? Is it a matter of value? A matter of rarity? Something else? Is a 1987 Mazda RX-7 a classic? How about a 1975 four-door Buick?
It’s a question that probably has no definitive answer, but I’m very curious to hear what your definition of what a classic car is.
