Older cars are usually grouped based on the year that they were made like the vintage cars or the veteran cars and these cars were built before 1930. But a Car which was built after the 1930 and till date is all from the post vintage and are considered modern. Amongst the many classic cars, the cars that are accepted in this category are MGB’s, Riley’s, old Jags, Triumphs and similar cars. But sometimes you even see the Toyota and the Opel Manta displayed which are not really classic cars but car enthusiasts choose to display them.
However many car enthusiasts argue about the standard definition of a classic car and they definitely like to promote their cars and the cars that interest them. Each person has their own parameters to judge. But for any classic car getting the car parts is a big challenge. The only place you can look for classic car parts are from people who own similar cars or from the cars which are classic but they are not well maintained and have been trashed. You may get the part you want in a good shape. The chances of finding car parts for a classic car can be extremely difficult.
That is why people who own vintage classic cars do not attempt to drive their precious possession frequently. The only time they probably will take out their cars is when there is a classic car road show or if classic cars are being exhibited. Because if they drive it everyday and should there be any repairs they are never going to find the car parts. So it is better they are kept locked up and maintained well.
