Antique Cars vs Classic Cars

These names are often used interchangeably, but there are some distinctions between the two based on their age, historical significance, and popular definitions. Here's an explanation of the difference between an antique car and a classic car:

An antique car is generally considered a vehicle over 100 years old, from the early eras of automotive history. They represent the pioneering days of automobile manufacturing and often hold significant historical value. They often feature vintage design elements, unique engineering, and limited production numbers.

A classic car encompasses a broader range of vehicles. Classic cars are usually considered to be at least 20 to 30 years old and represent a specific era of automotive design, craftsmanship, and cultural significance. Classic cars may include iconic models from the mid-20th century, such as muscle cars, luxury automobiles, or popular vehicles that have become highly desirable over time. They possess a timeless appeal featuring distinctive features and styling that define their respective eras.
