What Is a Classic Car, Anyway?

What you’re about to read here is not actual investment advice or a suggestion that you buy any of these cars to save for later; it’s mere speculation on our part, based on what we know about what makes a car a classic. A Google search will turn up lots of conflicting definitions from experts. The Classic Car Club of America maintains a list of specific makes and models, for example, while some insurance companies that offer specialized coverage are happy to take your money as long as your “classic car” is old, well-maintained, and sees limited use pertaining mostly to the act of car-collecting itself.

So, where does that leave us? With a lot of leeway. Some of our future classics are limited production, while others are mass-market. Some were chosen based on intuition, while others are modern versions of cars that already qualify for classic status. In our search for future classics, we bypassed the hordes of crossovers and SUVs and stuck mostly to actual cars, with one exception. Now, let’s take a closer look at these potential future collectibles.
