Nice pics thus far... now my question is this:

Is there a difference between "classic" and "antique"?

I think there is... but it could be semantics however... :tongue:

Ummm...

Thanks Bow Tie, but that still doesn't answer my question...

Let me put it this way, is a 1957 Chevy a classic or an antique?
What about a 1937 T-Bird? Classic or antique? :raspberry:

Don't mind me, I'm just playing the role of shit-disturber today... :poke:

Their both! Classic and Antique is just a nice way of saying something is old!

Example-To me CdnGMan is a classic! Or Antique....which ever floats your boat! :raspberry::rotfl:

Just look at it this way, we are all classic or antique as we are always older than someone! I take being a classic as a compliment...antique may get your head bitten off :biggrin: :wink:

See, I don't even have to try anymore... You do all the work for me!! Good Doggie! :raspberry:

Now. I need to find out what "considerably" means.

You need to watch what you post my good friend! :rotfl:

To answer anyone's questions:

Antique car. An antique car is a classification that is often set by state law. States often have a special type of license plate for these cars. For that reason they set rules stating what qualifies as "antique." In most cases it is a car that's over 45 years old. Generally the car should be maintained in a way that keeps it true to the original manufacturer specifications

Classic car. This classification definitely overlaps with antique cars. The definition of classic car is actually quite similar to that of antique cars. A car must be at least 20 years old, but not more than 40 years old to be considered a classic car. It should again have been repaired and maintained in a way that keeps it true to its original design and specifications. In other words it should not be modified or altered. In addition, many add a stipulation that the vehicle should have been manufactured no earlier than 1925. For these reasons all classic cars are also antique cars, but not all antique cars are classic cars

Vintage car. There is also overlap between vintage cars and antique cars. Some vintage cars quality as antique cars, but not all vintage cars are antique and vice versa. Different groups set different cut off points for what qualifies as a vintage car and what does not. Generally, cars that are considered Vintage were manufactured between the years of 1919 and 1930, but some end it at 1925. Unlike the other two classifications, having had modifications does not necessarily keep a car from being a vintage car


Good luck all!

Greg, for the record, I'm still considered a "Classic" in car years. :tongue:

It's good to see that you're that concerned about me and my apparent forgetfulness, but that's hardly the case...

IMO there's a distinct difference between the two and I simply wanted clarity... but with the "interpret at your leisure" thought process, there's no sense in :deadhorse:
That said, I don't give a shit, but was looking to play devil's advocate... I'm done. Thanks. :coffee:
