  • My Favoritre Quote

    'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'

    Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Classic Car Sales – What to Look Out For


i30

Buying a classic car requires as much, if not more work than getting a brand new one from the car dealers. You should always approach the transaction as a very important deal as you would probably be spending thousands of dollars in acquiring this new car.

Follow these guidelines when buying a classic car and you will enjoy getting the best deals from a classic car sale.

#1: Price Change

If you are a true lover of classic cars, you would probably be aware that the value of the car changes significantly within one or two years. For instance, the classic Mercedes Benz can easily pick up a cool $7000 for a 25 year old version but the price would greatly drop for one that is 23 years old. Make sure you know how much the car really is worth and what others are paying for the same model and make.

#2: Check for Rust

Do check for the presence of rust in important areas such as the wheels, the trunk and the joints .Different models rust in different ways and it helps to do a little research to find out what is common for the model you are interested in. It helps to get online and read reviews where possible so you can get a good idea of what to expect when dealing with a classic car

#3: Sunny Classic Cars

Are you aware that the experts recommend getting a classic car from those sunny areas of the country such as California as these cars are free from snow, which means that it tends to rust slowly than those being subjected to the harsh changing weather throughout the year. California classic cars are more expensive than classic cars from other locations.

#4: Restoration Job

Always check to see how much you have to pay for the restoration job. Sometimes, it is possible to get a car at a really low price but the restoration job to get it fixed is way higher than what you would need to pay for a classic car in good condition. Sometimes, what seems like a good deal may not be as enticing down the road when you realize just how much you have to pay to get the car restored to a workable condition.

#5: Project Car

Some cars are really beyond repairs and the owner just wants to get rid of those to avoid cluttering up their home. These cars are fun to get as they are really cheap and you can use it to create a new car project that attempt to restore the old car into a workable condition.

#6: Replacement Parts

Some classic cars are easily replaced when any of the components need to be changed. Mustang and Chevrolets are great examples and you can easily order the replacement part online or through a catalog.

Above all makes sure you know about the type and model of the classic car you are getting, Understanding how it works and how much you expect to pay for it gives you an added advantage when dealing for the best prices with your car dealer.
