HISTORIC VEHICLES EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE TOPIC
Our partner FIVA, the World Classic Car Association, offers us a factual definition of a historic vehicle: it must be at least 30 years old (15 years for classicparts4you.com), preserved and maintained in a historically correct condition and not used as a daily means of transport. This definition allows us to exclude old, poorly maintained cars, which are driven until they fall apart. Of course, for all of us who own a historic vehicle, it's a lot more - it's part of our technical and cultural heritage and often an object of desire in itself. Owners of a historic vehicle preserve the heritage of this highly-esteemed cultural asset. They not only provide themselves, but also many astonished passers-by, with incomparable pleasure, when they proudly show their vehicle in public.
The agony of choice
As young as the automotive history is, it has already produced so much variety: we can distinguish between the individual vehicle types in terms of their use, between the many excellent brands with their - at least formerly - very characteristic designs and much more: The car alone shows an enormous variety: sedan, station wagon, coupe, convertible, three- or five-door, diesel or gasoline, sports or SUVs ... We all still remember the popular car playing cards from our childhood, which introduced us in a playful way to the world of mobility and seduced us forever.
Our focus is on historic vehicles, which somewhat limits the automotive universe. Nevertheless, there is a lot of knowledge and experience to be gained - for beginners, enthusiasts and owners!
