Why People Still Love Classic Cars

At Farm Boy Garage we love everything with tires and a steering wheel. Who doesn’t? Today’s modern cars are great! They are making more power, faster, handle better and more economical than the classics, yet the classic muscle cars of yesteryear are in more demand than ever. Why is that? In this week’s blog, your Midwest restoration garage will explain the reasons people still love classic cars.

Had an Impact

The most popular reason a person owns the classic car they do is that the vehicle has made an impact on their life at one time or another. It might have been a car that their parents, siblings or friend had when they were younger. It could have been a car from a movie from their childhood. We all have a car or maybe a few that have always been a favorite because of a memory we have.

The Design

Walk around a car show with a car guy and he can tell you the make, model, and year by the grille, bumper or headlights because every year model was unique. Nowadays vehicles only get redesigned every few years and it is hard to tell one model year from the next. Most new cars of today all look similar.


Classic cars are simple. You can just jump in, turn the key, and hit the road. There are no distractions with buzzers, lights, or technology in your face. They are much easier to work on and don’t require an engineering degree to do so. Many classic car owners love tinkering on and upgrading their cars and it is a fun hobby.

Driving Experience

As we mentioned the less technology already compared to cars of today. Driving a classic car gives the ultimate driving experience without the assistance from computer-controlled systems like traction control, antilock brakes and such. Driving a classic is a totally unique experience.

They Are Cool

Let’s admit it, classic cars are just cool! People love seeing classics and muscle cars driving around. If you love talking cars, owning a classic is a must. You will have many people coming up to you and asking about your car anytime you take it to town.

Don’t you agree? Classic cars are just great! No matter your reasoning, owning a classic car is a fun and rewarding experience.
