 What To Look for in a Classic Car

Avoid too much rust damage.
While some rust damage isn't a big deal and can be fixed, use your best judgment when deciding how much you want to invest in a vehicle that is COVERED in rust. We're an experienced car restoration shop and we can tell you that rust can be fixed to an extent typically, however, the best thing to do int his situation is if you see a classic car you are very interested in but it has rust on it, call your reliable classic car restoration shop and send photos, ask what a round about quote would be to fix something like this up.

Get an auto insurance quote before purchasing.
Whether you plan to really drive the classic car or just show it off in car shows, you will still need an insurance policy taken out on it. You may be surprised to find that insurance can be really affordable for classic cars but you should still call your insurance company BEFORE purchasing the classic car just so you have an idea of what you'll be spending and you're not caught off guard.

Make sure you get the vehicle inspected.
You may not be planning on driving this classic car but you should still get it inspected by a mechanic who knows what they're doing. Again, this is an investment so get your money's worth.

Be aware of the mileage.
Take a look at how many miles are on the car. It's a classic car, so it's likely a used car and high mileage isn't necessarily bad, but you should make sure that you're not overpaying and that if there is a high amount of miles that you're not overpaying.
