3 Questions To Ask Yourself Before Buying a Classic Car


Owning a classic car isn't a cheap hobby by any means! If you're going to invest in a classic car, you should do some research on the potential upkeep and maintenance costs. The last thing you want to do is spend the money to have your dream car restored only to not realize just how much maintenance and upkeep it takes and how costly that can be to keep it in like new condition. Ensure that you get a solid idea of all upkeep and maintenance costs, which include (but are not limited to) rust protection, weatherproofing, and so on.


Don't just buy an old beater that's been sitting uncovered in someone's backyard for the last twenty years because it's cheap. A severely rusted out car won't be worth the trouble. If you see a bubble or two on a quarter panel, that wouldn't be much of a problem to fix. However, when you can see through the trunk and floors and the sides are all eaten up, there comes a point when your money is better spent finding a nicer car.


Before buying your next classic car, it's really important to think about what your goals are and what you plan to do with it once you get it. What do you want from this automobile when the project is finished. Do you plan to make it your play car or will you be reselling it? Restoring a car for investment purposes will play a big role in deciding your purchase. How often do you plan to drive it and will you be proudly showing it off at car shows? By asking yourself these questions, you'll more easily be able to determine what's truly important to you when it comes to restoration needs. These questions can also help you to decide on what car to get!
