What Type of Classic Car Will You Choose To Have Restored Next?
There are MANY different makes and models of classic cars out there, clearly. So, how do you choose which one to have restored? Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Does this car mean something to you, on a sentimental level?
- If you plan to sell this car later on, have you done any research on what it may be worth?
- Have you thought about how long it would take to restore?
These are all good things to think about when figuring out which classic car you'll buy. Our classic car restoration shop is here to give you a few tips on how to choose what type of classic car you buy in this week's blog.
HOW REALISTIC IS YOUR DREAM CAR?
What's your dream classic car or truck? Please keep in mind that dream car may not be as attainable due to many reasons: cost, availability, etc. But, maybe there's something that's comparable in style, but more affordable. Maybe parts are easier to come by and a lot less expensive. When you're making your final decision on a make and model, you really need to look at these factors.
THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO DO WITH THIS CLASSIC CAR.
Do you want to cruise around in it quite a bit or just take it to occasional car show? Whatever your answer is to this question won't necessarily dictate what kind of car to buy, but rather what shape the car should be in. For a show car it’s nice to have it as original and complete as possible. For a driver, you'll want to focus on making it road ready and safe. This will play a huge role in the budgeting factor.
HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU WANT TO SPEND ON THIS?
When you buy a classic car or truck with the hopes of having it restored to its former glory, you're choosing to spend quite a bit of money normally. So go into the idea knowing you'll be dropping some coin. But what's your maximum dollar? What can you comfortably afford to put into this project without going bankrupt? If you're not careful, these projects can really take a toll on your finances. So having a budget in place is a must. Set a budget and stick to it.
