At what ages does a car have to be to be considered a classic and an antique?
The Classic Car Club of America (CCCA) founded in 1952 defines a Classic car as:
"... a Fine or Distinctive automobile, American or foreign built, produced between 1925 and 1948."
A Classic was high-priced when new and was built in limited quantities. All Alfa Romeos, Mercers, Austro-Daimler, Horches, and Blackhawks are considered Classics.
The Antique Automobile Club of America defines an antique car as one built over 25 years ago. The legal definition for the purpose of driving and registration varies from state to state.
A New Jersey man recently discovered that his 1942 Mercedes-Benz 320 Cabriolet D convertible was registered to Adolph Hitler in Germany and belonged to one of his generals. Only eight of these vehicles were ever produced and all owners were members of the Third Reich.
