Top Five Reasons to Buy a Classic Car

When you are cruising down the road, you invariably see some cool classic cars, and if you are anything like me you may feel the urge. It sure would be nice to have some options when you have a Saturday off and you want to go for a cruise.

This is natural, but then the doubts start to creep in. You come up with various reasons you shouldn't take the plunge. You may decide  it is an extravagance, and you already have transportation. The money can be better spent elsewhere, yada, yada, yada.

It's easy to tell yourself why you shouldn't have something that you want. In this post, we will look at the other side of the equation.

Here are the top five reasons you should buy a classic car.

Reason #1
Since you have to get over your logical objections, there is a very practical reason to purchase a classic car: they typically go up in value. Everyone is looking for sound investments, but you can't drive your stock portfolio. You can enjoy your investment in a classic car whenever you get behind the wheel.

Reason #2
A classic car is going to tell a historic tale. When you understand the history of the vehicle, you gain an added layer of satisfaction. You are keeping something of value alive, and people can see that history in action every time you drive past.

Reason #3
Classic cars are fun to drive, it's as simple as that. Life is short, and you should grab all of the fun that you can while you have the chance. Shaquille O'Neal once called the concept “sucking the marrow from the bone of life.”

Reason #4
We have all seen amazing classic cars that have sold for hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. If you have that kind of money, you have many options.

On the other hand, there are classic cars that can be purchased on any reasonable budget. Those who have a knack for restoration can put in sweat equity and get great value. Short of this, you can probably find a classic car that is in good shape that you can afford.

Reason #5
Classic car owners have a lot of opportunities when it comes to socializing and camaraderie. There are all sorts of classic car events going on at all times, and you can always keep your social calendar full when you have a classic ride in the garage.

Reason #6 - I just love the look of Classic cars! They don't have to be the most expensive classic cars but also cheaper models can look great. That would be a very good reason I must say to buy a classic car.
Just for touring a little bit around the area you live. No super long drives but just to relax life a bit.
