Welcome to Classic Motor History
The exact meaning of a classic motor is varied around the world, but most state that it should be between 20 and 40 years old to be a classic and anything over 45 years old to fall into antique. For others it is purely the look of a motor that constitutes the term.
At Classic Motor History, it is our intention to provide you with the information relating to all the classic motors of the world. We don't just look at cars, we look at ALL vehicles. Very sadly, many of the manufacturers have gone, even some of the cars have gone, but fortunately many still survive, and are still driven, just as they were meant to be when they first rolled off the lines.
Do you own and drive a classic, or are you restoring one, or maybe you're just an enthusiast, we hope you enjoy this site, which is aimed at all classic motor enthusiasts.
We want to promote classic motors and ensure that everybody appreciates them and that they continue to run.
Knowing where a vehicle has been all its life can add to the interest in owning it. It helps to place the vehicle within the history of the 20th century. There are many good reasons for tracing a vehicles history. It is a well known fact that selling a vehicle, with a lengthly and informative history, makes it more valuable and easier to sell. Old receipts, photos, insurance papers, tax discs all help to provide a picture of where the car has been and how it managed to survive.
