Welcome to Classic Motor History

At Classic Motor History, it is our intention to provide you with as much information relating to the classic motors of the world.  We don't just look at cars, we look at trucks and bikes too.  It is a real shame that many of the manufacturers have gone, even some of the cars have gone, but fortunately there are many that still survive and are still being driven, just as they were meant to be be when they first rolled off the lines.

 

Our aim is to promote classic motors and ensure that everybody appreciates them and that they continue to run.

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.

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, even tax discs all help to provide a picture of where the car has been and how it managed to survive.

Do you own and drive a classic, 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.

New Car Tax Rules

Since the budget, there's been plenty of talk about the changes to tax for privately-owned cars that will now come into force in 2017. These changes have been introduced to combat the Government's dwindling tax take as new cars become cleaner. At the moment, cars are not subject to any tax at all if they emit less than 100g/km - and more cars are fitting into that category. The new rules will not affect cars registered before 1 April 2017, and won't be applied retrospectively.
