>Cars are considered "classic" at 25 years old, but a vehicle really needs that certain something to be classic.
>Everybody has their own taste, buy some are wrong
>American, European, Japanese, or whatever.
>HOWEVER, your Honda Miata doesn't count as a classic yet. 80s+ Hondas are better suited for their own generals as well. Everything else is fair game.
>Post your classic, your work on it, your hackery, and get advice.
>Any and all discussion about classics welcome, but may not necessarily generate responses; don't get butthurt.
>Period correct performance > cosmetics.
>Metal > plastic.
>Classic shitbox > modern shitbox.
>It's perfectly fine to use RTV. Ignore the haters.
>JBweld can fix almost anything
>Chevrolets are fucking gay
>If you see rust there is probably more.
>Rust and bodywork are by far the most difficult thing to repair.
>Electrical work is second most difficult.
>The hardest part of an engine swap is getting the wiring sorted out.
>Do NOT buy a classic and plan to pay somebody to work on it. You need to be able to do 90% or greater of the work or you will go broke.
>You will inevitably spend twice your budget, unless you have years of experience under your belt. If all the salty old hands agree, it's probably true.
>No one cares about your MPG
>If you can't tune a carb you might literally be retarded
