Perhaps the first step is defining what is meant by 'classic.'
I've heard everything from age to wooohooo! In my limited
sphere of influence, a classic is:
o Older (pre '80s?
o Possibly a limited production run or currently limited number
o Terrific design lines
o Good driving car with predictable manners
o Good Wooohooo factor
Examples of classics: MGs, Triumphs (sorry), Aston Martins,
Jaguars, Ferraris, Lambos, Lotus (what is the plural of Lotus
anyway?), Lancias, BMWs, the NSX, '60s Mustangs,...
Example that are NOT and never will be classics: Mini vans,
'80's GM cars, Crown Vics, Impalas -- even the one that is
supposed to be a classic (classic taxi cab, I'd say), most
post '70s Japanese cars, etc.
