As far as the CCCA (Classic Car Club of America), a vehicle can be said is classic if it was built or produced during 1925 – 1948 and if it includes engine displacement, power clutch, automatic lubrications and other items. Many owners request to be part of this group and special considerations are taken in order to verify and classify the car as classic. Although the CCCA is a world known club, not every country follows its regulations and to avoid confusions the terms CCCA Classic and Full Classic have been adopted.
Some of the most famous cars that showcase at these popular car shows are the Chevrolet Bel-Air, Ford T-Bucket, Dodge Charger, Chevrolet Deuce Coupe, and the 1949 Ford. The reason why there are so many people eager to own one of these cars and it started to be an honor to own one of these cars is because it is considered that car model production declined dramatically as of 1989, therefore all cars are very similar in shape and model between all companies.
Although these cars are in high demand nowadays, they are not street smart. Meaning these cars do not have insurance requirements for passenger safety. Classic car owners must be very careful when driving these vehicles as a simple and soft crash can be fatal. Some states don’t allow at all the circulation of these cars on the street to avoid any severe accidents.
Because they have great acclaim and many car shows sponsor these cars, many owners ship these cars nationwide throughout the whole year. Shipping a classic car is very expensive as it must be shipped via enclosed carrier to offer the maximum security and protection to the vehicle while in transit. They need to be safely mounted and attached to carriers to have the least movement as possible inside the carrier. It is very important to describe the full make, model and year of a classic car to agent during booking as classic cars have very different models and proper arrangements need to be made in order to safely strap the car to the carrier without causing any damage to the car.
Give your agent as much detail as possible regarding your car, that way you will be able to have a smooth car transport experience and have a spotless classic to awe many viewers at your next classic car show.
