Oct 6, 2019 12:00:00 PM / by Wes

Who doesn't love one of these best classic cars? 

We all wish we could own a Stringray or a GTO, but goodness gracious are they expensive. While there are some lucky ducks out there who get to call one of these babies their own, most of us are just left to "ooh" and "ahh" at in wistful jealousy.

Which of the best classic cars would we like to own? Just check out these photos.

Each of the above offers its own unique brand of “muscle” and design aspects. And, for those muscle car guys or gals out there, the last car on this list has been deemed the rarest American muscle car in existence. Again, if you’re in the market for one of these beasts, you better have your checking or savings account in order.

 

What’s classic car insurance like with rare cars like these?

Classic car insurance is unlike regular car insurance in almost every way. Besides the obvious similarities like liability, collision, comprehensive coverage and the like, you don’t pay monthly as you would for a new or used car. Rather, you pay when you drive, and, it’s actually cheaper. Think of it like paying a little amount each time you drive the car. The reason it’s so cheap? You don’t drive the car as much. Rarer cars would be relegated to weekend drives, if at all. Some people purchase classic or muscle cars and never drive them. I wouldn’t ever do that, because then what’s the point of buying one if you’re just going to let it sit? The joy that comes from owning a classic or muscle car is when you sit behind the wheel and feel the rumbling beneath your feet. But, to each his and her own, I suppose. The important takeaway is that classic car insurance is much more affordable than new car insurance, it’s all about which policy is best for you.


“Tell me about that classic car maintenance though.”

If I’m to use the above examples for classic car maintenance, then there wouldn’t be any. If you’re going to shell out six figures for a car, it better be maintained as a rare car should. Obviously, since they are old cars, there will be some issues that happen with every old car no matter how rare or mint-condition they are; that’s just the way it goes. But, the more money you shell out, the fewer maintenance issues you’ll have to deal with.
