About This Quiz

Classic car collectors are a strange lot. They pay huge sums of cash for older cars with questionable engineering, often after decades of use or abuse have rendered useless much of their underpinnings. On the other hand, Jaguar recently built as new a race car of theirs from the 1960s, but the collectors cried foul because, while it was functionally the same car, it had no history behind it, no provenance. It was like getting a reproduction of a Monet, not a Monet itself.

Beyond that, many classic car collectors' decisions make little sense. Few of them buy classic cars for their practicality or fuel efficiency. They buy them because they speak to something deeply held, something that appeals to the soul, not the mind. Collectors who go crazy for the power of the original Ford Mustang could do better with a modern Toyota, but the Mustang pulls at them because of what it represents.

It used to be that all classics were cars from the 1920s to the 1960s, but in recent years, even cars from the 1980s and 1990s have qualified as classics and have gone under the hammer for millions. Some classic cars are so valuable, they are nearly impossible to insure, and thus, impossible to drive. Many live their whole lives on a plinth, periodically rolling in neutral onto a flatbed truck so they can go to a car show.
