What is a classic car - the ultimate $64,000 question. In 46 years in/around the motor industry I have never seen a definition of 'classic car'.
In fact, does the term relate to 'a car' or the 'design/model'.
For example, most would agree that the Morris Minor 1000 is a classic/iconic design, but does this mean every example of a MM is a classic car? I would say not.
Insurance brokers generally sell classic policies for vehicles 20 years+ old - but surely some vehicles reaching 20 are not 'classic' in design or per car.
The HMRC treat cars over 15 years old with a market value greater than the list price and worth at least £15,000.
The Puma is not generally regarded as a 'classic' design and is not really a classic car - but if it has a comprehensive history, is in good order (does not need to be perfect), in an acceptable colour etc then it may have a market. Sadly, even if mothballed for 10 years the modern classics soon start to lose value if put back into daily use.
