    Classic is a term tossed around a lot. At one time the Classic Car Club of America had defined it as "Selected models made between 1925-1948." I believe most people except the idea of a Classic Era, but the term classic is attached to just about anycar that gets a following. There are some who call a Yugo or an AMC Pacer a classic. Perosnally, I like the idea of a classic being what you love. This is even if people consider what you love a classic pile of junk.

    These days I think classics are broken into groups. The term classic is to general. What are your favorite classic sports cars pre-1970 or favorite classic luxury cars pre-1955 would be a better way to go.

    He came dancing across the water
    With his galleons and guns
    Looking for the new world
    In that palace in the sun
    On the shore lay Montezuma
    With his cocoa leaves and pearls
