Here at New Classics Club, we are dedicated to the underappreciated. First and foremost is the new group of classic cars coming from an automotive dark age. The cars that are currently celebrating their 25th and 30th anniversaries were made when gas prices and emissions standards nearly choked the entire industry of fun cars. These new classics ended the muscle car era and are sometimes viewed as pretenders to the throne. So now that even the Ford Fairmount is eligible for a collector car license plate, we feel it is our duty to make sure that some worthy silver anniversary machines get the distinction they deserve.
But that’s not all…
--Overlooked Classics recognizes the cars that get taken for granted, lived a short life, overshadowed by a sibling, or other any other reason these classics have slipped through the cracks.
--Parked Out Back recognizes cars that almost achieved greatness. These cars have sparked a lot of debate around the office, but not enough votes to be inducted…if enough readers are passionate, then maybe they’ll get inducted.
--Future Classics keeps an eye on the cars that are going to be classics once they come of age.
We also want you to share your classic with us. Anyone who is willing to spend the time, sweat and money (oh god, the money!) in keeping a decades old car on the road is truly driving a classic, no matter what it may be.
The New Classics Club was established as a reminder that a car is made of metal and rubber, but a classic has a heart and soul. So to all those true classic cars, and classic car enthusiasts, welcome to the club.
