When you are into collector cars you may or may not be a stickler for exact definitions, and in some cases they overlap, and it can become confusing. It really doesn't matter to many of us, but technically, according to the Antique Automobile Club of America an antique car is a vehicle that is at least 45 years of age. They say that a "classic" car is somewhere between 20-45 years old, and the designation of the "true classic" is reserved for certain cars within that age group that are deemed as possessing a particular level of quality.
Antique car collecting is a lot of fun, and there are many antique automobile museums all around the country that have some unbelievable collections. The lines between classic and antique cars are indeed a little bit blurry in a practical sense, because a 1964 Corvette seems a lot more similar to a 1970 Camaro than a 1909 Model T Ford, and that is where formal definition sometimes fail us. In terms of the registration of vehicles as "antique cars" with your state's motor vehicle department, the exact criteria can vary from state to state, so it is best to contact them directly or visit their website to obtain this information.
