Classic Car Financing
Owning a classic car can be a great joy, but if you cannot buy your dream car outright, you will need to consider your financing options. Classic car financing is not always the same as getting a loan for a new or used vehicle. Especially if the car you hope to purchase is rare or has been customized, you can expect to need specialized financing.
Insure Your Classic Car: Get the Coverage You Need
It does not matter if you own a classic Chevy Stylemaster, a Buick Roadmaster, or Chrysler Airflow, you will need to insure the car. Insuring a vintage car is a bit different than insuring your daily automobile. Instead of simply adding your classic car to your regular auto policy, it is worth your time and money to investigate appropriate vintage auto insurance.
High Tech Lo Tech: Concept Cars from 1969
General Motors was on a roll in the 1960s, with muscle cars and cars inspired by the space race. The biggest automaker in the world ended the decade with concept cars that took imagination and innovation to an entirely new level. These cars looked more like space ships than speed demons and they were created with idea of where technology could take us when we were on the roads.
Cars and Songs
There is no doubt that music and automobiles have a place together in history. For many people, there is nothing quite like cruising around town with the radio blasting. The love affair with cars and music inspired songwriters to craft memorable pieces all about their favorite cars, like the Lincoln Zephyr, the Mercedes Benz, and the Chevy Corvette. Here are a few cars that appeared in song lyrics by artists from a variety of different music genres:

Don’t Forget about the Trail Blazers
No, not the Chevy SUV, but the cars that paved the way. The cars that were deemed the first of their kind and spawned a huge following. While we look at new cars and the amazing things that they can do, let’s take a quick look back a few of the trailblazers that have opened doors:
Datsun 240Z: Prior to the release of the Datsun 240Z, Japanese cars were small, compact, and somewhat ugly. The Datsun 240Z was the first speedy Japanese car to hit American shores. These cars were sexy and fast and drivers loved them. The Datsun 240Z paved the way for other gorgeous Asian cars like the Scion FRS, the Nissan Skyline, and the Toyota Celica.
The Deuce and a Quarter: Slang for the Car Enthusiasts
Cars have earned their place in the hearts of their drivers. In the United States, it seems that as soon as something becomes special to us, we give it pet names. Those pet names then turn into slang terms, which evolve as they spread around the country. Cars have had their fair share of memorable slang terms.

The World’s Oldest Cars From London to Brighton
Every year, the oldest cars in the world, and their devoted owners, gather in England to make the trek from London to Brighton. The Veteran Car Run, held early each November, sees hundreds of pre-1905 cars make the journey in a parade of automobile antiquity.
The Run itself is even older than most of the vehicles participating. According to the Royal Automobile Club, which sponsors the event, the Veteran Car Run commemorates the Emancipation Run, which took place on November 14, 1896. The original run was held to celebrate the passing of a law that raised road speed limits in the UK from four to a whopping 14 miles an hour.
