Classic Car Models

Classic Car Models: In tough economic times, it can be hard to accept the reality that owning or restoring a classic car is just too expensive, especially if doing so has been a dream since childhood. The cost of the restoration can be prohibitive, but keeping the car maintained, filling the gas tank, and keeping the car properly insured can be an added financial strain. For these reasons among others, many car enthusiasts are turning to other options to fuel their passion for the cars of “the good ol’ days.” Some immerse themselves in books or attend classic car cruises, but others collect a more storage-friendly alternative. The Collectors Guild features to-scale models of classic cars of all kinds.
