7 of the most popular classic cars
Before buying or selling a classic car, an important factor to consider is its popularity for a number of reasons. Popularity could indicate the odds of selling the car if that is the intention- certainly it is easier to sell something that is in demand. At the same time, however, when buying a classic car, a popular car can make it difficult to find parts, and prices typically reflect that. Indeed, it can be much more expensive to repair a popular classic car. Aside from buying and selling, though, it’s just plain interesting to learn about some of the most popular cars. Here’s a list of 7 of the most popular classic cars. Drum roll, please!
Masters of Mileage: Car Longevity Standouts
Carmakers are in the business of making money by making cars. In order to sell cars, people need to have cars. Cars need to be replaced as the parts of the cars only work for so long. Car longevity has changed over the years. In the mid-century, cars were expected to last for about 100,000 miles. Now, they should last for at least 200,000 miles. Even though most cars will only last for so many miles, there are some people who work hard to be able to drive their cars for an impressive amount of miles.
Big Boys Classics
When you have your eye on a classic car, but the seller is overseas, or you want to offer your classic for sale to an international market, turn to Big Boys Classics. They work with buyers and sellers and have shipped cars to over 20 countries. In addition to finding cars for buyers and finding the best deal for sellers, they also offer financing, third party vehicle inspections, and both U.S. and international shipping.
For buying, selling, and repairing classic cars, you can’t beat Pappi’s Garage in Tupelo, Mississippi. At this classic car emporium, you can find your dream car and make it your real car. You can also sell your classic car when the time comes to let it go, or get the best and most experienced maintenance and repair work for the vehicle you treasure.
New Gas in Old Cars
When you are in the market for an old car, it is important to consider the type of gas you need to use to fill the tank. Many older cars ran on leaded gas, but leaded gas was deemed to be unsafe and was phased out in 1995. This means that older cars with engines designed for “old” gas have to be filled with the unleaded options of today.

The Chevelle SS: Chevy’s Classic Muscle Car from 1964 to 1973
When Chevrolet was ready to get into the muscle car movement it did so with the Super Sport, or SS, version of its mid-sized Chevelle, to compete with its brothers GTO and 442. The Chevelle model was an entirely new line for 1964 and Chevy continued to produce it through 1973, when the Malibu name took over. Buyers in the 1960s loved the Chevelle and the SS especially. It proved to be one of Chevy’s best-selling nameplates and the SS impressed both typical buyers and muscle car fans.
For many of us, the moment we really start to care about what exactly is happening under the hood of the car is also the moment when something has gone wrong. The dreaded “check engine” light can bring visions of expensive repairs or thoughts of having to replace Old Faithful. Oh, and smoke billowing out from that general area is not such a good sign. So what exactly happens inside an engine, and what does all the automotive jargon mean when stickers flaunt an “inline 6 engine?” Take a look.
Cars to Restore: 1) 1963-65 Buick Riviera- though parts for this model may be more expensive because they are in high demand among car restorers, some companies are beginning a new reproduction of them, which may mean the price will begin to drop slightly on those parts. As time passes, this car is increasingly more popular as one of the better cars to restore.
2) 1953-54 Chevrolet Bel Air- classic car enthusiasts love this model for many reasons, but we can all appreciate relatively low prices on parts. Everything from mechanical and electrical parts as well as upgrade options for added performance are generally inexpensive, comparatively speaking.
