At what age is a car or truck considered as a classic?
April 15, 2008
Most would debate the exact meaning of a classic car depending on the type of car that it is, but generally speaking I believe it is any car 20 years or older.
You could check out Wikipedia for a more in-depth description.

Depending on your state of residents the the usual time is 25 yrs. In Ohio it is 25 years making cars, trucks and motorcycles eligible for antique plates. There is no differentation between antique or classic vehicle when applying for these special plates. Classic cars usually are low production, high dollar price when new. Antique vehicles on the hand are high production, moderate to low price when new.

In Kentucky its 25 years.It was 35 years.Have had a few and they allso have eased up on what you can run them on.They did have to be all stock.They let me have them on my 37 chevy pickup that has a 1967 283 ten years ago.When I got it over 30 years ago they would not let me have the one time plates then.You pay double but are good for as long as you own it.Had a 36ply coupe that I was not able to get them on when 35 year time cut because I drove it most every day.Now I see some really wild rods running them?Must not be picky at all now.
