Can anyone help me learn more about classic cars...I love them but don't know where to start.
I just found this website and I was wondering if anyone would be able to give any insight on the right steps to take on getting into the Classic Car community. I have always wanted to get a classic car, but i'm not sure where to start out or even how to fix them up. Obviously I don't have a great deal of experience and I am just looking for some resources of what I should do to start.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help.

I have been into the classic car scene for 12 years. All I can say is I have always followed my heat with my purchases. Ny first car i purchase was a 1968 Pontiac LeMans Convertible. I found that evey time I went to a show I left my car and went straight to the cars from the 30's. I then knew that the 30's was my passion. I have now owned a fully restored 2 door 1939 Pontiac Silver Streak for the past 7 years. I find cars such as this that are rare and original make my heart pump faster. Not to mention that if it is unique it gets more attention! Good luck with your quest. Right now it seems Trucks, Panal Vans , and Sedan deliveries are the hot thing. I have attached a link to another favorite sight of mine. If you look under the second link Brad you will see my Truck and car. Barry Meguire has an awesome show on TV that will teach you a lot.

I would suggest looking at this site and searching for car shows in your area. Go to as many car shows as possible. Befriend some of the participants. Carnuts love to talk cars, they can be a valuable source of information. Misery loves company, if you are willing to learn and lend a hand with some of their projects, they will most always take you under their wing and share their passion for cars with you.

I dont know where your at at this point in your quest to find your classic but a great website is www.carnut.com, it has pictures of most every classic out there so one may draw some conclusions as to the particular make/model one might be interested in. There are also many many links to help you to find what you're looking for.
