The Clasiq Guide to Future Classic Cars

Date: 29 April 2019

Think classic muscle and you will, no doubt, think of the 1960s or ‘70s Mustang, Camaro or a Corvette. These cars have cult status in the American driver's psyche for lots of reasons, they speak to a Golden age of US auto production and perhaps even the American Dream. But these cars weren’t created with the icon status in mind. They were created to serve the arms race between auto companies who wanted middle-class Americans to part with their hard-earned cash. So, what car should you be looking at now which have the potential to become a future classic?

Firstly, let’s look at what makes a classic car because, crucially, any old car isn’t a classic. The definition of a classic varies around the world (and even from state to state) but typically it’s generally a car that’s older than 20 years old and has an element to it that makes it collectible and worthy of restoration, rather the scrapping. This may not be true of all cars, however, there is a market for AMC Pacer’s despite many people considering them to be a joke.

But let’s get down to business. Which cars from the ’90s and ’00s which you can probably pick up on the cheap, which in a few years time, could be sold for a tidy profit? We asked the Clasiq community for their opinion, looked at the market and what’s more easily available without costing a small fortune and here’s our top five. Spoiler alert — it’s not all US muscle…
