Well… First things first! What do you understand by a vintage car? Is that the collection of that old speed-less vehicles which hardly had 3 gears to boast of! Practically, Yes! But what is the real stuff? A vintage car is commonly defined as a car built between the start of 1919 and the end of 1930. There is little debate about the start date of the vintage period—the end of World War I is a nicely defined marker there—but the end date is a matter of a little more debate. The British definition is strict about 1930 being the cut-off, while some American sources prefer 1925 since it is the pre-classic car period as defined by the Classic Car Club of America (CCCA)
The vintage period in the automotive world was a time of transition. The car started off in 1919 as still something of a rarity, and ended up, in 1930, well on the way towards ubiquity. In fact, automobile production at the end of this period was not matched again until the 1950s. In the intervening years, most industrialized states built nationwide road systems with the result that, towards the end of the period, the ability to negotiate unpaved roads was no longer a prime consideration of automotive design. Cars became much more practical, convenient and comfortable during this period. Car heating was introduced, as was the in-car radio.
So what is the difference between Vintage cars and Classic cars ? Its simple, a vintage car is one which is built between 1919 and 1930 and a classic car according to Classic car club of America is one which is 20 to 45 years old falling into an antique car category.
