Classic Cars and the Owner’s Club
by: Bob Pardue
There are few hobbies in this country that not only allow you to be an active participant, but provide you with the means to take your passion on the road in order to share it with others as the collecting of classic cars does.
This is one hobby that is as much a past time and ingrained in the fabric of American culture as baseball, hot dogs and apple pie. In fact, this was an advertising slogan for one of the most sought after, bought and sold American classic cars in existence today: the Chevrolet.
Introduced in 1910 as a joint partnership with William Durant — the man who founded General Motors — the cars that bear the surname of Louis Chevrolet are among the most popular for those buying and selling classic cars.
However, regardless of whether or not you are on the buying or selling side of any kind of classic car, there are several things you should be aware of when beginning to pursue this hobby that will not only make it more enjoyable for you, but for those you meet and deal with on a regular basis.
The first thing you should do when you have recognized your love, passion and excitement for classic cars is to join an owner’s club. An owner’s club is a group of like minded individuals that share your passion for your preferred classic car.
It is this group that will give you the most intensive knowledge and information about the car that has caught your fancy and if you are in to selling classic cars, it is within the owner’s club that you are the most likely to find a buyer as many are continually looking to expand the range and types of cars within their collection.
Too, when you become a member of a classic car owner’s club, the world of classic cars will open up to you in ways you never anticipated, especially during the often held annual car shows and get-togethers that are held throughout the country.
You will learn unique history of the cars you love, as well as the possibility of discovering a long lost automobile treasure. Additionally, you will be in the perfect position for buying and selling classic cars, so, unleash your dreams and follow your passion.
