Is Driving A Classic Car Daily The Best Bet

Is Driving A Classic Car Daily The Best Bet

I know over the years of driving old cars, I didn't find them to be very reliable. I thought I was getting a
good deal when I bought them, until the repair bills started mounting up.

Here Is An Excerpt From A Yahoo Q&A That Explains It Well :

"For high school I had a 1969 camaro ss "clone" 4 speed. I don't want to sugar coat my answer, and will say I would not have changed my choice at all, but it's no picnic using these cars as a daily driver. The positives were it was my first car, it gets attention every where you go, and it will never lose it's value. Some cons I ran into are it's not like a normal car you can't just jump in, and go like a fuel injected car. The one huge problem I ran into is that the car would constantly overheat & die. With mine I would constantly have to rev it to keep it running, and when ever I parked I would have to wait 45-60 mins till it cooled."

  Having your very own classic car to drive on a daily basis would be great if you can afford to. I know I need a good reliable car to get me back and forth to work. I can always fix a classic up for car shows and some driving in the summer.
