This may be way off base but:
- were you born in the fifty's?
- what did you consider a vintage car when you were a young man?
When I look back in my yute and had my first car - 1957 Ford in 1966 at age 16, a 1952 vehicle was outdated and old, yet a 33 Ford was just ancient!
Think about where our people were in 1900 and what has happened in 118 years - how we are escalating exponentially in all parts of life
A 1940 vehicle was ancient to me in 1965 - a 1955 vehicle was a classic
As each decade arises, we close in on a vehicle status - outdated like a cell phone
Things happen so quickly in our world these days
As to what is considered classic, we need to consider the vehicle - what will future generations consider collectable?
There are some that will definitely fit the status, but so many cookie cutters - but has that not been the case over the years - just less volume
IMO, the SSR deserves Collector status now - insurance companies will not see it this way
Our SSR's are a rare example of a Concept Vehicle that made it to the market
