Classic cars are not the same classification as vintage and antique, as there are different stipulations regarding how each one is labeled. To be a classic car, generally, a vehicle must be 25 years old but not older than 40 and have an engine and body that are without modifications. You will also have to operate by the limitations imposed by law in Maryville, TN with regard to how often you may drive your car.
Classic Car Restrictions
A classic car can be used for pleasure, and this is defined differently than everyday use, for example, getting groceries or driving to a job. This would mean you could go out for a Sunday drive on occasion or for other leisurely and sparse outings.
You would be allowed to travel to and from exhibitions, as classic car owners often enjoy displaying their vehicles at car shows and cruise-in circuits. If you are a participant in a vintage car club and wish to drive to these meetings, that is usually also permitted.
It is a requirement that you store your vehicle in a manner keeping with its classic status, such as in an area that is fully enclosed and that has a door with a lock of some kind. Your Carr Insurance Group agent can go into more detail about this with you.
New cars can also qualify for classic status if they are particularly exotic or are a replica of an older model automobile. Specialty vehicles, such as those used for the military, fire engines, and hearses may also be labeled as classic and insured as such.
