Searching for a Classic Car on a Budget? Check Out These 10

Are you a classic car collector? Do you have dreams of adding your first classic car to your garage in the near future?

For many people, there’s only one problem with buying a classic car: the price.

Depending on the make and model, it’s not out of the question to run into a six-figure price tag.

While that may not be in your budget, there are plenty of classic cars that can be had for $20,000 or less. If you’re in the market, here are 10 models to add to your short list:

·      Datsun 240Z/260Z/280Z

·      Pontiac Firebird

·      Volkswagen GTI (Mk1 or Mk2)

·      Mazda MX-5 Miata

·      Chevrolet El Camino

·      Fiat 124 Spider

·      Jeep Jeepster

·      Ford F-100

·      Mercedes-Benz W115

·      Volvo 122

As you search for that perfect classic car, don’t be afraid to keep an open mind. One of these models may not be on your list right now, but once you check a few out in person everything could change.

When it comes to actually finding one of these classics, the nice thing is that they’re not extremely rare. Regardless of your location, a dedicated search should turn up several vehicles to choose from.

Tip: get creative during your search, such as by visiting local estate sales to see if there are any vehicles for sale.

If you come across one of these classic cars or already have one in your garage, send us a picture (or two). We’d love to see your wheels!
