Australia’s Best Classic Car Polish and Wax

Australian Classic Car Enthusiasts muse and discuss at length the fact that you were able to import a High-Performance V8 Shelby Mustang from the USA  when the exchange rate was much more favourable. Still today an early fully loaded Shelby Mustang can be won for around US$100,000 as opposed to the locally produced 1971 XY Ford GTHO Phase 3 with a few selling over the year for in excess of $1,000,000.

Still to this day the standard XY GT Falcons are advertised for well over $200,000.  Why? Because we grew up watching Bathurst where Ford and Holden fought for Pole Position and then raced to death. We all supported one or the other.
A 1972 Ferrari Dino is worth around US$277,000 and  US$347,000, while the Ferrari F40 has sold up to US1.6 MILLION, another amazing classic car manufacturer.  (If you are a Ferrari enthusiast look up the Ferrari Club of NSW; we’re honoured to be one of their sponsors).

Those of us who grew up as Baby Boomers and Generation X all watched Alan Moffat and Peter Brock as they raced to vie for the Holy Grail of First Place in our Australian Car Racing events.  The viewership and media consumption over the history of the Racing Car and car races in Australia is a testament to the fact that we have a passion for motorsport. Not only that, the value of the Ford GT Falcon is perhaps the most arguable true testimony that we have a greater and deep passion for nationally produced and manufactured cars.  Car racing is a part of the tapestry of our national identity and a significant thread in our weave.

In the 60s and 70s in Australia, anyone who owned a classic car was thought of as a little odd, really.  These days, doctors, dentists, lawyers, high profile entrepreneurs all buy classic cars, not just as a passion but also because of their intrinsic and increasing value.  They are a powerful investment.

What is a classic car enthusiast?

According to the Urban Dictionary a ‘Car Enthusiast’ is …

An individual that loves anything to do with cars and their counterparts, one who can talk for hours about cars and not get tired of it. These people do not hate on others for their vehicle choice and modification…  These people are in a somewhat small but lively community worldwide which engages in car meets, TV shows, blogs, forums, games, magazines, etc…Car enthusiasts will always be where the cars are, sharing our love of the automobile for what a car is, art.

The Cost Of Maintaining A Classic Car In The Modern Day

Along with the cost of maintaining these beauties is the maintenance and keep to showroom condition.  A minimum paint job these days is $20k on a ‘classic car’. When you get into the show quality it gets up to between $60-$100k just for a paint job.  If it is a certain metallic, a rarer metallic, it is very hard to match. We spoke to a classic car owner who had one scratch on the door of his classic car and had to spray the whole car because it could not be colour matched.  You simply cannot have products that maintain your car and risk scratching the surface of your precious ‘baby’.

If you are new to ‘classic cars’ let us explain to you what the term means, and other terms that relate to it.

These days, in layman’s terms, people understand a ‘classic car’ to be a car that was manufactured in 1970 and before that is a ‘collectible’.  However, the true definition for a passionate classic car enthusiast is cars manufactured in the 40s to 50s and including 30s cars in the vintage range.

So there are three definitions you see.  Classic, Vintage and Veteran cars.

The Veteran Car, a Definition

A Veteran Car is a vehicle constructed pre-1919 (that is one of the oldest vehicles and first-ever manufactured cars).

This YouTube video shows what it was like to drive the original Ford T circa 1908.

The Vintage Car, a Definition

What classifies a car as vintage? A Vintage car is a vehicle constructed after 1919 and up to and including 1930.  Sometimes enthusiasts also class these cars as ‘antique’. In this period cars were evolving, becoming more comfortable, practical and convenient for those who owned them

It gets a little tricky though using the definition of antique because others regard any car aged more than 25 years at the present day as antique.  

The Classic Car, a Definition

Classic Cars fall into categories of any car older than 20-25 years.  Btw, automobiles ranging from around `15 to 25 years old are sometimes referred to as modern classic cars or ‘youngtimers’.  These are generally rejected though as a true antique or classic car by hardcore car enthusiasts. Classic car definitions vary greatly right throughout the world per country.  Most regard a classic car as a vehicle that has a historical interest significant enough to be regarded as valuable, collectible and worth preservation and restoration. There is a nostalgia involved.  A passion, honouring and deep respect of the motor vehicle engineers and visionaries of the past. Sometimes called ‘oldtimers’ or ‘older automobiles’ these cars remain celebrated and shared by Car Clubs and Car Associations world-wide.  Like-minded, passionate men and women who come together to share, celebrate, envy and covet any car, be it veteran, vintage or classic.
