Again, as with any high-priced classic item, it’s hard to find replacement parts. Just like with an old Apple Mac, you aren’t going to be able to just buy a new fender for a 1964 Corvette. It takes a lot of work to replace the parts when one of these cars is involved in a collision. And aside from that, it can end up becoming a total loss quite easily. Insurance is going to run you a premium on these types of vehicles because of the cost of repairs.
In a lot of instances, the repair parts cannot even be obtained anymore, and you’ll have to purchase a donor car to use for parts and repair. So as you can see, there’s a lot of thought that goes into the ownership of a classic car. Don’t shy away from the dream now, but it should be noted which drawbacks come with classic car ownership.
