13: Less Reliable
Depending on which classic car you get, older muscle cars were not the most reliable. From not being able to start on a cold day to issues with the carburetor. If you’re going to dive into the classic car scene, be prepared to spend a large amount of cash. Repairs are a dime a dozen and it will seem like you are always spending money on the car. Most classic car owners are used to this and don’t fret the small stuff, but for a newbie, this could be potentially startling.
Classic cars are not meant to be your everyday driver, which is why some people have a bit of sticker shock. However, with regular maintenance and the expectation that things can happen the ownership of a classic car can be less stressful.
