Calling all classic owners.

After a good idea by a certain MG owner I have created a group for the classic owners and fans on DW.
Come on over.

Thats open to interpretation. General rule of thumb is 25+ years old I think, but other newer cars creep in if they have special merit. For the purposes of this group though lets not be too ageist

I am not the authority on classic status and tbh I've never liked that part of the scene where people look down their noses at cars they deem not to be worthy, but seeing as no-one else is answering.......
Your car sure looks nice and is definitely a future classic if it's not one already. I think a lot of 'classic' status comes from our own youth, and people tend to gravitate to the cars they remember seeing when they were kids. That makes your fiesta a bit too young for me, but then, I'm not in my first flush of youth
The important thing is what you think of it.
Either way, your welcome in the group
