Why do people keep and maintain cars built in the thirties, forties and fifties?

These are the days of F1car races. I wonder why people keep cars built in the 30's or 40's and keep them running as well.b

In America, Old Classic Cars = Wise Investment Choice. Old cars, coins, gold, jewelry, etc. It's how people invest their money. There is definitely a lot of money in it!

For me, I like seeing the better quality and sturdiness of automobiles back then. They may not have been as gas efficient back then, but they sure lasted a long time unlike these newer/latest models and makes.

People like older cars and to have one and keep it running has a status all it's own that only those who own them understands fully. I don't own one, but I see them and there was an antique car show this past month near me.

The answer is very simple: they love those cars!

It's like asking why do we have museums? Or why not demolish the pyramids or the Parthenon and build modern structures based on modern technolgy.

They are worth a lot of money and a rare find in some cases. I love older cars from way back. My wish is to someday buy one and redo it. To each their own. Everybody has different likes and interests.

I think the more old and the rare the value of those things is good. :)
