What's the difference between antique cars and vintage cars?

Think it has something to do with what country you are in, for instance in the uk any car over the age of 21 is free from road tax and classed as a vintage.

Classic cars are literally that, cars that have earnead the Marque, "Classic" due to certain desirable elements of its, style, engineering, technology of the day, even modern cars can be "Classics" if they are particularly excellent as cars.


Antiques are generally over 50 years old i think.

Vintage describes a specific year, such as Vintage 1951 or Vintage 1970.
Antique just means old.
Dealing with cars though, there is basically no difference.

where they called "Vintage" on their release, or, did they earn the monicker due to desirable aspects?.

Well, vintage started out as a way of describing the date of wine. Vin - Vineyard...
There is no set way to apply vintage to something, people just do it to make something seem more interesting I guess.

Antique cars have trees growing through them.


Vintage cars still run.

Maybe I have that backwards.

Though some Vintage years are better than others, a perfect reason to start dating the bottles as vintage XXXX to make them discernible without opening the bottle to taste.
In the UK a vintage car is over 21 years old, and much sought after due to not having to pay any road tax on them.

I am an antique dealer but my speciality isn't cars.
I do know that any car 20 years or older is considered
an antique in the antique world. However most people
refer to them as vintage and will list the year. Vintage
1956 Chevy, etc.
