Modern Classics - Ford Thunderbird, Jaguar XKR and more


How old do cars have to be in order to be considered collectible? Once vehicles hit that magic 25-year mark many consider them collectible simply for having survived normal vehicular attrition. Yet it’s hard to think of a Chevrolet Cavalier as being worthy of the description, despite the fact that it’s been around for longer than that (Z24 lovers can complain now if they’d like). Here are a handful of cars that haven’t yet reached their milestone birthday but we believe are worthy of collector status today. We base this selection on general interest for the cars but also on vehicles insured as non-daily drivers with Hagerty Insurance by enthusiast owners.
