Classic Car Collectors Rely On CTEK Battery Chargers

Classic car collectors rely on CTEK battery chargers to keep their vintage cars ready to drive.

Classic Car Red Ford MustangCar collecting is a big hobby. There are an estimated 5 million classic cars in the United States alone.

While the Classic Car Club of America defines a classic vehicle as a “fine” or “Distinctive” automobile built between 1915 and 1948, insurance companies tend to have a broader definition of what makes a classic car.

For insurance and registration, a “classic car” is anything at least 20 years old but not more than 40 years old. There are other classifications for vehicles considered “vintage” or “antiques.”  However, more often than not, the word “classic” is used to describe any older vehicle.

What the vehicles do have in common is the passion of their owners. Classic cars are seen as pieces of history and objets d’art. 

Whether you own one classic car or dozens, ensuring your car is ready to drive when you want to take it to a car show or festival - or just out for a drive - is important.
