What Determines If A Car Is Considered A Classic Car

The year a car is manufactured determines whether a car is considered to be a classic by the blue book publications. For example, both Kelley Blue Book NADA classifies any car or truck over 20 years old into their classic category. That means all cars manufactured from 1989 and earlier. KBB only publishes values of cars back to 1946, while NADA's prices date back another 20 years to 1926. If you are looking for a value of a car older than 1926 there is not a source available online.
