The names "vintage cars", "antiques", "old-timers", "classic cars", etc., are used to describe former car models that are generally over 30 years old and are no longer being manufactured. These terms also refer to vehicles which have been part of a historic event (regardless of their age) and vehicles designed solely for motorsports with a distinguished track record.
Unlike vintage cars, modern classic cars, i.e. cars that were manufactured in the 80s and 90s like the Golf and the Peugeot 205 GTI, are vehicles that stopped being manufactured at least 15 years ago. They are part of the category of cars which are too new to be considered as classic cars yet old enough to be of interest to collectors.
