Collector's Guide

AllClassicAds collector's guide imageAlthough it seems that their are many old classic antique vehicles out there, collecting and restoring is relatively young. Regrettably back whey then cars were merely discarded and forgotten about in backyards and junkyards. Nobody thought about restoring them. Who knew it would become the favourite pass time of collectors all over the world. Just as a few enthusiasts back in 1935 such as Frank Abramson and Theodore Fiala got together to preserve and restore those highly decorated brass and chrome beauties from before 1915. This was the beginning of The Antique Automobile Club of America. Collecting old cars and trucks is an activity that involves challenges, but can achieve remarkable and potential rewards. Imagine owning a part of history that can be driven and shown off to everyone around you. What a feeling that must be. What an achievement that can be in your life. This hobby enables you to be in touch we people from all over your country and the world. It's not just a memory anymore. By owning a piece of history you make a connection with the history of powered transportation. It's not limited to collecting antique cars or trucks. There are collectors of manuals, books, oil cans, gas station pumps and of coarse All Classic Auto and Truck Advertisements. Here are a few tips to consider when purchasing or restoring and old collectable antique car or truck.

Budget - Make sure you start with a budget in mind. Spend what you can afford. This is not a daily rider. Maybe start by creating a hobby fund of about $200.00 per month. When the fund gets to a large enough amount then consider purchasing your first collectible antique vehicle.

Storage - Make sure you have a dry place to store it or where you can work on it and keep it clean.

Choice - Research the market and see what people say about particular vehicles. Decide on luxury or sports. Fun to drive and affordable or luxurious and expensive. This is the most important step. Once you own it you have to enjoy and love it. See if the parts are available. See if you can find a dependable mechanic in your area to service it when you can't. Purchase the vehicle manual first to get an understanding of the way the vehicle was built. American or Import - this is the question.

Ownership - Storage, Insurance, Area Inspections, Registrations, Taxes are all part of the package. You have to be realistic about what you can and cannot afford and handle. Don't get over your head with responsibilities that you can't handle. Research and ask questions.

Contingency Plan - What is the re-sale value when or if you run into problems. Is there a demand for the vehicle. How quickly can you sell it? What is it's demand and supply? How many were manufactured? What were the options including colour when it was available? How original is your car? Is the vehicle fully original and stock? Do you have the original invoice when purchased and the full history of service and ownership? Is the odometer true or false? Buyer Beware!

Consultation - No one can make the decision but you, but a mechanic or fellow collector can save you grief and losses just by asking a few questions. Attending local antique meets and activities can also help you understand the market. Make sure you take the time to make the right decision.

MSD Ignition - Autotronic Controls Corp. (ACC) was founded in 1970 as a research and development company by two engineers from White Sands (New Mexico) Missile Range. The men and their other partners were working on a lean burn fuel system called the Electrasonic Fuel Induction system to help fuel economy of new and older automobiles. As the new fuel system was being perfected, the air/fuel mixture was becoming so lean that it was difficult for conventional breaker points and early electronic ignitions to ignite it. The men of ACC then started investigating a new ignition system by using modern technology called capacitive discharge (CD). The CD design opened another door for the ignition, the capability to spark multiple times. ACC has produced the best performing and most popular performance ignitions for over 20 years. The high energy spark of the CD design combined with multiple sparks resulted in a potent ignition. Not only did the multiple spark discharge (MSD) ignite the lean fuel mixture, it made overall improvements in the engine's performance! Improved starting, smooth idle, less emissions and more power are benefits every car and truck can take advantage of, especially race cars.
