A classic car is an older automobile; the exact definition varies around the world...
Organizations such as the Classic Car Club of America (CCCA) and the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) maintain a list of eligible unmodified cars that are called "classic". These are described as "fine" or "distinctive" automobile, either American or foreign built, produced between 1915 and 1948.
Cars produced in 1915 and older typically fall into the antique class and this includes the "Brass Era car" that are defined by the Horseless Carriage Club of America (HCCA) as "any pioneer gas, steam and electric motor vehicle built or manufactured prior to January 1, 1916."
If you are thinking about getting involved in the world of "old" cars, you should learn the various car classifications: antique, vintage and classic.
“It was really the result of confusion over the word ‘veteran,'” Don Knight, the newly elected president of the VMCCA said. “When the club was formed in 1938, old cars were referred to as ‘veterans,’ but in more recent years we were more perceived as a military car club or that you had to be a military veteran to join.”
VMCCA changes its name to Vintage Motor Car Club of America in bid to attract new members

Here is a general overview of how old an antique car has to be to qualify for classic car insurance.
