Researching the previous owners of your classic car, boat, or motorcycle could pay off BIG. A historical imprint on a vehicle can be worth its weight in gold. History plays out every day and often involves vehicles that will survive somewhere in time and our hearts.
May it be a global event or a silver screen appearance, people embrace vehicles with all their emotional might to keep history alive. OJ’s white Bronco, Kennedy’s presidential 1961 Lincoln convertible, Marty Mcfly’s 1982 DeLorean DMC-12, Ronald Reagan’s 1972 Lincoln Continental, Bonnie and Clyde’s 1934 Ford Model 730 Deluxe, or the 1948 General Motors TDH-3610 City Transit bus that Rosa Parks created a landmark memory for the civil rights movement. All examples of autos making an everlasting impression on humans.
What do they all have in common? Sentimental value. No matter how painful or pleasing a memory may be, there’s an emotional price tag attached to historical branded tangible goods. Whoever said money couldn’t buy happiness never bought a classic auto — especially one wrapped in global recognition.
