No doubt some beautiful machinery - I would be dribbling for a week.

Whats the difference between veteran, vintage and classic cars? In simple terms, veteran cars are the oldest; vintage cars are those made between the two world wars, and classic cars are post-war and more than 40 years old.

Veteran  generally means a car made up to and including December 1918, but this period is sometimes divided as follows:
pre-1905: veteran (UK) or antique (Ireland)
1905 1918: Edwardian (UK) or veteran (Ireland)
Only pre-1905 cars may take part in the famous annual London-Brighton run.

There was a decline in quality from 1930, so post-1930 cars do not officially qualify. These may be described as post-vintage thoroughbreds if they are of a high standard e.g. Rolls Royce.

Classic  a less precise term, generally meaning a post-war car that is popular, desirable or interesting but no longer in production. In the UK, the government considers all cars more than 40 years old to qualify as classic cars and allows them to be driven free of road tax.
