The largest tractor show that we go to has a year limit of 1975 or older.
:trink39: Just wanted the definitions so she could decide what she might have. I'am sorta leaning with what D-Dog said. Just trying to help with the topic question, and voice my opinion.:trink39:I don't really concern myself with those type of classifications. My collection is primarily '60's tractors. The youngest of my collector tractors is a 1970, and I use it all winter pushing snow. I've taken it to many shows, and never refused admittance. :fing02:
I mow the yard with a 2010 JD X320, doubt if it'll still be around 40 years from now. raying:
So, a '90 car is an antique now? I don't think so. I'm almost 65 and I think anything made when I was a kid is an antique. Anyway, these catagories probably won't mean anything until some kind of national governing board makes them official.I Know Here in IL 20 years is a antique for Cars & Trucks
The term "antique" is way over used.Furniture for one must be at least 100yrs.to qualify.People use it as a selling feature,to jack the price a tad.It's all just words and how best to decribe an item.I once in time considered antique stuff to be so old an rickidy that it wouldn't be usefull.But the older I get----opps,sorry got off subject.----Your GT or etc.is as you see it,as long as it is yours.:trink40:Technically doesn't something have to be 50 years old to qualify as an antique? Seems like that's the number I hear antique people throw around.
Vintage, classic, collectable, those are all terms that get throwed around quite freely in automotive circles but meant to mean an old pile of iron that might still move under it's own power.
