This Flowchart Will Tell You Exactly Which Classic Car To Buy

Illustration for article titled This Flowchart Will Tell You Exactly Which Classic Car To Buy

We've done new cars, we've done SUVs and crossovers, so now it's time for a flowchart of my favorite huge category of cars: Classics. In some ways this was the hardest one to make, because there are way more cars on here I give a brace of people scats about. You know how to use these by now — give it a try!

Also, I should mention I may do another classic chart, because there's just so many great vintage cars that didn't make it on this one, because I ran out of formatted 5.25" floppies for the Jalopnik Mainframe.

Alright. Have at it. I'm looking forward to seeing what you end up with!

Triumph. Where is a Triumph? IF you want looks faster and feels faster than it is, a TR6. If you hate safety and like to be invisible, a Spitfire, which has the added benefit of being much faster than expected. As to reliability, I've had 47k miles in my Spitfire since March 2010 with only a few problems, like the diff going bad after 34 years of use.
