Every club has different parameters for classifications. IMHO a vintage should be anything built between from 1920-30. The classic car clubs in Uk and USA differ on the cut off dates.
Some consider the end of WW-I to be the end if the vintage period whereas some consider the end of WW-II to be that period.
I dont really know what criteria the VCCCI follows to classify the above.

Well, from what I've gathered, almost everybody concur that the cut-off date for vintages is 31st December 1939 (with Edwardians, etc. going off earlier, but that's just the nitty-gritty). Thereafter come the classics, and the arguments begin! There are different schools of thought and a few guides, like the Dalton Guide, that specify what's classic and what's not. Different folks subscribe to different theories. Some autos of course become instant classics. For me, for whatever it's worth, any old automobile that's becoming rarer by the day (including our Fiats, Ambassadors, Standards) is desirable and a classic that needs to be preserved. But then, I'm just an ordinary, grease-on-my-pants type, which I suspect most, okay many, of us on this forum are.

Took some serious searching to find out what it is.

To some of you, this will be a cake-walk.

Anyway, make and model, please.
That very same car made it into the April 08 issue of BSM as part of an article I wrote on the VCCCI rally. Also present is the Mole's Rover P 5.

The weekend's nearly done and dusted. No activity here, after my last post 3 days back.

It's a 1979 Guanci SJJ-1.

Believe it or not, it's American, and is one of only two production cars made.

1979 Guanci SJJ1 GT

Cheers,
