Well, I may be wrong here, but I think the VCCCI or Vintage & Classic Car Club of India specifies when a vehicle turns into a classic or Vinatge.

Vintage - Cars & Motorcycles built before 1940
Classics - Cars & Motorcycles built between 1941 - 1960
Recent Classics - Cars built between 1961 - 1970

I presume this is updated periodlically, or you could use the ratio and calulate when your vehicle will become a "recent classic", "classic" and finally a "vintage".

finally, i couldn't find a pic of the W196 for a while now. i was thinking of starting a whole new thred but couldn't because i was unable to find a pic. this ladies and gentlemen, my favourite Mercedes of all time. Fangio won the 1954 and the 1955 world championships in this very car. this car is such a favourite of mine, that this is the only car i ever bothered sketching. and it gets better, it's the only sketch that turned out looking good.

coming to the auction, the top two cars definitely deserved their price. amazing. 24 million dollars is a lot of money, for what id say is a lot of heritage value. but prices of the 250 GTO have since gone down.
