Truly agree,

An SS80 by no standards can be termed a classic. It will take 5 more decades for SS80 to catch up with some other classics in terms of price also.

Its pure mistake and is irrelevant to have it amongst the actual classics on a Forum like this. Gross Technical Error

I've reported this to the moderators, but somehow none seem to respond in having it removed from there.

Any more info on that Scooby ?

I happen to notice a rather complete-looking orange one sitting at a local garage here.

No idea if it is for sale though. 'haven't seen the engine (yet) either.

the maruti ss80 is already 25 plus old,so another 5 decades means 75plus years, so PAVANji you mean to say only 75 plus years are classics!!!
I was always wondering who was behind pushing this thread twice out of this forum,now I know the hands behind it.
for your kind info,please go the number of views this thread has got which justifies its inclusion in this classic subforum

Ajay in my view and of others the Maruti would not classify actually as a classic but an interesting car to own.

If the 25 year mark was a yardstic for claiming classic status then even our old Bajaj Autos will be wanting classic status.

There is a place for this thread which I guess is in the Indian Cars thread but definitely not in the Vintage cars & Classic Cars in India section.

Having said that I actually have no issues with wherever this thread is located.

Hey guys !
I don't think we are going to get anywhere arguing about the "Classic or Non-Classic" status of our or any cars. Ultimately the purpose of this forum is to be informative and useful, and not to start needless personal arguments.
If we do decide to stick to international definitions and standards, let me tell you, that more that 50 percent of all the claimed "Vintages, Classics, and Recent Classics" currently in India would fail the test. I may have ruffled a lot of feathers with this statement, but it is my humble opinion, and do correct me if I'm wrong.
Why not sit back and enjoy what TBhp is meant for ?
Cheers !

We really have no proper definition/boundaries/limits in place as to what is and isn't a classic/vintage etc.

From what I see the SS80 is discussed in a manner similar to the way we discuss collectable cars - Japanese tail lamp lenses, original shade of leather, original stickers in the engine bay etc. That makes it a classic to me. I use the term classic loosely, please note. Today most people are looking to acquire one for its collectable value, very rarely for rudimentary transortation purposes (on this forum I mean). It really doesn no harm to be present on this thread, so live and let live I say, and lets get back on track.

I agree with this. No point in discussing what is a classic and what is not. To some it may be to some it may not, Whats the point of discussing it and moving away the main topic of discussion.
