It turns out he's a nut for old cars and actually owns a beautifully restored police cruiser from the 1930's. It was the most unique antique car I had ever seen. How many people do you know own a police cruiser, aside from the police? When I joked with him about the rarity of the car, he told me he knows quite a few people in the area who own antique police cruisers. "That's amazing," I said to him. "Do you guys ever get together?" "Every month," he laughed, "at the donut shop!" (Thanks to Shawn M.) Reader Humor Laughs For Sale Duane "Cash" Holze & Todd "Carry" Holze www.ClassifiedGuys.com Fast Facts Dear Classified Guys, My brother-in-law always has to add his two cents on everything. When my 1988 Toyota Celica blew a head gasket, he told me that I'd be lucky to get someone to tow it away. However, I heard that once a car becomes 25 years old, it's considered a clas- sic and worth a lot more money. So I figure I should get it fixed and then try to sell it for a profit. My musclehead brother-in-law says I'm just wasting my money and that there's no such rule about classic cars. I'd just love to prove him wrong and deflate his ego. Can you guys explain to him that my car will be a classic by next year? • • • Cash: Unfortunately, the only things you may be deflating are the tires on your car. Carry: There is no hard-set rule that a car becomes a classic at 25 years old. If that were the case, a lot of people would be buying 24- year-old cars and waiting to cele- brate at New Years. Cash: In fact, most people can't even agree on how to define "clas- sic". The Classic Car Club of America only considers cars from 1925 to 1948 to be classics. Others consider cars like the 1957 Chevy or 1966 Corvette to be classics. Carry: In your case, you're con- cerned with the car's overall value. Most cars depreciate the day after they are purchased. Their age and normal everyday wear and tear ultimately erode the car's value. In rare cases when there is con- sumer demand, the value of a car can appreciate as it gets older. Cash: It's difficult for most peo- ple to predict which cars will become more valuable over time. For instance, not many expected the Ford "Edsel" to become a clas- sic. It flopped when it was intro- duced in 1957, but is considered by many today to be a collector's car. Carry: Although possible, it's unlikely that your 1988 Toyota Celica will ever fall into the "clas- sic" category. You can research the blue book value, but consider- ing it needs a new head gasket and maybe a few other repairs due to its age, it's probably not worth spending money on the car, espe- cially as an investment. Cash: Now if you're still set on proving your brother-in-law wrong, you could wait another 25 years to see if the car appreciates in value. Although by then, his ego may have deflated by itself. Ask the Guys This car needs to see a doctor, not a mechanic! ©The Classified Guys ® 11/25/12 Downsizing If you thought your economy sedan was small, you should try driving the Peel P50. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, it is the smallest street legal car ever put into production. At a length of only 53 inches long, and a width of just over 3 feet, it's smaller than the average bumper car at a fair. Although manufactured from 1962 to 1965 in the United Kingdom, it was not a big seller. Most drivers found it to be too noisy, unstable and cramped. Modeled to a T When the automobile was first produced in the 1890's by compa- nies such as Diamler Motors and Peugeot, it had an unbelievable price of $2000 to $3000, a small fortune for that time period. It wasn't until the introduction of the Ford Model T in 1908 that the car became affordable to the masses. Anyone could purchase a Ford for around $950. As Ford honed his assembly line techniques, the car's price dipped as low as $280. Nearly 15,500,000 were sold in the United States alone. • Do you have a question or funny story about the classifieds? Want to just give us your opinion? Email us at: comments@classifiedguys.com.

Determining the value of their service or product is advised by The Valley Breeze management. In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer employment but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories, and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. Under NO circumstances should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit, and note that for a credit repair company does business only over the phone, it is illegal to request any money before delivering its service. If you have any problem with an advertiser listed here, please call Donna at 334-9555, ext. 133, so that we may report them to the trade association.
