    Generally cars built from 1900 to 1979 are considered either Veteran/Vintage, Antique or Classic, the actual years defining each category tend to differ depending on country. If the car is manufactured in 1980 or later, it is considered a collector car. Following images mainly taken at Classic car shows.

    Starting with Fords:-
    Ford Model A, late 20s

    It's a TD - for some reason there wasn't a TE.

    Rolls-Royce 20, you can tell by the horizontal grille bars, and red badge makes it pre-1933, when Henry Royce died -though apparently the decision to change the colour was made for aesthetic reasons, and Royce shuffling off was a sad coincidence.

    Second one I learnt to drive in! First was, I think, a Citroen, or similar.
