If you really want to know the real value of classic cars, the best persons you can ask are car thieves. It is a sad but true fact that these thieves know which ones can line their pockets with more cash. But instead of endangering yourself by going to the black market of stolen vehicles just to know how much they're worth, just research on what cars are stolen most often.
In a weird way, the vehicles that are stolen most often are the most in demand cars out there. After all, these car thieves won't be risking their necks stealing them if they have no chance on earth of selling them afterwards. But what cars are the most targeted by thieves? And where can you get information regarding these? Insurance companies for one are a good source of info regarding stolen cars; it's their job to know which one is more at risk of being stolen. And according to them these are the top ten most stolen classic cars in America:
1. 1966 to 1982 Chevrolet Corvette
2. 1964 to 1969 Ford Mustang
3. 1958 to 1967 Impala
4. 1968 to 1969 Camaro
5. 1963 to 1972 Nova
6. 1966 to 1973 Chevelle
7. 1970 to 1978 Monte Carlo
8. 1955 to 1965 Cadillac DeVille
9. 1950 to 1971 Chevy Pickups
10. 1975 to 1979 Mercedes Benz SL450
Some people may argue that most of the cars on this list are too new to be considered as classic cars, but it depends on what constitutes a true "classic" car. Normally classic cars are more than 25 years old, but you can also call a car a classic if it has an impact on pop culture.
If you have a car that is on the list, you can either be proud that your car is valuable enough to be stolen, or be scared to death because your car is worth stealing. Whatever the case may be, you should start considering what security measures you should take to avoid your car from being stolen. In these days normal car alarms are easily bypassed by really skilled car thieves, so having more than just that is really recommended.
