Brief History of Antique Cars

The history of the modern car goes back to 1768 when the first steam-powered carriage was designed. In 1806, the first internal combustion engine was invented, but it wasn’t placed into a car and used as a means of transport until 70 years later. Over time, inventors started using this technology to create the classic cars that we know and love today. We have come a long way since then! Each country also has its own collection of legendary classic cars that are extremely valuable among car lovers and those who collect them.
