The past 12 months has left the classic car market surprisingly unscathed, meaning a continuation of the mixed pictures of winners and losers from before the global pandemic struck. Our handy guide helps navigate what's going on.

A rational observer might have expected classic car enthusiasts to have sat on their money and waited to see what the impact might be on the global and national economy, and particularly their own jobs and businesses. That could well have stifled the supply of cars coming to market, or even have led to tumbling prices from owners desperate to release cash. Neither happened; instead cars continued to sell, at more or less than they had done previously, depending on type and value. There was no simple, overall trend, which is why the insight from our market experts and the industry insiders we consulted is so valuable.
