I’m a great fan of real hot rods. I just can’t get enough of the sheer power that they radiate. Who doesn’t want to ride a powerful car with flames on the side? The downside is that hot rods are pretty expensive. You don’t see them too often parked right in the streets as most people with moderate incomes won’t be able to afford them. But if you’re a car aficionado you’ve got the money, then a hot rod is a thing you simply cannot afford to miss out on. Hot rods are collector cars and you cannot simply look up the general price quotes of them.
Cheap Hot Rods For Sale – How To Get A Good One
If you’ve never bought a hot rod before, then you need to have a little talk with somebody that has. Talking to a person who actually owns one, will no doubt get you a lot of stories that are not only very entertaining, but also highly informative. Look somebody up in real life or maybe on an Internet forum. Ask them where they got their hot rods and what they would do differently the next time they are going to acquire one. You’re bound to learn a thing or two about cheap hot rods for sale.
Like I said, hot rods don’t exactly come cheap. Your finances may not be sufficient to purchase the dream machine that you really want. Financing is a very important step in the whole hot rod buying process. You will likely require a loan in order to finance a hot rod, so make sure you’ve got a good credit score before you even think about getting your hands on a hot rod. While it is not impossible, it is certainly very hard to buy a car with bad credit. With credit scores above 700, you’re okay. In the 600s, it’s going to be harder. Anything less than that… and you pretty much don’t stand a chance.
In order to get good service, I suggest you look up a lender that specializes in collector car loans. Don’t go to your local bank for a hot rod loan. They simply won’t understand. A collectible car lender will be much better at valuing hot rods at a good price. Your local bank will take much longer to get a good price and there is the risk of them putting too high a price on the car. With a specialty car lender, you can get longer terms and lower interest rates. Some people I’ve talked to have managed to get $75,000 loans with repayment periods of more than a decade!
When getting a loan for a hot rod, ask the lender if he wants you to use one of his approved appraisers for the hot rod appraisal. You don’t want to end up paying for two appraisals!
