Classic Car Hire started at about the same time in both the UK and the USA in the mid 1990s and has spread to most countries where people love to drive classic cars.  In some parts of Europe, notably Austria, Germany,  the Netherlands and Switzerland classic cars are generally referred to as 'Oldtimers' rather than classics.  'Classics' is the term normally given to the cars from the fifties, sixties and seventies.  There are also numerous companies renting out modern 'classic' and performance sports cars which in the USA are generally referred to as 'exotic' cars.  You can hire anything from an AC Cobra to a Volkswagen, a 1916 Crossley or 1929 Studebaker right through to the latest 2010 model Bentley, Ferrari or Lamborghini.
