A classic car is loosely defined as any older car that is worth being restored versus thrown away. Does a hundred years old fit the bill? These photos were taken when these future classics were brand new and shiny. Discover the evolution of automobiles through these unique historical photos.

Ford's widely available 1908 Model T is often misidentified as the first automobile. However, Karl Benz created the modern automobile many years earlier in 1886 with the Benz Patent-Motorwagen.
