Guide To The Best Classic Car Forums

Guide To The Best Classic Car Forums For The Hot Rod and Antique Car Enthusiast

  -Alan Arnell

There is so much out there on the Internet.  Our beloved internet is full of useful and fun info about classic trucks and cars.  My favorite resource for learning about my car hobby is checking out classic car forums.  I spend more time than I am willing to admit surfing the web checking out posts about Tri-Five Classic Chevys.  Classic Car forms are a great place to seek advice, see pictures and read fun posts from other car lovers, tradesmen and mechanics.  Over time you may even create online friends with the same interests.
Here are some of the more popular Car Forms I have found on the internet.  On these forms you can discuss and cuss car subject matter from antiques to classics and everything in between.

1955, 1956 and 1957 Chevrolets are the topic of discussion on this forum. It currently has over 38,000 members and over 1,000,000 posts all about the Tri-Five Chevys. While it is a specialized forum we wanted to list it first since we have such a close bond to these cars.
Online discussion forums covering Chevrolet from 1912 until present.Including history, clubs, chat, Chevy subject matter experts, VIN decoding, technical assistance

The Jalopy Journal & H.A.M.B (Honkey Ass Message Board) have become some of the leading websites speaking the voice of the working man, a tool in the toolbox of the guy that does it
Beginning in 1999 this forum has been providing definitive answers on all things Hot Rod. From the basic “how to” to elaborate builds. They are currently 153,000 members strong.
This forum is so large it is now divided into separate sub-forums. There are thousands and thousands of members discussing everything to do with hot rods, customs, low riders, rat rods, and more. They have done a great job organizing their site!
Classic Motorsports Magazine has gathered a global audience and is well known throughout the Internet as having very popular classifieds for selling classic cars and parts.

Since 2000 more than 750,000 people have signed up for this forum that discusses everything from Acura to Yugo. It is simply one of the largest auto enthusiast communities in the world.
This forum is all about those low budget, rusty Rat Rods. Those patina pieces of work that are put together in some neighborhood garage usually out of spare parts. That is just how the Rat Rodders like them and if you are looking for advice, parts or just want to become part of the community, there are almost 30,000 members on this forum waiting for you to join.
This site is a mix of blog and forum. There are great articles from its members along with the site’s own authors. There is also a great classifieds section along with vendor news and event postings going on across the country.
If you are interested in discussing the GM LS engine for your classic car application then this is the forum for you. With over 200,000 members you are sure to find someone that can answer your questions.

This forum is based around classic as well as new model pro-touring cars. It has been active since 2003 and has since then become 23,000 members strong.
This is another forum focusing on pro-touring cars and was started in 2000. There are 46,000 members with over 5,000 of them being regularly active. Chances are if you belong to Letral-G, then you probably are a member of this forum too. Maybe they will join forces someday?

Most are familiar with Edmunds, but what you might not have know is that they have a forum dedicated to classic cars and trucks. It is a pretty good resource to turn to if you are looking for expert advice.
