Gas prices should never be a factor, and usually aren't. Few people I know that own collectible classics care about fuel. Typically they are weekend fun cars that are at cruise nights and shows. Then factor the antique low insurance costs and exempt tags. On average you are allowed a couple of thousand miles a year. I am lucky to drive half that on mine. If I burn a tank, even at 8 MPG, who cares? It's so minimal for the enjoyment attained. I pay less than 400 per car annually with high HP vehicles. If a Lincoln is your dream car, buy one. Life's too short to fret over 2 or 3 tanks of gas a month.

Well unless the next president does something about the ridiculous CAFE mileage standards that are currently in place, we will be mandated to buying compacts and sub-compacts in a decade even if gas costs $1 per gallon!
