There’s no denying that something like a vintage Porsche 911 would be a worthy addition to any car collection. They look great, have that glorious flat-six engine and come with solid German build quality. But, on the other end of the spectrum, which classic cars aren’t worth collecting?

I’m sure we all have the same dream of finding a neglected person old classic needing some attention and restoring it to its former glory. A car with enough problems to make it charming, but not enough to drive you crazy.

When you find this car unicorn, it can be resurrected and cherished for years to come. But, for a host of reasons, not all cars are worth all that effort. In fact, some classic cars are best avoided.

That’s why we want to find out your picks for classic cars not worth collecting.

Maybe you like the rugged styling of some American muscle, but know that the rusty body panels that might come with a 1970s Plymouth Road Runner aren’t worth the heartache. Or maybe you had your eye on an old Aston Martin Lagonda but afraid for the difficulty of the tasks you might be faced with bringing it back to life.

Then, when you consider the investment you might need to bring an old car back to life, the complexity of a rebuild and the exorbitant costs it entails might put some cars out of the question. I’m looking at you, Nissan 300ZX.

Heck, you might even think a car isn’t worth picking up because it’s ugly, unreliable, slow, or just not worth the money.

There are a host of reasons why a classic car isn’t worth collecting. So we want to know which vehicles do you think this applies to?

Let us know your picks for cars not worth adding to your car haul, and we’ll round up some of the best answers later today.
