Photos of classic cars rally in Tehran


Classic-car events attract considerable attention in Iran, which is somewhat surprising , because such a large portion of the country’s population was born after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.Classic and off-road car owners in the Iranian capital have gathered to exhibit their vehicles. As our correspondent Hamid Javani reports, a large number of enthusiasts came to the event in Tehran, which had educational aspects too.A classic car is an older automobile; the exact definition varies around the world. The common theme is of an older car with enough historical interest to be collectable and worth preserving or restoring rather than scrapping.Cars 100 years and older typically fall into the antique class.
