Question Is an '84 533i a classic?

I just purchased a 1984 533i 5 sp from a private owner. Although it had a salvage title, it steers and handles quite well. there is no body damage that I can see, and no damage to the interior. Would this be considered a classic?

There is no hard-cut definition of the term... if it's a classic to you, that's all that matters .

Congratulations on the purchase.

I agree. If you think it is, then it is.

I surely think it is. I consider my 1987 325 a "young classic"

There even is a mailing list for young classics at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/youngclassics/
