Missing the Tournament? How about cars facing off?

Have we got a bracket tournament for you...


In the absence of the NCAA basketball tournament this year, ClassicCars.com offers its own bracket challenge, a competition in which at its completion we’ll have crowned the inaugural champion of the ClassicCars.com Future Collector Car Tournament of Champions and hopefully provided enough conversation and debate along the way to help guide us through these gloomy and uncertain times.

Here’s the deal, based on vibrancy and search data gathered through ClassicCars.com visitor engagement, we’ve compiled a list of the top 32 future collector cars and have randomly matched those cars up in a tournament-styled bracket for five knockout rounds.

You, the reader, are encouraged to vote for your favorites in each matchup. However, the winner of each matchup ultimately will be chosen by our editorial staff who will explain their reasoning behind each winner of each matchup. Needless to say, we’re preparing for the impending backlash.

Each Wednesday and Friday, we will announce matchup winners through Monday, March 30, when we will announce and crown the champion of the ClassicCars.com Future Collector Car Tournament of Champions. With the random nature in which the first-round matchups were chosen, we are looking forward to seeing some surprises and upsets.
