Hagerty's Classic Car Madness Tournament Bracket Hagerty

With the 2018 NCAA men’s and women’s basketball tournaments underway, we’re jumping on the bandwagon with our own collector-car bracketology. That’s right, it’s time for our first Collector Car Madness tournament.

The bracket you see above is comprised of the 64 cars that Hagerty most often quoted in 2017, with seeding determined according to that same metric. Incidentally, the Chevrolet Corvette in its various form holds seven of the top eight spots.

But that doesn’t mean we’re picking winners based solely on popularity with Hagerty customers. No, winners of our matchups will be determined by a combination of collector value, historic significance, subjective greatness, and your opinion. Yes, you.

We need your help to tip these matchups one way or another. So weigh in on the Hagerty Forums with why your favorites cars should find a path to the next round. We’ll start posting the first-round results for each region starting on Monday and renew our request for your feedback with each subsequent round.

You can print out our own copy of a bracket here. We’ve also listed all the first-round action below. Are you pulling for an upset? Let us know in the comments.
