Gardner a full Classic!!
Itís Official, the high end Gardner eight-in-line is now a Classic.
Based on style, power, quality and innovation, many of us have called our Gardner car a classic. Now many can be called a Classic, the change came about when the Classic Car Club of America officially recognized the high end eight cylinder models as full Classics.
The high end models include:
1925 - 1926 model 8A
1926 - 1927 model 8B
1927 - model 90
1928 - model 8-90
1928 - 1929 model 95
1929 - model 130
1930 - model 150
1931 - model 158
With this honor, Gardner joins the ranks of Duesenberg, Packard, Cord and other marques as an outstanding example of automotive engineering and styling.

Why We Define Classics As We Do
“Usually the cars recognized as “CCCA Classics” were built in
limited production numbers and were quite expensive when new.
As a group, they represent the pinnacle of engineering, styling and
design for their era.”
The recognition is not something won, rather something earned by Russell and Fred Gardner when high standards, and engineering, led to the building of “That Distinctively Different Motor Car”.
