Default When is it Old School ?

i am seeing many older body Blazer and Jimmy'* on the road ... from 90 - 94 (old box style) getting a revamp and making an appearance. Rust is the biggest obstacle i am seeing, but after that make a nice girthy raw look.

is this the new Old School style as they are reaching (and have reached) the 20 year marker.

my question is ... how many years must pass before i can call my beast Old School ?

and how sweet would it b for a "shovel front end" like the nascar vehicles on the truck, any help with finding a metal (not fiberglass) front end l like that .

I'm sure each person has a different opinion of what'* old school. For me it'* anything from the early 70s back. No fuel injection, no HEI ignition systems. Just a carb and points.

Most states consider a vehicle "Classic" once it'* 25 years old. I feel it'* safe to call it Old School then.
