1. ANTIQUE 1950-1979 The antique era of the personal water craft world began in 1950 and ended in 1979. These were the years of discovery, design, testing and wonder. Wondering if these product were going to make it from the curiosity factor to the sales pitch and out the door in the hands of a new enthusiast. Some models are rare, and many only exist in photos and old news articles, and a few are barn finds and have been reconditioned.

3. CLASSIC 1990-1998 Older model personal water craft with enough historical interest, no longer produced and worth restoring rather than destroying. This was the era of runabouts. The sit down crazy began to push back on the founding stand up platforms and racing rose and declined during this period. This was also the transitional time of friends, family and touring.
