Any point in keeping the miles down on a classis Renault?

I have a Renault 19 1993 RT with 39,000 miles on the clock. I love driving the car, but will the car ever truly be a classic? It is the saloon version so quite rare these days, the garage which services it says it is immaculate underneath for its age. I do not mind driving it, but if it will be a classic I would like to keep the mileage down. However the big question is will it ever be a real classic?

No. It will be an oddball and worth exhibiting at Renault events but it isn't ever going to be worth a lot of money.
