Can i claim a historical vehicle i bought as a investment? only drive to car shows and test drives.

If this vehicle is part of a business, you can claim the vehicle and expenses related to it.

Also, maybe this is more of a Hobby for you.  You can deduct expenses from Hobby Income.

Either way, the key element is making some sort of income from these endeavors with the car that creates income.

This was a personal investment. Can I claim depreciation?

No, I bet it's a beautiful car.  Here's what the IRS says: "You can't claim depreciation on property held for personal purposes. If you use property, such as a car, for both business or investment and personal purposes, you can depreciate only the business or investment use portion."
