Classic cars are a treasure to own and drive.
The workmanship in classic cars is hard to find any more. Some people own classic cars to simply admire and care for them. Others enjoy the ride. Classic car ownership is a pastime enjoyed by car enthusiasts all over the world – and why not you as well?
Whether it's an MGB GT or a Morris Minor Traveller, you can always turn heads with a classic car. Choosing the right classic you’ll need to consider your budget, mechanical prowess and the options open to you:
- Completely restored classic - These classic cars are available from Autobarn right now. This is the fastest fast way to begin driving in style. Why not come along to Autobarn and check our classic cars to find a make and model that match your interests.
- Unrestored models - These classics often show signs of rust, dents, scrapes, and their interiors may be worn or split. If you're willing to invest a bit of time and money into repairing a car, this is a good option. Many of these cars have strong structural integrity and can be restored to like-new condition using a specialist repairer such as Autobarn.
- Non runner classic car - Although these can be obtained for very little money, they often require expensive repairs and may not be worth the time and effort needed. This option is best left to those who can determine the potential value of a car in relation to the costs of repairs or restoration. If this interests you then call Autobarn for some advice and support.
- Single owner classics - These have been used gently and stored in a garage. Though more expensive than other used vehicles, and also harder to find, these are excellent purchases, but the trick is finding them. Like a needle in a haystack!
The 6 main reasons to own a classic
Most of us tend to drive a modern "tin box" around daily. We may have forgotten what it’s like to drive a car that was built thirty or forty years ago. Or, the younger motorist may never have had this experience at all. So here’s our top 6:
LITTLE OR NO DEPRECIATION - Buy wisely and the best classic car you can afford. You should always be able to get your money back and you may well be into a good profit in a few years. Just look how much a Ford Escorts is fetching today, against a few years ago.
NO TAX - (Roadfund) All pre 1973 cars have no road tax fee.
NO MOT - All pre 1960 vehicles are exempt from the MOT test, a saving of around £50 just for the test.
BE DIFFERENT - Have you noticed that everyone is driving a Passatt, or Insignia how common are they? Be different in a classic.
CHEAP INSURANCE - For around £100 you can insure a classic vehicle... however, please note, you may have to have another car as your runaround and you’ll be subjected to limited mileage.
THEY ARE GREAT FUN!
