Allybasher....sorry for the delay in replying...I have been away from home for a few days. My Classic car is a 1953 Sunbeam Talbot Mk11a. Lovely old girl...but 19mpg and 0 to 60 in a fortnight...but I love her all the same.
Go well.

Excellent, I love the Sunbeam Talbot, they are lovely looking cars, made excellent rally cars in their day too. I keep promising myself that one day I'll get a classic and that would fit the bill nicely.

My eldest son has just acquired a much more modern classic, a 1994 Range Rover Vogue. It is a bit tatty but great to drive. Not quite as economical as the Up though.

In my younger days I was on placement in a garage where the owner had a few classics he had two sunbeams I had to push them out the mot bay every morning and back in on the evening for 2 years, at first I liked them but by the end that turned to hate, he also had a triumph acclaim 1977 in mint condition I nearly bought it as my first car but insurance was unbelievable Edited by: spud

If I had to push mine in and out of the garage every day for 2 years....then I am sure I would hate it too!

Go well.

Our Up! is great. Low mileage at the moment and still running in, so taking it steady. Great cars for the price. Future Classics....I agree.....Love every thing about it.Can'twait to drive it again....or wash it ...or pat it on the back.LOL.
Go well.

I had a 1987 Yugo 45A in 1988. I have fond memories of it, it was the car I owned when I got married. I would prefer the Olds now though.

Yeah, not sure it's actually a classic as such on reflection. I do have a sneaking interest in old Eastern Bloc cars though.

The Internet is a wonderful thing. For researching old cars that is......

It sure is Ally. They all want to marry me as well as long as I send them my bank account details. I think I'm on a winner

Of course the Yugo is a classic car, it's based mechanically on a Fiat 127, and styling-wise on an Autobianchi A112. Technically a classic car is anything over 20 years old anyway, so perhaps you mean 'desireable' classic car.

Anyway, my Yugo has a road/race engine out of a Fiat X1/9, does that score more classic points? ;)

Another guilty secret, I'd love a Lada Riva with a Fiat 2 litre twin cam and decent suspension and brakes. I'm sure the medication will help though.
