Is a 1999 Vauxhall Tigra worth keeping?

I do not know what to do with my Vauxhall Tigra 1999 with 48000 miles. It is SORN at the minute and garaged. It's in excellent condition but is it worth keeping?

This car is nearly 20 years old so there's a good chance you could get it insured on a classic car policy. We'd definitely recommend getting it out, MoT'd and using it - standing for a long time never did any car a favour. If it's in good condition like you say then it shouldn't need much for an MoT. Hopefully, you'll remind yourself of why you bought it and all the great memories that you made in it - but if not, then at least it'll be much easier to sell compared to a car that hasn't moved for years. In terms of value, it's probably worth asking about £1500-£1800 although you may have to be patient to get the money you want.
