Choice of cars for the disabled

I get mobility allowance but cannot afford to fill the tank regularly and feel that a new car every three years is a waste, I have managed to reduce my miles per year to around 6K.

I am thinking along the lines of a classic car with reasonable mpg (30-40mpg?) and something that makes you smile when you get in it!

Morris Minor. Citroen 2CV. VW Beetle.

But can you drive one?

Alternatively, thinking bigger, £3k to £4k buys a Rover 75 2.0CDI diesel and these are likely to assume classic status fairly soon.

A fine looking car from all angles, until the 2004 facelift. Destined to become a 'classic'. 2.0 diesels proving to be good long life cars with excellent clubs and spares back-up. Up to 4 stars.
Much improved performance and visibility, cheaper and better value than early cars. Excellent traction in snow and rough conditions.
