Using an older car and keeping it in good condition will give you lower insurance premiums.

Some of your readers pay large sums for car insurance. Having held a licence for 57 years, not without some minor insurance claims in the distant past, I have been able to insure a 1994 Volvo 440 GLT on a limited mileage policy for £97. Keeping an older car in good nick and using it sparingly can compensate for the possible maintenance bills.
