We think so - although for many people, the jury is still out. Sometimes cars that are a little more 'mundane' or still in regular service thanks to decent reliability can take a little while to get to classic status. However, as younger enthusiasts are priced out of traditional classics like Morris Minors and Triumph Spitfires, they turn their attention to interesting cars from the 1980s and 1990s.
