Is my 1993 Rover 620 a future classic?

This will seem like a bit of a 'how long is a piece of string' question, however, I thought I would ask nevertheless. I own and drive daily a 1993 Rover 620 GSi with 39,000 miles. I recently put the car back on the road after ten years laid up in a garage. With various small items it cost £900 to put it back on the road. Is this car ever going to be a classic? Lots of people say I shouldn't drive it every day because it will go up in value. Is this true? I cannot seem to find a reliable source of how much the car is worth. It's pretty immaculate with no rust. Will it ever be worth something or should i just drive it?

We think the Rover 600 is well on its way to future classic status. The 1993-99 Rover 600 came about via the British car maker’s famous collaborative deal with Honda, following in the footsteps of the 200, 400 and 800 before it. The 600 was intended to bridge the gap between the 400 and the 800 flagships, and so basing it around the next-generation Honda Accord seemed ideal for both companies involved. Today, there's only about 100 of these left. Our advice? Use it and enjoy it.
