Is there a delay for checking before private classifieds appear in the Classics section? I spent a while at the weekend posting an ad with lots of photos, but there's no sign of it when I search for the car here as though I was a buyer. Read more

Haynes manuals used to be the bible for diy.
A car that age should be easily fixable by a home mechanic.


Up to say £15,000 which modern car is most likely to become collectable over say the next 5 /10 years? For older classics which car might offer similar characteristics to say a Triumph Stag for a similar budget? Thanks Ian Read more

I didn't buy it with this in mind, but I would be pleased if my aluminium Audi A8 SWB W12 sport quattro became a classic. It ticks the boxes - only a few were made, and only about sixty made it to the U.K . in 2005 with right hand drive. It is a superb piece of engineering, a direct descendant of the VW Phaeton which was commissioned by Ferdinand Piech (of Porsche 917 and Audi quattro fame) to be better than anything by Mercedes. Most people have never heard of it and I know of no coverage or reviews by the British motoring press. It was a stop-gap between the old D2 S8 and the D3 S8 which used the V10 Lambo engine (same power, less torque). If you can find one, and it took me six months to find mine, it will probably be much less than £15,000 - at present.

Many years ago my wife had a VX CHevette. She hated it so it was moved on.
I bought her a Ford RS2000 instead. She did like that.
I wish I had kept it though!


I went to view one with a friend a couple of years back, a very rare late white 4dr saloon on an A plate. Basic as it gets but solid and running sweetly. He bought it for £700 with plans to modify it. Eventually he lost interest and flogged it on to another chap who squeezed a 16v 2.0 red top into it then put it up for sale again as a half finished project again. Poor thing seems destined to never be complete.

It did drive rather well, a real blast from the past with supple suspension and feelsome unassisted steering. It deserved an owner who was prepared to spend good money and time on it but sadly the low value even in perfect condition keeps killing it.

My good friend bought a lovely Mk II Ford Escort with a Burton tuned 2.0 Pinto which is a joy to drive and look at. Huge difference in value compared to the much rarer Chevette ensures that money will be spent keeping this tip top.
