I lost a lot of weight by following an excellent program! I think this will not be available for a long time, so quiz and go to our website now.

I fancy getting a new classic car for winter, but not really sure what I can get for about £1500. Anyone seen anything worth buying? Read more

Ever driven one? They’re God awful things. Something from the 90’s, Volvo 240/850/940 preferably an Estate will always make a useful winter smoker.

I don't know whether any of you remember a post I made a couple of months ago but I've just bought a 1955 Morris Minor which will arrive today.

I haven't taken my test yet but I'd like to insure it as soon as I can as I have a couple of friends that are prepared to brave the roads with me at the helm.... Read more

Thats true, insurance for an old classic car is so annoying :/

Stormy.

The reply by Keith Moody about how many Standard Vanguards were made was odd. The reference to Pick-up was

strange as I often drove Standard Vanguard saloons during my National Service 1954-1957. They were not very nice to drive having soft suspension which gave a lot of wallowing and the 3-speed column change gearbox was a blighter until you got used to it. But officers transport it often was so it was obviously quite a decent motor.... Read more

Hi Brian. Somehow the reference to 'utes' got taken out of the original question (which was how many utes were made - hence the answer about pick-ups and utes.

I'm concerned about all classic, vintage and veteran cars coming on to the road without any kind of compulsory safety inspection. I realise that modern emissions criteria and brake efficiency tests can't be applied to older vehicles.

A major question is what construction and usage regs will apply? I recall older cars having no or one brake lights from new and only one headlight opeating on dip. Many people had to uprate the lighting and added indicator systems to make cars legal and easier to integrate with modern traffic.... Read more

I currently own a old Astra 1.7dti diesel van which has 225k miles. great little van and very reliable. I only do about 1000miles a year in it

BUT... Read more

An Astra Estate is the obvious choice, being the same as the van, but with glass side windows. As for finding one at your price, the small ads in the local paper maybe? But at £500 or less you need to be careful. Repair costs can easily exceed the value of the vehicle.
As for insurance, maybe there is a specialist broker who'd would cover a commercial vehicle as a private use one? There are a lot of smart VW Transporter based day vans evidently used as leisure vehicles.
