Top 30: Top classics in 2013

Since HJClassics went online in April 2013, we've been counting which reviews you've been reading, and have been keeping a monthly track in our Top 10 Section. But for our year-end chart, we've totted up how many Google searches have landed in the website reviews section, to come up with a definitive list of what classic cars currently float your boat. And there's a lot of you into classic cars - we're now running at around half a million page views per month, and it's growing quickly.

The number one car - our Classic Car of The Year - won't be a surprise to anyone who regularly follows the charts, but there are some interesting entrants in our Top 30 for 2013. The conclusions that we can draw from the Top 30? Internet-using classic car fans are in love with cars from the 1980s, with the comfortable majority harking, or at least reaching their maximum popularity, during the 1980s. There is a smattering of 1960s and '70s mainstays, but what you seem to really appreciate usable retro cars. It will be interesting how these trends develop throughout 2014.

Enjoy the countdown...

The T5R came in lairy paint schemes, and with 250bhp, it was more than capable of lighting its tyres at any opportunity.

But the fast saloon and estate car was also a very capable long distance cruiser, and came with a great soundtrack thanks to its musical five-cylinder engine. And today, it has a small but very loyal following - just don't let Top Gear get hold of one...
