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...

BMW 5-Series (E34)

Younger readers might not quite appreciate just how much of a revolution the 1988 BMW 5-Series was. Its predecessor's styling was rooted in the 1970s, even if the technology was all there. What the E34 did was bring BMW into the post-Audi 100 aerodynamic age - rebooting the company's mid-liner's styling in a way that's still connected with today's products.

The 5-Series is more interesting in high powered form - the six- and V8-cylinder engined versions are lovely to drive, and offer bags of performance and dynamics for enthusiast owners. The M5 is brilliant, and handled by its own review.
