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...

Mercedes-Benz W123

The Mercedes-Benz W123 is considered by many to be the quality high watermark for its maker - and certainly it seems that way almost 30 years on from the last one rolling off the line in Stuttgart. The W123 has a great following and is available in a number of versions, and although the CE Coupe is nice to look at, the estate is just so usable, especially in 280TE form.

There's little chance of the popularity of the W123 dropping off - as Mercedes-Benz has great parts and specialist support, its own magazine, and scene to carry it. Definitely a classic car to buy, keep and enjoy for the long haul - but best not try to run it properly on a budget.
