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?

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...

Today, the 3-Series is still a relatively common sight, although most of the remaining cars are the quick and exciting six-cylinder cars, with a smattering of left-hand drive M3s also making up the numbers.

The BMW 3-Series is a satisfying classic, that in good, unmodified, condition. is now appreciating noticeably. Although, it's also worth noting that there aren't as many standard cars left, as an equivalent Mercedes-Benz, so there's a huge gulf in values between the good, the bad and the ugly. Which means, if you know your onions, you can find a bargain. The one to have (M3 aside), is the 325i Touring with optional limited slip diff...
