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...

Mazda MX-5

The Mazda MX-5 exploded onto the scene in 1989, and took the world by surprise. It was assumed that the two-seater roadster was a thing of the past, superseded by the all-conquering generation of hot hatchbacks. But the Mazda's success proved there was life in the old format - and its brilliance was in the way its maker had lovingly recreated its own take on classics such as the MGB, Spitfire and Elan, but without the associated oil leaks, dodgy electrics and leaky hoods.

Today, it's firmly established in the classic car scene, and has a massive following. However, because survival rates are high, supply is plentiful - meaining low values. And that's bargain time for anyone who wants one.
