Top 10: Classics on the rise in 2014

We're predicting that 2014 will be the year of the Japanese classic, because it marks the quarter century of a number of truly groundbreaking cars from the Far East. Given that 1989 will seem a bit too recent for some recent, it's also worth remembering that in 1974 - 40 years ago - the Volkswagen Golf first appeared, changing the family car market forever.

Perhaps that's because the car has such a low survival rate (for which, we need to blame corrosion), but most of these pleasant little Rovers seemed to have disappeared off our streets before they hit their 10th birthday.

However, 30 years on, a few remain, and there seems to be lots of interest in the best example. Expect those that come up for sale now to be keenly bidded on - especially if Dave starts re-running Keeping Up Appearances.
