If you find that modern cars are something of a soulless enterprise, perhaps you might consider a classic car. Anything over 15 years old is defined as a classic, but this does not mean that you should go out and buy the first old car that you see or, more importantly, like. Every car depreciates in value the moment it rolls off the forecourt, but some have kept their value and esteem more than others. Looking at just UK models, here are some of the best. It should be noted that if you do buy a classic car, you will need to protect it from the elements. A Garage Doors Bristol based company is one of the best for ensuring that the garage is sealed up correctly at night. Find a Garage Doors Bristol supplier here.

  1. Aston Martin DB5. A true 1960s classic sports car. It is famous for being featured as James Bond’s first “special” car. Standard models did not have an ejector seat, revolving license plates or be bulletproof but the look and sound of the car truly sold it. It was so popular the last Bond, Daniel Craig, used one in the modern films.
  2. E Type Jaguar. The direct competitor to the DB5, the E-Type is an absolute classic. It was created by Jaguar to be an affordable sports car. It succeeds at this admirably, and it’s only in the modern era that it’s become a luxury purchase.

  1. A Morris, MG Mini or Mini Cooper. Once the standard car in the UK, the Mini has a place in all car enthusiasts’ hearts. It’s not hard to be still won over by the look and feel of these mighty cars. Collectors and owner clubs still abound, and parts are still being made due to its continued popularity.
  2. Land Rover/Defender. Built to last, and they truly do, the Landrover is one of the most versatile vehicles ever created by the UK motor industry. Designed to be fixed on the roadside if they break down and are supposed to be able to go anywhere, you’ll still see some of them in the service of the British Armed forces. Though they may not be the most sporty of cars to look at, they can carry everything and transport anything, wherever you want to go. Great for festivals, brilliant for green roading or road travel, the Land Rover really has it all.
