When you have saved up all your hard earned money (which is sometimes harder to hide from loved ones and children than it is to earn) and you are starting to seriously scour through all the glossy Classic Car magazines to finally realise your dream, it is not always as easy as you think finding the right car for you.
There are a lot of options out there to choose from. Do I want a fixed head or a convertible? Do I buy a 2+2? Will it fit the mother in law in if I do? Best go for the 2 seater then, all these things have to be taken into account.
Do I choose a nice small car that will fit in the garage like an MG, Morgan or a Triumph? Or do I want a big muscle car like a Mustang, Jenson or Cobra?
Is the muscle car idea to fast and flash for me? Can I get into the smaller 2 seater sports car like the Austin Healey with my back problem? Is the ride to hard? Are the seats too uncomfortable after long journeys? All these questions are sensible ones but they will not be answered in your glossy Classic Car Magazines.
However before parting with your hard earned monies you could answer some of your questions and put your mind at ease buy trying one of our classic cars out for size.
If you have narrowed your ideals down to a couple of choices, then why not click on our list of cars that can be hired out for self drive and take one out for a day or a weekend and see how you get on with it.
The price for hiring a classic car is a small one to pay for your peace of mind and you can also show your partner how much fun it is to be a classic car owner, and that it is a good idea to spend your life savings on one.
