I have a 1973 Triumph Spitfire mkIV and it's incredibly cheap to insure. Last time I had it on the road, fully comp was 5 a month with a 6,500 mile limit.

Heard it said that you can get `classic car` insurance on any car over 10 years old,
i got a quote for my 12 year old rover, but it was the same price as Admiral anyway, so just stuck with that.

There is some great 1970`s original cars here, i too paticulally love the white MK3 Ford Cortina

Behind the `ragtop` in picture3 looks like a nissan or datsun, think that maybe pushing the classic title a bit

None was a patch on the Austin (20hp?) in the first picture. None of your synchro gearboxes and other driving aids there  :)

The Beauford is Kent registered in 1979-1980, but it looks American. The bonnet is enormous - have you any idea what is underneath it, and what make the other components (transmission, running gear) are?

The rag top is a Beauford kit car. I was looking at getting the kit when my BMW 740i wore out. Sadley the car went before I could afford the parts needed to built the kit. I expect I will now see pics of that type turning up as a classic........ Hey Ho. :)

Since when has a kit car, Ford Capri's, a Ford Sierra and Escort been Classic cars?
Any car first registered before 1st January 1973 is exempt from road tax and is shown on the tax disc as "Historic". I believe some insurance companies consider 'classic' as being collectible and likely to increase in value, regardless of age.
What is the white rag-top in the 3rd photo, please?

Now I feel old. Since when has a kit car, Ford Capri's, a Ford Sierra and Escort been Classic cars? The Vauxhalls are rare as most were swept up by road sweepers after a couple of days out of the show rooms. :). That MKlll Cortina is debateable, it looks identical to the one I had back in the late 80's, I will check but I think it could be the one I sold to some one who wanted a 'project' car............. Oh Gods do I feel old........... Great pic Numanfan...... S4.
