In truth, classic car ownership is a bit of a mixed bag. On one hand, you’ve got the way in which it can be difficult and expensive to get hold of replacement parts, along with that rather nagging concern that repairs may be necessary at any time. That being said, the joy of piloting a true automotive legend is so incredibly immense that it comprehensively outweighs any and all potential downsides.
So while there will always be downsides to it, classic car ownership is a rare joy!
But here’s a question – does it really have to be so rare? Contrary to popular belief, the answer is no…no at all. Classic car ownership is usually associated with those that have pretty endless stockpiles of cash to play with, though it is in fact perfectly possible to invest in a high quality classic car for a surprisingly low price. There will always be options on the market that fetch eye-watering sums, but it’s not to say that these are the only classic cars worth considering.
