Certainly seems low cost to insure.

My MK Indy was the cheapest car to insure for me.

A push bike is just fine so long as it's dry and your not in a hurry

Nope mine is very water tight wipers are rubbish but never a single leak. My first drive in it was taking it home from Wales to Aberdeen, 3 days of torrential rain and strong winds! Apart from being slow and noisy it was a comfortable drive

Are you talking about classic cars or vintage?

I suspect Mr Whippy refers to vintage cars.

I'd imagine discussion would rage amongst enthusiasts as to the age at which a car becomes classic and then vintage.

Plenty of personal opinion would join the conversation as well

I think many classic cars were well known for leaking like sieve's and BL cars from the 80's leaked even from new

Yeah its a bit odd all this classification and very much open to interpretation, I'd have said mine was a vintage car but some call it late vintage, with cars like Model T & Y's as true vintage cars. However there was a considerable amount of cross over of models at the time with very old designs still being sold new along with the latest ones but as cheap base models. I think there was not so much a push to bring out the latest and greatest as there is today. For me classics are from the 60 & 70's, modern classics from the 80's onwards. Cars these days seem to considered out dated after just 10 years which is really wasteful.

I thought there were official dates that cars had to meet to be either Veteran (up to 1918) or vintage (1919-1930). Those are the dates accepted by shows, competitions etc.
