    Which Classic Car?

    I am still getting bottom shegged insurance wise.

    Despite being 25 and 4 years NCB(soon to be 26 and 5 years ncb) all my cars that I want(R34 Skyline, E46 M3, M5, EVO etc) I am getting laughed at by insurers

    Where I am getting success though is with classic cars and very reasonable quotes(cheaper then even my astra!)

    I have got a quote on a 944 3.0 and SL320 both at a very reasonable price(~£700), despite being group 20 cars.

    So basically, I want a cheap fun classic car you do not see many off, that I can use as a daily driver, on the track when I want to until I can get some sensible quotes on the cars I want(perhaps when a little older). Being offered £2.5k for a year is the cheapest I am getting so far, oh and trust me I have done all the various insurance tricks.

    Have you tried specialist insurers? For Evo's try, A-Plan, Keith Micheals, Pace Ward Etc. (You will get discount from Pace Ward if you are a member on the MLR)

    Classic?
    Cheap to insure?
    Fun to drive?
    Good on a track?

    You'll be wanting a Mini in that case; buy one with a decent shell and stick a VTEC in the front!
