1964 Ford Falcon – Classified of the Week

As the 1950s came to a close, the American carmakers were quickly coming to realise that the market was rapidly turning off the idea of big, wayward machines. In the ‘50s it was all about the chrome, the fins, the rocket age and the excess that came with it. More metal was better. However, by […]

2002 Citroen Saxo VTR – Classified of the Week

We’ve seen it happen. We have sat here and, in recent history, watched cars of old go for astronomical amounts of money. And we’re not talking about the rare or the exotic here, oh no. We’re talking about cars we used to see in dealerships, the cars we used to see everywhere, the cars that […]

W126 280SE Mercedes – Classified of the Week

There are few things in life as pleasing as looking down the bonnet of your car only to be greeted by a three-pointed star at the end of it. You look at that and you get a swell of pride, a moment of unabashed joy – you’ve made it, you’ve got a Mercedes-Benz, and you […]

Classified of the Week – 1994 Mercedes-Benz W124

An old Mercedes-Benz, any old Mercedes-Benz, is a well-built, sturdy and reliable machine. However, there are some who move about in Benz circles that will happily tell you one of the finest examples of Mercedes-Benz getting it right was the W124.

1961 Vauxhall Cresta – Classified of the Week

How about this for a stunning slice of British chrome and two-tone loveliness? In the 1950s British car designers had their binoculars out and they were looking at what was going on across the pond. What they saw was chrome, fins, bright colours and a lot of flair. Given that 1950s Britain was a somewhat […]

1964 Morris Minor Twin Cam – Classified of the Week

Something a bit different this week, and with it, something a bit cheeky, too. This is a 1964 Morris Minor, Jim, but not as you know it. To look at, it’s every bit the vision of Issigonis that it was always meant to be. In two-door guise, it’s arguable the best body shape for the […]

1989 Volvo 740 – Classified of the Week

It wasn’t so long ago that Volvos had very little following. Back when they were new, they were lauded for their safety and their comfort, but at the same time, they were readily mocked for their uncompromising ruler and set square design. They were seen as being overtly sensible and predictable, and this combined with […]

1975 MGB GT V8 – Classified of the Week

There’s something quite naughty about a small car with a big engine, so you can imagine how delighted we were when we saw this MGB GT pop up on Car & Classic. Why? Well, because it’s one of the MGBs that was stuffed with a thumping great V8, and that is a recipe for a lot of fun. And probably a lot of money on rear tyres, but that’s all part of it, right?

1961 Mini Seven – Classified of the Week

The Mini was nothing more than a sketch on a napkin at one point. However, the man who penned that sketch was Sir Alec Issigonis, a man with automotive vision the likes of which have very rarely been rivalled. He started as an engineer at Humber before moving to Morris in 1936, where he was […]
