1994 BTCC Vauxhall Cavalier – Classified of the Week

We sometimes wonder what “normal” people do with their free time, what would we do if we weren’t busy finding these gems that have been listed for sale on Car & Classic? Either way, we’ve found a good one. It’s a tough job, but this is what we do! Back in the early ‘90s, a […]

1954 Bentley R-Type Continental – Classified of the Week

Classic cars can be, and often are, utterly beautiful. Styled by human beings, not wind tunnels, classics are the embodiment of a designer’s vision in the purest sense. These wheeled beauties are drawings brought to life without compromise. They are rolling works of art. While driving them is of course a huge part of the […]

2004 MG Xpower SV – Classified of the Week

We’ve spoken about the MG XPower SV before, so when we saw this one pop up on our classifieds there was no way we could ignore it. We love this car’s flawed brilliance, not to mention the sheer lunacy of it. It was a car nobody asked for, it was a car so far out […]

2005 AC Cobra Replica – Classified of the Week

That word. Replica. There’s something about it, something that conjures up images of 17 year-olds gluing XR3i bits to a Popular Plus. Or, at the other end of the scale, there are those unfortunate Toyota MR2 models that have had seemingly endless money thrown at them in order to bear a passing resemblance to a […]

1985 BMW M635CSi – Classified of the Week

There are few pieces of automotive design that exude performance and luxury. Sure, almost everyone will associate Rolls Royce’s Silver Lady with the pinnacle of motoring, but if you’re thinking aggressive performance and comfortable cruising, you’ve probably let BMW’s ‘Shark Nose’ cross your mind. BMW launched the E24 6-Series model back in 1976 but it […]

1968 Jaguar S Type – Classified of the Week

Few cars are as iconic in the classic car world as those from the Jaguar stable. The ‘go to’ choices are of course the E Type and the Mk2, but what about something else? There was no shortage of cars rolling out of the Jaguar factory back in the day, after all.  A case in […]

1950 MGYA – Classified of the Week

As we type this, we’re still reeling from the suspension collapsing on our Rover 800. But we’re not, even in the throes of mechanical rage, going to blame the car’s failure on its Britishness. Britain might not be the automotive powerhouse it once was, instead adopting the policy of becoming a home to the likes […]

1976 Ford Capri L – Classified of the Week

The Ford Capri is, make no mistake, a legendary machine. It was, as Ford put it, the car you always promised yourself. It was a hairy-chested, cigarette smoking, gold-chained symbol of ‘60s machismo. It was our Mustang, and it was our muscle car. It still stands as one of the greats, a car thrashed around […]

1985 Opel Manta – Classified of the Week

There are a number of things that are maximum ‘80s. You could dance with a pipe wrench like Go West. There’s Gordon the Gopher. You could watch people being pranked by Jeremy Beadle. Or, you could drive an Opel Manta, a car that is so ‘80s it makes shoulder pads and big hair look normal.  […]
