What classic?

25 posts in this topic

Ok, a friend of mine has £30k to spend on a classic, now the car must comply to the following.

More than 5 Cylinders

Be able to cruise nicely for long journeys

Not a out and out sports car, has a 968 for that.

Was thinking tax exempt but then the costs of these cars is very high.

So what do you think is out there?

I was thinking of a UR Quattro which is kind of a sports car.

Mercedes 230 SL / 500 SL - classy cruiser

Aston Martin V8 - may struggle to find a good one under 30k

Mustang V8 - american muscle car

E30 m3?

Was thinking of Jay-k's M3 but thats still up at 40k

Alfa SZ.

The only time that will "Be able to cruise nicely for long journeys" is on the back of a low-loader :roflmao:

Thanks for the replies!

Some interesting suggestions there, we had been thinking of a Merc 280 SL but they are a few more pennies these days, E30 M3 - he has the 968 CS which is similar.

Thinking more wafting about.. with out being garish.

911. That is all.

Ur-Quattro really would disappoint, I'm afraid.

Used Jaguar Mk2 upgraded to 4.2 Litre (RHD) for sale - PistonHeads (Ref 1212786)

When you say classic, do you mean absolutely pure or would something like the above thats a tad away from as it left the shop floor do?

Might be an idea to suggest he does some of the summers classic shows, they would be a great research point.

Are we looking 2 or 4 seater, and would he do work or expect it in concours refurb state?

911 isn't really a wafter is it? Bentley Turbo RT will waft nicely, while depleting the world of it's natural resources.
