    Good to know I’m not the only one to regularly check the cars for sale webpages to see what old and interesting machinery is on offer. I’ve even purchased a few!

    Pre WWII cars don’t really do it for me – but I like the Aston though. I don’t think I’d ever buy one as just the thought of the maintenance costs would make me sweat. But it is very handsome and, despite the performance penalty, the idea of a large capacity twin cam six humming away is quite seductive.

    The most fun is finding something charming and interesting at modest cost. Any fool can get something eye-catchingly exotic, fast and fun to drive if your budget is $250,000. Even $100,000 brings a wide range of lovely cars with plenty left over for maintenance (E-type anyone? – or maybe even one of the XK’s). But if your limit is $20k or even $10k that’s a bit more of a challenge.

    For no more than $10k how about a Spridget (there’s a few for sale and some below $10k), Citroen GS1200/1220 (none for sale at the moment I think, but there has been several on the market over the last year or so), Porsche 924 (even a couple of 944s
