Which classic should you buy this year? What can you pick up cheaply, and see its value rise dramatically, during the rest of 2016? These are questions many punters are asking themselves.
The thing is, that’s exactly what you shouldn’t be asking. As a good friend of mine pointed out recently, you should be looking to buy the car you want, not the one that’ll generate the most cash. Surely classic ownership is all about enjoyment? If you’re more concerned about making money, why not buy some shares instead, and then check their values in the Financial Times every day? Now that would be fun.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll carry on saying it: unless you’re a dealer, owning an older car should be enjoyable, not merely a way of making money.
