25 CARS THAT SHAPED BRI­TAIN

The Fed­er­a­tion of British His­toric Ve­hi­cle Clubs wants all clas­sic own­ers to com­plete its new sur­vey. So Giles Chap­man has hand-picked his great­est British cars you will help pro­tect by fill­ing it in…

The FBHVC needs you! Or, at least, it needs to know ev­ery­thing about your keen­ness on clas­sic cars, the events you at­tend, and the opin­ions you have of these pre­cious ve­hi­cles in the wider com­mu­nity. It wants to re­search an ac­cu­rate pic­ture of the clas­sic car world to­day in this coun­try, and im­plores all of us to fill in its de­tailed sur­vey to give it our au­then­tic feed­back.

Hence, the Na­tional His­toric Ve­hi­cle Sur­vey 2016. It could be the most valu­able 10 min­utes you spend this year in shap­ing the old-car en­vi­ron­ment of the near-fu­ture. On page 26 you can find out how to join in by fill­ing it in.

An his­toric ve­hi­cle, in the view of the Fed­er­a­tion, is one made up to 1986, and that set us think­ing: in that con­text, just what are the most in­flu­en­tial cars this coun­try has known? Not just for tech­ni­cal in­no­va­tion or de­sign panache but in British so­ci­ety, daily life and pub­lic con­scious­ness? See if you agree with our 25 British icons – if not, get in touch. We’re look­ing for­ward to hear­ing from you.
