WHAT WE'D BUY FOR £6294

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

DAVID SIMISTER EDI­TOR EN­JOY­MENT

That’s what the an­nual State Pen­sion’s worth. I’d in­vest it in an en­tire year at clas­sic events. Re­tire­ment’s a time to en­joy your­self, so count me in for Essen, Le Mans, Sil­ver­stone and more.

JAMES SADLIER MAN­AG­ING EDI­TOR BUY A BOX SET

I’ve al­ways ad­mired the Porsche Boxster so I’d in­vest in a lowmileage ex­am­ple in the hope it would ap­pre­ci­ate and pro­vide enough money to buy an early 911 some time in the fu­ture.

GERVAIS SEY­MOUR PRO­DUC­TION EDI­TOR LIT­TER

Good­ness! Will I be get­ting as much as that from Jan­uary? In that case I’ll go for some­thing youth­ful that will whisk me to and from the bowls club in style and com­fort. A sedan chair and at­ten­dants.

DAVID BROWN AS­SO­CI­ATE EDI­TOR VW TYPE 3

Volk­swa­gen doesn’t pro­duce mo­bil­ity scoot­ers, top of the range or oth­er­wise, so I will in­vest in a Type 3 Fast­back or Vari­ant.

MUR­RAY SCULLION NEWS EDI­TOR US MUS­CLE

I’d prob­a­bly have a Chevro­let Ca­maro Z28. Or maybe even a cheap 1990s Ford Mustang.

CALUM BROWN WEB PRO­DUCER MINICAB

I’d buy a taxi, and see what money I could make, see­ing as the State Pen­sion is an in­sult. Taxi!

NICK LARKIN EDI­TOR AT LARGE BUS AC­TION

I could af­ford to move into a bet­ter class of mo­bile home with that sort of ex­tra money com­ing in. I al­ready have my good eye on a 1946 Ley­land Lytham dou­ble-decker. Ooh, hold tight now. Ding-dong.
