Fe­male own­ers up

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

A new study has re­vealed that fe­male clas­sic car own­er­ship has risen from eight per cent in 2015 to 9.5 per cent in 2016.

The re­port, con­ducted by in­surer Foot­man James, an­a­lysed the de­tails of 10,255 women and 55,000 poli­cies, and re­vealed that the main fac­tor for clas­sic car own­er­ship for 21 per cent of women was nos­tal­gia.

One such en­thu­si­ast, Jen­nifer Ne­gus, says: ‘My def­i­ni­tion of a clas­sic car is one with style that doesn’t blend in. I own a 1991 Nis­san Fi­garo, def­i­nitely a clas­sic no mat­ter what some say!’

Vin­tage Sports-Car Club com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager James Tay­lor says: ‘Many of our mem­bers’ daugh­ters and grand­daugh­ters com­pete in our club events.’
