‘Importing from dry climates is worth it’
‘People are more educated and selective these days because they’re buying for the long term. As restoration costs are higher, people have learned that it pays to invest more up front and buy the best, so there’s an increasing gap between exceptional cars and average cars. Exceptional original cars needing little or no restoration are the best way to go. The UK climate has never been kind, so we think importing from a dry climate is the way forward.
‘Cars we would tip to watch now are definitely 1990s modern classics. At the higher end are models such as the Ferrari 348 and 360, Porsche 996 C4S and Turbo and Audi S2. Further down, the R129 Mercedes SL and W124 estate will do well, as will Range Rover P38s. The internet has made the world a small place, so don’t be afraid of LHD cars – in time they’ll have a larger audience and more potential buyers.’
