For the love of clas­sics

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

I was rather dis­mayed by the tone of your head­line on the front page of CCW, (8 Fe­bru­ary) – Do Not Buy A Clas­sic Un­til You Read This! – which refers to ‘savvy clas­sic buy­ers’ prof­its over the next 12 months’.

The rea­son I own clas­sic cars is for the love of old clas­sics, not the pos­si­bil­ity of mak­ing a profit (or break­ing even).

Those in it to make money might just as well buy shares. I will con­tinue to too­tle along in my 1947 Austin 8 and hap­pily pay good money to keep it on the road for as long as pos­si­ble. David Hig­gins, On­chan, Isle of Man Clas­sics should never be viewed solely as in­vest­ments. We recog­nise that there’s a clear ap­petite for the lat­est mar­ket in­for­ma­tion, but our hobby should be shaped first and fore­most by peo­ple who love old cars and ac­tively en­joy keep­ing our her­itage alive – Ed.
