I read with in­ter­est, if not sur­prise, that 1970s-80s cars are now gain­ing in­ter­est and pop­u­lar­ity as fu­ture clas­sics.

The irony of this sce­nario is that the cars I cov­eted as a young man were way above my pay scale. So, dreams they re­mained and now, sev­eral decades later with their prices on the up and min­i­mum wages and aus­ter­ity the new buzz words they are once again out of my reach.

So, with this in mind I would like to help oth­ers get ahead for the next line of clas­sics of maybe 30 years away. Might I sug­gest the fol­low­ing: Re­nault 16TX, Fuego and 5 GT Turbo. Austin Al­le­gro Equipe and Es­tate; Vaux­hall Cav­a­lier SRi MkII (hatch­back). Ford Sierra 2.8i 4x4 and StreetKa. Subaru XT. Mazda RX8. Any Dai­hatsu. Re­nault Twingo 0.9 TCe; Toy­ota Corolla T Sport. ❚J V Her­ring, Great Shelford, Cam­bridge
