    That’s very cool that you have that family history.

  • Will Wynn says:

    A very nice looking car for sure.

  • Will Wynn says:

    I’m with you on that one Adrian. The old Porsche 911s from the 60’s and 70’s are the best looking. I especially like those with lots of chrome.

  • Peter Thomas says:

    I would love to own a Triumph Herald 13/60 convertible in white – my first car on the road. I had a Morris 1000 before I learned to drive, but that never made it past it’s MOT!

  • Adrian Bold says:

    I would love to own a 1963 Porsche 911 as it’s such an iconic shape.

  • Carolyn Robinson says:

    Aston Martin DB9 James Bond

  • A.E. ADKINS says:

    Would love an Austin A35 as a family member designed it!!

  • Andrew McGrath says:

    My TVR S2.

  • Troy Easton says:

    Got to be the Datsun Bluebird, such a nice car so cool.

  • Adam Evans says:

    My classic has to be the Austin A40, The Austin A40 Farina is a small, economy car introduced by Austin in saloon (1958) and A40 Countryman (1959), would love this classic in Agate Red with black trim.

  • Pam Cooper says:

    Morris Traveller as I always wanted one, but never got one.

  • Shaun Burnap says:

    Good Luck Everybody

  • Lee Osborne says:

    At 18 years of age I used to own a 1972 MGB GT in Teal Blue. I was told it was unusual as it had a “sunken grill”. Still unclear 45 years later how unusual or special the sunken grill was.

  • Chris says:

    Thank you.

  • Leslie Evans says:

    Own Land Rover Mk II, very good for driving in country.

  • Will Wynn says:

    A nice looking car Steven. Very cool.

  • Steven Palmer says:

    I would love to own a Datsun 240Z because I had one when I was 18 and it was the best car I ever owned.

  • Bryan Evans says:

    I would like to own a 1950s Vauxhall Velox. A car very much designed with American car influences of the era with plenty of chrome. It was my dads first car so I would love to experience one.

  • Elizabeth Ryley says:

    My husband owns a midlife crisis TR7

  • Karen Black says:

    Its a classic to me, some may just say old, but we are getting there. I own the first type Landrover Freelander and I love it. Had the car since it was almost new. It has done almost enough miles to get me to the moon and it rarely lets me down. It is cabriolet, so when my friends little girl was going to her prom (her friends let her down), my husband donned a pink shirt, covered he car in pink ribbons to match her dress, took the top off the car and seated her, in her fabulous gown in the middle of the back seat and gave her the full chauffer experience….though he did get a few comments when driving home on his own! Its good off road, when its needed and though I feel I pay enough road tax to own the roads, I hope I own it for many years to come, in fact my grand daughter asked when she was little if I would give it to her when she could drive! My Mother owned a 1960’s Jag, I used to say when I was older I would write a book about the places we had broken down only it would be too heavy to carry…:)

  • Will Wynn says:

    Yep Sean, I agree with you, the Lamborghini Miura is certainly in my dream garage.

  • Will Wynn says:

    A Series 1 Mini is on my personal wish list.

  • Harry Anning says:

    I’m restoring a 40 Yr old Mini at the moment, but would love an old split screen Morris Minor.

  • Bruce Kirkman says:

    1958 Austin Healey ‘frogeye’ Sprite. What a wonderful little car! I bought mine in 1980 for £25.00. It was a basket-case and, though I started working on it as soon as I brought it home, life got in the way and it was never completed. I’ll be 73 next week and, once I’ve finished building a house for my retirement, the frogeye is next. Never ones to choose the easy route, a friend and I built an English Wheel so I can roll out the body panels required to finish the project. Skills aren’t there yet though. Looking to be inspired at the show!

  • Denise Currie says:

    Our car is part of the family and is getting on for a classic, She is a 2001 Vauxall Zafira the best car we could ever own, she has taken us to Spain 7 times and I have no intention of replacing her.

  • Seán Freerman says:

    The classic among classics – the Lamborghini Miura.
    Something on the wishlist not currently parked in the Garage!

  • Clare Brookes says:

    Hey! I’m the lucky owner of a 1500 Ford Consul Corsair (1965). He’s been in my life for 50 years this year!! It was my Mum and Dad’s wedding present from my grandparents and today was their anniversary actually. Unfortunately Dad’s no longer with us.
    It was the car I travelled home in from hospital when I was born. It’s about to have some restoration work so I need to get some tickets to the restoration show so I can have some extra wonga to spend on ‘Kermit’.
    BTW, the Corsair also celebrates 60 years this year .

  • Alan Bradbury says:

    I would love to own a Vauxhall Nova SR from the mid-80’s. Great little car and one I have fond memories of.

  • Barry Duggan says:

    50 years ago I owned a white MGB GT, I loved this car but when my family came along the two seater was no longer suitable. It was great to drive and the engine had a distinctive sound.

  • Will Wynn says:

    Hi Chris, wow. Well done to you. That is long-term ownership.

    In my 20s I owned a Vauxhall Chevette (or Shove it, as we called it). A lime green saloon version. I cannot remember now if it was a two door or four door, but at the time I thought is was cool enough, as it got me around.

  • Will Wynn says:

    Yep, wouldn’t we all. Nice.

  • Will Wynn says:

    A Datsun Bluebird SSS (Super Sport Sedan), now there’s a car you will rarely see these days.

  • Will Wynn says:

    Wouldn’t we all. ;D

  • Donna musk says:

    I would love a Vauxhall Firenza Sport SL as my Dad tested them at Millbrook in the 1970s. He had photos and memories of his time there and have always wanted to go to this show at NEC Birmingham.

  • Eva Appleby says:

    I would love to own a classic Porsche.

  • Barry Cash says:

    I own a 1982 Astra 1300S Estate. It was my company car and then my Dad bouight it when it was replaced. I got it back when my Dad died in 2007 and couldn’t bear to part with it. Still needs lots of TLC.

  • Neil Medler says:

    Mk1 XR2 – restoration to be complete in a couple of weeks

  • Louise Evans says:

    My partner and I have both owned classic cars, best of all for me it has to be the Triumph Herald 1200. There are more 1200s around, and if your a first time buyer in to the world of classic cars, the Triumph Herald is one classic car to look out for.

  • Mrs April Morgan says:

    I would like to own a Morgan sports car because they are beautiful.

  • Rob McCarthy says:

    My father in law had a late 1970’s gold Datsun Bluebird SSS which I learned to drive in. For a learner driver it seemed to have massive power! But alas it went to the scrap yard in the late eighties, it would have been a great classic to have around now. Took driving test in a little Ford Fiesta, quite disappointing.

  • Mari Evans says:

    My classic is a Morris Minor Traveller, built in 1971 in Maroon B, with red trim. I have owned it since 2000. I have travelled to many shows such as the National Rally, Gaydon Autumn Classic, celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Morris Minor and other smaller classic car events.

  • Adam Boddy says:

    I own a Triumph 1500 FWD produced by Standard-Triumph from 1970 to 1973.
    Mine was built in 1972, in French blue with black trim. I bought this car so I could keep up with modern day traffic. I take my classic car to local classic car shows and enjoy every moment, talking to like minded classic car owners.

  • Paul Le Teace says:

    Would love to win, to look for parts and inspiration to finish my 1961 Mini.

  • David Roberts says:

    I’d love to have an Aston Martin DB4 Mark 5, from 1962… blinking’ gorgeous and the forerunner to the enigmatic DB5.

  • Chris Bradley says:

    I still own my 1st car, a Vauxhall Chevette, purchased from a family member in 1991.

  • Alan Jones says:

    I would love to own a Vauxhall Nova GTE, having find memories of the car my wife won in a competition at the Vauxhall race day at Oulton Park in 1990. Unfortunately a growing family meant it had to be exchanged for an Astra, but would love to rekindle the memories.

  • Louis Gargour says:

    Hi, I own an old 1969 Porsche coupe which has a 2 litre engine and is a sports model S.

  • Will Wynn says:

    Nice Roy. Never give up. I believe if you want something badly enough you can always get it. There’s always the lottery. ;D

  • Roy Sellwood says:

    I would really like a Honda S800 or 600 sports car. They’ve appreciated so much in value that I doubt I ever will now.
