Further insights: 

“Classic cars are becoming an increasingly popular purchase among car enthusiasts and investors alike, with the price of rare models increasing faster than the price of gold! This means that investing in a classic car cannot only be a dream purchase for car fanatics, but also has the potential to be a lucrative investment for smart buyers. Although, it isn’t just the initial cost of the car they need to consider, as even the cheapest models could cost a lot more to run over time.

“When choosing which classic car to purchase it is important to note the cost of car insurance, as even if you don’t plan to drive your classic motor, by law it still requires insurance. If you are in the market for a classic car, we recommend comparing car insurance quotes to calculate how much you could be paying to insure it before making the commitment.”
