Ten cars you should save from the scrapper.Posted: May 26, 2009
The governments scrappage scheme is well under way, with all the dealers shouting about the fact you can bin you old car and get an automatic £2,000 saving on a new one.
I spoke about it at the time and said that “I think that this scheme is not only bad for the car business, but it is also bad for the consumer and the wider ‘old car enthusiasts’ like myself.”
A few people I know seemed to think that this was nonsense and that people would not be trading in their DB5’s or Bentleys for £2,000 off but those were not the cars I was referring to, I was referring to the classics of the future, the 80s cars that broke everyone’s hearts and pockets but you would give your right arms to own again now.
Following on from that statement I did a quick search to find the top ten cars that I think are worth holding onto and saved from the scrapper.
1. MK1 Golf
2. Mini Cooper
3. GT Metro / Metro GTa
4. VX Nova (GTE and GSI)
5. Fiesta XR2
6. BMW 5 series
7. Mazda MX5
8. PUG 205 GTI
9. Jeep Wrangler
10. Porsche 944
11. Williams Cilo
12. Toyota Starlet GT Turbo
OK, so there is 12 cars here, when I started writing this post a number of weeks ago I had 20 and tried my best to cut them down, but ten was to tough The point here is that there a lot of good cars under £2000. Classics and future classics, so go out and start buying !!! ………. before its two late
