Classic Cars - Tips & Advice from Foster & Heanes

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and this is never truer than when it comes to collectable cars.

Everyone has a different opinion as to what makes a car collectable. From the Jaguar E-Type to a Classic Mini, what makes a car special is what it means to its owner.

These are just a selection of classic cars that have seen their popularity increase in 2020.

There’s no reason why you can’t still drive your soft top in winter. It’s just a case of giving it more attention during the colder months to ensure it stays in good condition.

As of 20th May 2018, most vehicles manufactured or first registered over 40 years ago will be exempt from MOT testing unless they have been substantially changed.

Minor modifications will not be affected by the new MOT rules for classic cars and this has been confirmed by the Department of Transport.

More details can be found here on what is termed as ‘substantial change’
