For this week’s issue of Classic Car Buyer we’ve decided to do something a little different. Over the past few months pretty much every media outlet out there has had something good to say about our motor industry and how in the face of declining car sales across mainland Europe, Britain is bucking the trend. Which got us to thinking; which classic car today best represents the ‘Best of British’?
The whole team has put forward the car that they feel ticks the most boxes and rather than trying to
decide amongst ourselves ultimately which is best, we’re encouraging you, the reader, to let us know
which writer you agree with or which car we missed and that therefore should be praised. This was a hugely interesting feature to edit and it was surprisingly just how similarly some of our motoring journalists seem to think. To try and avoid authors ‘doubling up’ on the cars they’d be writing about I requested that they supply an alternative car they be happy to write about, in the event that someone else had already put forward their preferred choice as they car they’d like to write about.
In the end this didn’t quite work out as four of the eight writers involved chose to write about the
Range Rover – understandably so; the original forged an entirely new market in Europe when it was
released in 1970 and today is one of the most sought-after vehicles available. Another popular machine was the XJ6, which in many ways is similar to the Range Rover in that its successor – the modern XJ – is equally revered. Of course, this pairing is also currently in the same Jaguar Land Rover stable. Jack Grover and Paul Guinness also have remarkably similar tastes as both put forward the ADO16 as their choice – a car that combined the best bits of both the Morris Minor and the Mini. It’s also interesting to note the cars we didn’t choose – there’s not a single sports car in our selection (given that we’re supposed to be a nation of sports car fanatics I found that a bit odd).
