Classic cars may be getting a bit thin on the ground in the UK and consequently command huge price tags
reserved only for the enthusiasts with deep pockets.
First you need to find the car of your dreams, then starts the long and expensive process of restoration to its former glory.
Alternatively you can try to find a classic car that has already been restored, but they are getting more difficult to find –
although they are still out there -and if you are in the market for an old beauty then you need to be prepared for the price tag.
Classic cars are still available in France,
especially French cars such as the CitroÃ«n Traction Avant, Renaults, Panhards
and old Peugeots.
Maybe I’m a purist, but for me they can’t compete with the Old British cars
such as Jaguars, Triumphs, Austins, Rileys, Wolseleys and Lotus,
the list could go on and on.
Surprisingly, these old British cars can still be found in France.
Just the other day I came across a 1961 flat four E Type Jaguar convertible
in concours condition in a small village in the Midi Pyrenees region,
sitting alongside an equally well – restored Triumph TR3.
Unfortunately, we had a rain shower just before I took the photos, which has slightly dulled the magnificent paintwork of the Jag – which is in showroom condition, although the rain has dulled it.
Here are a few snaps of the E Type – if anyone is interested in buying it,
don’t hesitate to contact me directly through the contact form on the blog.
