    I thinking of maybe getting a classic, I want something big engined maybe a 4x4 or something needing work were I could fix it up myself, something along those lines similar to what brewer does on wheeler dealer only it would be for my own use

    Question I have is how do you identify a classic? As in is there a proper list so you know you it will qualify for classic insurance etc

    Cheers

    TBH after seeing what car Brewer is going for I then forward it on to when Ed starts his mechanical magic!

    Would really like a show were it was 100% Ed and not have to listen to Brewers sh!ttalk!!!

    Sort of depends on what you want a classic for imo
    To me a classic is some thing that has a classic look, not taking into account the age at all.

    In ireland tho i suppose going by insurance companies a classic can be anything older than 15 years old for some companies, yes 15. Other than insurance i dont think there is any other reason/purpose a person would get a 'classic' apart from the main reason - looks/feel etc??? my 2 cents

    You have to like it yourself, or you will quickly lose interest and end up selling it. To be honest, if you have to ask a forum what you like, you should wait till you see something that fires your imagination. You wouldn't ask us here to pick a girlfriend for you. would you? and expect to be together for years!

    Personally, for a big engine classic, I would go for a Ford Bronco from the late 70's / early 80's, or a GMC truck (remember The Fall Guy?)
