LOOKING FOR A motor with a bit of style and history? Then how about a classic car? Classic cars are real drivers’ cars and a sign of a true motoring enthusiast.

Not only that, but you’ll save on tax and NCT costs, as classic motors are only €55 a year to tax and they don’t have to go through the NCT.

In fact, buy wisely and a classic car could be a smart investment and be worth a lot more than you paid for it in a few years’ time.

We’ve rounded up some classic cars that are available to buy on DoneDeal right now.
