Jaguar XJ Series 3
OK, this one is not for the faint-hearted! They can be picked up at bargain basement prices but be warned, restoration and maintenance costs are high. Opt for the V12 engined XJ12 for a great class to money ratio.
Price Guide £1,000 – £3,000
Ford’s Evergreen Coupe was “the car you always promised yourself” but not long after its 18-year production run came to an end, the car gained an unfair reputation as a council house Corvette or a poor man’s Aston Martin. The car has now shaken its dubious reputation and values are increasing rapidly. The Mk1 RS3100 or Mk3 280 will set you back big bucks now but opt for a 2.8i or a 4 pot and prices are still in the attainable bracket (for now, at least)
Price Guide £2,000 – £5,000
