Hi all as wanting to get another rod what cars do ppl have for run arounds as I'm getting quotes for 450 for a auto focus only worth 1200 and can't be paying that as both cars will come to nearly a grand for both.

Cheers Phil

Most Classic or American insurance is usually around £100 a year fully comp for mosteople I know.
I run an El Camino as a daily, in the past have run everything from '50s Yanks to a '90s Chevy Duallie.

If you your thick skinned enough and don't care when people laugh and point at you , and don't travel to far from base, get yourself a smart car like I did just to get to work when its raining instead of my pushbike, about 60 to the gallon, £30 year tax, £100 year fully comp for me and the missus, its a cross between a lawnmower and a skip but you can drive it like a go kart , it just do's what it says on the tin.

i was quoted 142 quid for my pontiac fiero gt fastback last year, so insurance is cheap for that. i run a 05 punto as a daily, got them both on a part time motor traders policy as i buy and sell a few cars a year. paid 610 quid for me and the missus and i can drive anything on it. maybe worth looking down that route. in fact i can sell you both for 2500 quid if you want, lol.

Sold this last year, it was only the 1256 but I made a bell housing to mate up a 5 speed type 9 so it was ideal for daily use and long runs. Cheapest quote I had was £88 but with the wheels, gearbox and jackup kit I paid about £120 fully comp.

Looks good mate. How much you sell it for. As only want to pay 1500 if only so can get insurance on a hot rod. My only other plan going to see the weekend as I'm starting to cycle to work I dont need a daily car but as u need for insurance on a classic n so on on my old insurance with sureterm think I could be a name driver on my aunt's car for 15 a month and then used my pop as my daily car then as had the spare money from not owning 2 cars.
