Why buy an old car when you can get a new one? Well, if you haven't driven a Stag you will never know! Other than the E type Jag this is the princess of all cars. It is a 4 seater (or maybe 5 at a push) sports car with the wonderful benefit of having a good removable hard top for use in winter or a bad English summer. Early engines had a habit of having problems with their head gaskets but with modern technology this has been resolved. If you are interested in owning one don't be put off by the state of a prospective purchase or the work needed to put it right; it is better to buy a really junky one as you will know what has to be done to make it roadworthy. Also, you don't have to do the work yourself, just find a recommended restorer and keep an eye on it over the restoration period. I bought my rustheap from the person who restored the car for me, then I paid him in stages as the work was done. All in a basic good renovation (including purchase of the car) costs around £8,500; however, if like me you go for leather interior, a coloured hood, walnut dash and matching wooden steering wheel, modern hi-fi system etc. the price is around £11,000. BUT once done it is a collectors piece and worth more that this, with the value increasing all the time!

Great cars, but I nearly died when a friend of mine (who [HUSH!] didn't actually have a driving licence) offered me a lift home in one. I declined the offer, but he was bigger than me - and too drunk to argue with. I had no option but to accept. The car turned out to be more robust than both the street lamp and the brick wall it demolished. It was his wife's car. She never forgave him. Can't begin to think why. NOT. Andrew
