Ten bargain cars tipped to could become future classics | This is Money

What you reckon to this list guys, I tend to disagree with most of it but after attending #ohsoretro this weekend and seeing late 80s Datsun Cherry's being loved as a classic I guess anything is possible.

306 GTI definitely but Beetle V5?

V5 is a terrible engine

Current rides:

2003 BMW 330d Manual Saloon Msport
1985 GTI cabriolet black edition (42k miles)
1999 Triumph Daytona 955i Post apocalyptic, rat, brat, scrambler, steam punk, cafe racer

The New Beetle will probably become a classic but if you were to choose an unusual/special one, it would need to be the limited run (250 cars produced) RSi, which has the 3.2litre VR6 and 4wd.

I don't agree with any of them tbh.

Some good cars there, but no, just no.

so basically anything 'sporty' is going to be a classic

Forget them all and get a Y-reg BMW Mini whilst they're @500-1000

1983 Mars Red 1.8 Golf GTI
1987 Alpine White 1.8 Clipper Cabriolet

The trouble with doing nothing is that you never know when you are finished.

The 306 I'd agree with purely on the basis of what's happened with 205s.

No mention of Mk1 Audi TT oddly

There is a big difference between a classic and a classic people actually want to buy / own / tune / show

2003 BMW 330d Manual Saloon Msport
1985 GTI cabriolet black edition (42k miles)

OK, the Alfa 159 I can see as it is very handsome.
And the Fiat coupe I also get.
Possibly the Puma; I remember the advertising campaign and thought it was very cool.  It might be 5417 to drive of course, I have no idea.

The rest hold no appeal for me whatsoever.  Never held the Beetle in high regard, either old or new.

I find it very difficult to tell which of the current crop of "new" cars would qualify as classics as my own proclivities tend towards vehicles with corners (i.e. 70s and 80s VAG cars and Fords of similar vintage).

None there for which I'd swap Golfus
