1 - On the internet
There are plenty of places where you can find classics being advertised for sale online – and we’d recommend our sister site Classic Cars For Sale (classiccarsforsale.co.uk) as a great starting point. The advantage with online listings is that you can look through a detailed description and a set of photographs without even leaving the comfort of your own house – but do your homework first and avoid cars wearing suspiciously low prices that are too good to be true, because there are plenty of scammers out there, too.
2 - At A Car Show
This can be a great way of seeing the latest classics being offered. Not only do plenty of dealers set up stands at shows across the UK, but many shows also have a section dedicated to cars being sold privately. The prices for the latter in particular often throw up some good deals, but be aware that you might not necessarily be able to drive the car during the show itself – it’s worth asking the seller if they’re happy for you to view (and test drive it) at a later date. Check out the public car parks; often visitors use these as a shop window for their cars, too.
