  1. I have encountered a fair bit of resistance trying to insure a Herald, but I have stumbled accross an Adrian Flux article from 2016, staring a Morris 1100 and possibly an Austin A40 Farina can be insured at 17 for only ~150 more than a Citroen c1. Feel like I may have to compromise for another BL classic.
  2. My theory was learning to drive well from the start, in that I wouldnt be able to become complacent. P.S. I don’t know about you but I’ve seen some lunatic Grannys about where I live ?
  3. From my ever increasing experience of insurance companies, it is based off the risk factor - so a Vauxhall Astra/Corsa is supposedly a car for by racers who spend most of the time yanking the handbrake. An Audi is statistically out of their range so isn't as bad a deal. ...although by that logic they should be paying me to insure the Herald!
  4. Cheers for helping me out, it's looking bleak for at least my first year on the road - just seems hard to spend my own money on an unloved Ford Ka or the like
  5. Hi there, I'm a newly passed driver (<3 months ago), and am looking at purchasing a first car. I have been saving up for a while, so am looking to spend about £2500 to £3000 on the car (a lovely little Herald 1200) and a bit £extra for insurance. Searching through forums I have found many stories from 2008 to 2013 of dirt cheap classic policies for new drivers, but recently this appears to have gone dry. I am very interested in an old car for the experience, not money saving - but as a student money is a big factor (luckily my dad can help with repairs). I have got a few quotes for £2000+ from Peter James and Adrian Flux, with some companies like Admiral not offering me a quote at all. Just wondered if there was anything I was missing other than being part of a car club / possibly adding my Dad with his 20+ years NCB and history of classic cars. I really appreciate any help you can give
