im 18 and have a 72' series 3, insurance is high as hell so its best to go on your mum or dads policy as a named driver and them as a main.

on my own policy it would be
1972 S/W series 3..."Angus"

New-ish tyres (Deestone Extra Traction) and recovery eyes so far

2.25 diesel                  200tdi
 Hard top                     Exmoor Trim hood
checker plate wings     checker plate wings
checker plate sills        parabolic springs
checker plate floor       overdrive
                                    roll cage
                                    corabreu bucket seats   
                                    fairey overdrive

according to some companies you have to be over 25 to have a classic car policy, but my mate is 17 and has a 92' mini on a classic car policy and it costs him 700 a year, think i will try that one too =)
