The Cars That Won't Die
Technological advancements mean that the cars of today should be far better than their ancestors. However, there is a charm about some of the vehicles of yesteryear which means that they are still popular with car enthusiasts today.
3.4% of the searches carried out on MoneySupermarket are for classic vehicles which were manufactured before 1996. We have therefore analysed our data to find out which are the most popular veteran vehicles that are still on the road today and split them into three different sections.
Volkswagen cars feature very prominently on the list with the VW Beetle being the most popular pre-1980s vehicle still in existence and the VW Golf the most popular survivor of the 1980s. This speaks volumes for the reliability of enduring appeal of vehicles produced by the German manufacturer.
