Here at Heritage Classic Car Insurance we celebrate difference, both in terms of the cars we love and our broad range of customers.
As they say, variety is the spice of life, so we’ve been looking at the different types of classic car and how they mirror different personalities.
All of the classic cars we insure have different traits that can be loosely matched with types of people. We’ve detailed a few below, so from big and brash to subtle and stylish, which category do you fall in to?
The Stylish one
Are you always after just the right look, no matter the price tag or the practicality? We all know somebody like this, who is always flawless and on-trend, whether it is their car or their clothes. Well, if this is you, the 1957 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing may be the perfect fit, with the vertically raising doors oozing style and making it one of the coolest cars ever to hit the roads.
The Thrill seeker
If you’re always after the next buzz, always on the go and in the search of excitement, maybe the 1966 Lamborghini Miura is for you. It also has bags of style, but as the fastest production road car made at the time of its release it’s also pure fun and enjoyment. A real thrill!
The Fun one
Are you the life and soul of the party and the person people turn to when they need a lift (pardon the pun)? Well, the 1969 Ferrari Dino 246 GT could be the classic car to match you – with its soft lines and angles, this mid-engined V6 bucked the trend of rigid cars and is meant to be driven quickly and playfully.
The Competitive one
If you’re the person who is always striving to be the quickest, the strongest or just the winner, then there’s certainly a classic car that fits the bill for you. The 1969 Boss 429 Mustang is extremely powerful, with Ford having to adapt the shape of the body of the car just to accommodate the outrageously large engine that you can hear from miles away.
The Cultured one
Are you the wise, well-travelled one of the group who wants to sample all of the intricacies and quirks that life has to offer? Well, the 1966 Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto is ideal for you. This car is suited to winding through European backroads at sunset and is a superb blend of style, practicality, power and just about everything you could ask for from a classic car.
These matches are of course a bit of fun, so do forgive us if your opinions on style and culture differ. Perhaps you have some ideas of your own, if so let us know.
