  4. Has always wanted a beetle from a young age & seeing as both she & Bernard are 40 this year I thought why not. Plus I get to drive him! ;)

  11. I am insured with cherished for the bay & added this car onto our existing policy for a sum total of £111- both 1641cc & both have very good agrred values. You don't always accrue no claims bonus on classic vehicle policies so may be a cheaper alternative for your daughter.

    Somebody is going to come on and shoot me now :)

  15. I think if the car is a classic (over a certain age) you get classic insurance. It is generally cheaper as they consider the car is not to be used daily. Tlb members get 15% discount & 10% off admin fee. I am paying £250 pa for the two vehicles. :thumbsup:
  16. *if you can prove
    ** if you have proof

    There endeth the lesson!
  17. Who with?
