Seat belts, brakes and a horn. Still have everything you need plus they're just that bit slower. And they encourage maintenance.

Don't forget to get him to take the "pass plus" as that will get him a good discount to start with

After reading everyones comments, I think I'll tell him he can't have one. Seems like the insurance companies might want quite a substantial amount. And yes it was the classic mini he wanted.

Chalkie, it's the reason that old Minors and Beetles are being run by students, they are much cheaper to insure on a classic policy.

You may have just made my son very happy by telling me that information. It looks like he may win.

You're absolutely correct KB, he doesn't have to own it though or be the registered keeper until he can afford it.

100% agree...am currently trying to unravel a fatal case where everything was not as it was made out to be. The insurer has to deal with the claim from the thirdparty by law, but they (insurer) are now going after the driver personally for around 130k ( at this stage) ....

makes doing it right look cheap .......
