Getting Started

Relative to the millions produced during the golden decade, very few survived. After around a decade of being pushed to the limits under the testing UK and European winters, most of these cars were taken out of circulation, hauled off to the breakers yard with just a relative handful remaining in a driveable condition- lovingly cared for by and gradually restored by devoted enthousiasts.

The goal of My Classic Cars Blog is to provide those new to classic car restoration with an informative guide to help them plan their project, understand the stages involved, realise their limitations so they can avoid any pitfalls along the way.

For the countless thousands that have completed a classic car restoration, for the many more that are currently working on one and especially for those considering restoring a classic in the future, will continue to provide history, tips, tricks, terminology and news on all aspects of the wonderful world of classic cars.
