    Forever Cars

    Hi everyone,


    If you've owned your car long enough, it becomes more than just a car, but rather an extension of the family, a faithful steed or an old friend. Here we look at motorists who have owned the same car for 30 / 40 / 50 years.


    Do you have you own Forever Car?

    I have owned my car since 1987 and put it through 29 MOT's. The car has been insured Adrian Flux ever since.

    Re: Forever Cars

    I had one and I sold it last year . But it was to fund the Statos build so every cloud........

    Lotus 340R. No 155 or 340 made. Voted second place in Evo's Top 10 Greatest driver's cars - just behind the Pagani Zonda.

    If being the greatest drivers’ car meant having the world’s best steering then the Lotus 340R (or any mk1 Elise/Exige) would be standing on the top step. ‘The 340R is like an Elise turned up to 11,’ says unlikely Spinal Tap fan Metcalfe. ‘The chassis composure when really pushed is beyond brilliant; it’s close to unbelievable’. John Simister has the 340R at the top of his list ‘for its speed, purity, transparency and compactness. It provides a huge visceral buzz yet doesn’t assault you with the wrong sort of “noise”.’ ‘Sublime,’ says Barker.

    I'm beginning to regret selling it if I'm honest! Prices seem to be marching upwards very quickly. I joked with the owners' club that prices would run away as soon as I sold mine and it looks like the joke might be on me!

    The day it sold....



    A shot from above showing the amazing lines....
