DMG show their support for local charity

Here at DMG we’ve been encouraging our employees to have a spring clear out and bring in any unwanted clothes, toys and homeware. We’re so proud of the efforts made by all of our staff and today we were able to donate all these boxes of essential items to Black Country Women’s Aid, an independent charity supporting survivors of domestic abuse in the West Midlands.

Which classic car is the best investment?

When it comes to deciding which classic car is the best investment we know which we’d choose. You need to do your research before you purchase your dream classic car, however, there’s plenty of evidence that classics can make great investments. With that in mind, our specialist sales advisors have picked the classic cars that they think is the best investment you can make.

MGB

Hands down the MGB  is the best classic car investment, these cars have been going up in value over the last 10 years. Take the MK1 MGB GT… not many of these are left on the road being made only from 65-67. 10 years ago you could pick them up for £2500 or a decent MOT’d car for less than £8000.. and early roadsters have sky rocketed to over £25,000… the factory V8 cars are following nicely as well around the 20k mark. But at the other end you can pick up good rubber bumper projects which are great investments. Limited edition cars like the Jubilee GT and the LE GT and Roadsters that start at a couple of grand will see good results in the next few years.

The MGB is still an affordable, usable classic investment.

TRIUMPH 2000/2500/2.5pi range

My choice for the best investment classic car would be the Triumph 2000/2500/2.5pi range.

Developed in the early 1960’s they were classically styled with Italian lines along with a newly developed 6 cylinder 2000cc engine for smoothness and performance. Fitted with twin carbs and modern brakes, independent suspension and spacious interior the new Triumph 2000 served the family man and business man. In 1968 the 2.5 fuel injected engine featured the first fuel injection system to a volume production car and gave sports car performance in a comfortable saloon.

1969 saw the development of the MK2 range along with the same classic style, revised interior, modified engines and choice of overdrive and automatic gearboxes. Today the cars have an excellent owners club, readily available parts and an enthusiastic following. A car still capable of being used every day.
