In 2019, the ‘D’ word strikes fear into Government legislators the world over. Like never before the media, environmentalists and the like are up in arms over diesel cars. Why? After Governments advised us to buy diesel in the 1990s, which we all did. Now, its alleged that diesel is actually terrible for local emissions and emits lots of harmful toxins that are not very nice at all.

This nicely leads us to more words to strike fear, this time though it’s to the car enthusiast with ‘scrappage scheme.’ These words have seen current and future classics seeing out their final days being picked for parts sitting on a disused airfield. As the UK Government one again gears up to offer diesel drivers cash to get out of their old oil burners, a large number if future diesel classics could about to be lost forever. As you should remember that once they’ve gone into scrappage scheme, that’s it, they are gone forever.

These are our picks for the diesel cars that we think will become future classics, so if you own one of them – please take care of it…
