About Cars for Sale
Today's motorist can choose from a huge variety of cars ranging from the small and economical to the large and ostentatious. There are four wheel drive off roaders, lightweight sports cars, family estates and cars that mix up bits of each of these styles.
The type of car that a driver chooses is obviously dictated to an extent by her circumstances. If you have a large family then an estate or a people carrier will be more appropriate than a two seater sports car. People with long commutes will probably want a car with a larger engine to make motorway driving more relaxing.
Increasingly, car design is being impacted by the imposition of green taxes. Over the last decade manufacturers have been forced to make their cars much more fuel efficient than ever before with lean burning diesels and hybrids now part of most model ranges.
In spite of the advances, there are plenty of people willing to sacrifice some efficiency and maybe a little comfort for the style and fun of a classic. There's nothing quite like driving quickly along a country B-road in a classic sports car with no power steering or brake servos to insulate you from the surface of the road.
For people who like the idea of driving a classic car, but who would rather do without the inevitable breakdowns, the inadequate heaters and antiquated audio equipment, there are plenty of current cars that are designed to ape the style of their forebears. These range from small saloons, like the new Mini, to high powered sports cars, like the Ford Mustang.
