Classic VW Insurance
As a global company, Volkswagen
has dominated the automotive market for decades. First established
in Germany in 1937, the company has evolved into one of the biggest
car manufacturers in the world. It owns several subsidiaries,
including Bentley, Bugatti, Porsche, Ducati and
VW has created a range of classic
cars, such as the Beetle, Golf and Scirocco. These vehicles are
popular among car enthusiasts, so you'll want to find the right
insurance policy. With a reputation for excellence, Volkswagen is a
brand that can be relied on.
Which Classic VW Is right for
VW has released a lot of memorable
cars through the years. Perhaps the most recognisable is the
Beetle, with its curved bumpers and stylish shape. Nicknamed The
Bug, it became popular from the moment it was produced. The
original model reached a top speed of 62 mph, which inspired
several variants like the Cabriolet.
In the 70s, the VW Golf was
introduced as the Beetle's replacement. With its 3-door hatchback
style, the Golf stood out immediately. It's one of only three cars
to be voted European Car of the year twice. Later models included a
5-door hatchback and station wagon.
The VW Scirocco can be considered
a sportier car than what came before it. Named after the
Mediterranean wind Sirocco, it was made to go fast. It was launched
six months before the Golf and Type 1 models were fitted with a
range of four-cylinder engines with displacements from 1.1 to 1.6
Buying and owning a Classic
With so many models, you'll be spoiled for
choice on the kind of classic VWs you can buy. Online car
dealerships, magazines, blogs and auctions are ideal places to
carry out research.
Whether you're interested in buying a Beetle
or Golf, you'll want to inspect it first. Rust can crop up in
several areas, so you'll want to check thoroughly. In a Beetle you
should inspect the heater channels, side rear windows, floor pans
and rear cross members.
