A Jensen Interceptor and a Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth featuring in the space of two episodes; Mike certainly spoiled us during season seven.
In 2010 it was possible to buy an Interceptor for the measly sum of £5,000. Nowadays, people's desire for the Jensen equals the car's immense thirst for petrol, therefore expect to pay nearly six times the amount Mike paid for a decent example.
The 1968 Volvo 1800S is certainly a stunning car in its own right, and prices have risen accordingly during the classic car "boom". Think you can get one for £5,000 these days? Think again. Although, at least the £18,500 for a similar example will be capable of hitting three million miles as one car accomplished in the early 2010s.
The Triumph Stag seems a steady performer if you are a fan of peak British Leyland. Just do not expect a running one for the £3,400 Mike paid.
