Caught in the Classifieds

Welcome to Caught in the Classifieds, where we take time each week to seek out a peach of a car from the thousands offered for sale each week. Sometimes, we’ll choose a motor that, because of price, rarity or condition is just too good to miss. Other times, it will be a vehicle that’ll maybe challenge your thoughts on what could be your next purchase. Then again, it could just be a bonkers purchase you’d secretly love to make. From a military tank to a motorised wheelchair, they’ve all appeared on Autoweb.co.uk seeking a buyer. Read on to discover more about our latest star car…
