The danger of picking up a classic example of your favourite car is that someone else will have owned it before you, and it’s unlikely to be just right, reports AutoTrader's Tom Webster.
Jaguar Classic has helped Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain get around this by creating his ideal car: a 1984 XJ6 that has been dubbed the ‘Greatest Hits’ model.
