The Government’s controversial ULEZ policy has really put the spotlight on classic cars.
The Ultra Low Emission Zone was spread to all of Greater London on August 29 – with non-compliant cars charged £12.50 a day to use the city’s roads.
The idea is to improve air quality.
Regardless of their emissions, cars aged 22-40 years old are considered non-compliant. ‘Historic’ cars, over 40 years old, are exempt.
While some people have looked to get rid of their modern classics, others have decided to buy a historic car to get around the charges.
If you fancy getting your hands on a car you might have coveted since childhood, here’s some that are available in Lancashire now on leading classic car site carandclassic.com.
