When you love cars so much, driving everyday in a 1.2-litre front-wheel driven hatchback becomes such a task. There is a limit to being content and happy with just what you have and you don't have to go on a guilt trip for wanting more, and then some. That's the reason we bring you some collectible, practical classics that you can use to commute occasionally. But more than anything else these cars will change your life. When you own these cars, you own a piece of history!
KARMANN GHIA / VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE
People always say how they love the Beetle. So what are you waiting for? The Volkswagen Beetle is an easy car to own - not much goes on the maintenance or purchasing of the parts. You also have Beetle support groups in most places. Driving it is a sensation that many cars fail to deliver. Of course prices have gone up, but you could get a decent runner for the price that you would pay for a new hatchback.
Still, for a few people a Beetle may be too common a car, the company manufactured more than 21 million units. You have the option to pick a Volkswagen Microbus, which is nothing but a van developed with Beetle underpinnings. It is difficult to find the first-generation T1s, so the T2 should suffice.
FORD/ WILLYS JEEP/ LAND ROVER DEFENDER
You can choose from one of these if you are more of an SUV person. Better known as Jeeps, the Fordor Willys GPWs, have a history that goes as far back as the Second World War. Much like the Beetle, it is easy to score and maintain Jeeps. You also have a number of online communities that can help your source the parts. These Jeeps are so full of attitude and the best part is that you can easily transform them into convertibles.
There are people who would not be seen dead in Grandpa's car. Drive a properly maintained Millicento and you would be more than willing to make an exception. The roar of the engine and the gravelly sound it makes while idling would make you fall in love with it. The Fiat Millicento is an easy car to drive in day-to-day traffic, and they are as practical as your Santro. And if you get the colour scheme right, the car will immediately become something of a show stopper on the road. It is somewhat difficult to find one, but keep a lookout for one and who knows, you might get lucky.
