Research from Admiral has revealed this to be the case, although the majority of owners of such cars remains middle-aged men.
Interestingly, the people who are most likely to have a classic car are people in creative jobs like tattooists, animators and lighting directors.
Justin Beddows, spokesman for Admiral, said: “People often have a preconception of a classic car owner and while a lot of them are male and aged over 40 it’s interesting to see that nearly a quarter are women.”
He went on to note that classic car owners are among the most careful on the roads as well (perhaps because they’ve invested so much time and money in their vehicles), with research from the company showing that just 11 per cent of them have had crashes in the last 12 months, compared with 16 per cent of all other motorists.
