At Great Escape we like trying to second guess what cars people will want that we don’t already have. Certain cars like MGBs, Jaguar E Types, Morris Minors and Jaguar Mk2 will always be popular. But for many customers in their 30s and 40s these are cars from an older era. What we’ve realised is that people love the cars they grew up with.
So here at Great Escape Classic Car Hire we’ve rolled up the sleeves on our collective white jacket, pulled up our white socks, smoothed down our rumbled Stay-Press trousers and donned our comedy baseball cap with cap-mounted beer and drinking straw to ponder the 1980s.
The decade that fashion apparently forgot is now actually extremely fashionable. Pop stars have raced to revisit the age of gold Bacofoil jumpsuits and frightwig hair. And we’re racing to cars like the Rover SD1, VW Golf GTI, Porsche 928, Jaguar XJS, Ford Capri and Ford Granada Ghia X. These cars epitimosed motoring 1980s-style and if you’re like us you’ll remember seeing or being in these cars when shorts were something you wore rather than something to help you unwind.
We’ve spent the last 12 months developing our fleet of 1980s cars and several iconic classic cars from this list are already on our fleet. If you fancy rewinding the clock and either getting behind the wheel of a car you’ve always loved or reliving your first car or your dad’s car, call us on 01527 893733 or visit the Great Escape Classic Car Hire website.
