Today my two roadworthy TR7's and the Defender were valued for the car's insurance. So 't Kreng and the DHC were together again to grace the driveway.
As for the valuation. 't Kreng's value will remain the same despite ever more signs of her hard use. This is because she still looks pretty good for a car that was restored between 1994 and 1997. And she has seen a lot of action since she returned on the road in '97.
The DHC's value has increased a little bit. This is mainly caused by the current market situation, but also by the fact that the appraiser was impressed by how well she looked after 8 years of regular and sometimes hard use since she was restored! The mileage readings were there to prove the fact!
The Defender's price will be a surprise once determined. Due to the current rather unfriendly (local) rules against diesel powered cars, prices are starting to become unstable. So that value needs some further consultation before it's finalised.
