Classic & Sports Car – PROMOTED: The one that almost got away

It happens to us all: you own a car and fall in love.

There are the memories of family trips, the days blasting through country lanes, the hours standing by the side of the road waiting for recovery. The dents and dings – each one has a story.

Finally, real life intervenes and you have to sell it, an act you always regret.

Very occasionally, a car will find its way back to its owner. In this video, a car dealer stumbles across the MGA that his father used to own and love. He decides to buy it back, but what happens next is entirely unexpected.

We hope you enjoy Hagerty’s Christmas video, and we wish you and your cars a safe and happy festive season.

Oh, and keep the tissues handy - it’s a crier!
