This month we've already even given you a comprehensive guide to all the new cars to get excited about in 2019, and yesterday we gave you our predictions for the motoring world over the next twelve months - but now it's over to you.
There are plenty of ways you can indulge your love of cars this year, and it doesn't have to cost you the world. This, then, is your updated New Year's resolutions list, as compiled by Autocar writers.
Valet an old nail
Owning an old car implies a strong bond already exists between you and it. But you’ll be amazed how much this will be further improved if you have the car properly, professionally cleaned. For money. Suddenly, your car seems new again; it even appears to go better. At least until it rains… Steve Cropley
Buy an old Mini
It’s been 60 years since Mini became part of Britain’s street furniture. These days, they are pampered garaged collectibles. Not a branding exercise, just a perfectly formed tiny car, so it makes the ‘Bini’ look a bit daft. Classic car prices have calmed down a bit, including for Minis, but there is going to be a big old birthday bounce. Never mind, there are bargains. Stay away from overpriced Cooper recreations and get an honest 1973 850 at £8750, a 1985 City at £4250, or a 1979 Mini Clubman for £8995. James Ruppert
Take a drive in Europe
Never forget that the car’s not just for going where you need to go; it’s also about going where you want to go. Plan ahead and, for less than £50 for the ferry or train crossing, northern Europe can be your playground. Not much tops a weekend away. Jim Holder
