Top 10 UK By The Decade: 1965 - 2012

The Very Successful BMC 1100/1300

Looking back on times not that distant, you see that things are always changing, that nothing stays the same. Because the change is gradual it is not always noticed, but the list below makes you realise how different the car market was back in the 20th Century. Some points to note from the chart below:

The models are colour coded by origin.
In '65, two thirds of cars sold were in the top 10, in 2012 30%.
Vauxhall were in a trough in '75, with just one model represented.
French models came and went... German brands are making their move.
