There are two distinct camps when it comes to classics, those that like their classic and take every opportunity to work on them, maybe even enjoying working on them rather than driving, and the other camp who love classic cars but cannot wild a spanner.
I would say I think you've missed a group here. I am 70, have always loved cars and now have 2 classics but because of my tired body I am not able to bend or get off the floor after lying down. I therefore have to pay someone to look after them. I am not alone in this "time of life" but still love cars, can use a spanner and know a thing or two about cars.

Ha yes indeed, I must admit I'm only 55 but once down it does take a few seconds for the gears to engage before I can get up again. :D

I enjoy Bangers and Cash as its quite easy viewing and pretty entertaining. Has there ever been a Morris featured though? There are quite often one or two in the background of the showroom but they never seem to be one of the featured cars. Too common or not different enough?

Maybe not a saloon but I think they featured a pickup a while back.

In the last series, cant remember episode they featured a very nice trafalgar blue convertible. Love the programme, easy watching and good to escape from "normal" life
