Classic Cars / Classical Music

I own a Classic Car and l am worried that soon l will not be able to enjoy it after 5 years spent on the restoration this pandemic is stopping me from enjoying the hard work I put into my car. It does not help either with the phasing out of Petrol and Diesel cars by 2030.
At least I can still enjoy Classical Music on my phone, radio.

      Hi Bryan, is that an Elf? My mate had one of those in the 70’s 😉

        A 1966 Riley Elf MK2 now fully restored and road worthy and looking forward car shows here l go. It has also been photographed for Mini World magazine but no date for publication as yet.

          A Mini with a proper boot haha.

          These must be really rare nowadays.

          In fact, even back in the day I didnt see many around.

          Our local driving instructor had one in the mid 70’s

          I felt sorry for him, that he couldnt afford a “proper” Mini. Just shows… I knew nothing. It was actually a posh Mini 🤣

          Any more photos Bryan?

          Including the restoration?

      Hello Bryan,

      I’m also interested in classic cars, I have a 1956 Austin A30 husband has a Sunbeam 90 mk 3. He has almost finished restoration of a 1968 Lambretta scooter. I will try to post some photos soon. Lovely car the Elf.

      Although new petrol and diesel cars will be phased out by 2030 ( I can’t see it happening), it will be far longer before petrol is unavailable for your classic car. I see many classics being converted to electric but there’s resistance to it in the classic car movement. What does everyone think?
