This would certainly help people struggling to keep many more modern classics on the road, particularly less mainstream cars for which it’s difficult to get spares. It’s all about preserving history, so we’re not just talking about obvious 1980s classics such as the Golf GTi, Audi Quattro and Saab 900 turbo. You could say that for some it’s time to abandon snobbery and realise that some of the more mundane cars attain classic status as time moves on there isn’t a cut-off date, and the ‘my uncle had one of those’ concept applies to more and more cars. They are the vehicles that people remember from their
childhood, and like to see today. There will always be someone out there who wants to preserve something that you might not
readily think of as a classic and best of luck to them. The 25 year rolling date can be a big help
to them and I’m all for it.
