Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

Let’s not lose sight of the big­ger pic­ture. The skills needed to keep our favourite cars on the road are steadily dis­ap­pear­ing as a gen­er­a­tion of re­stor­ers call it a day, and we are not bring­ing in a new gen­er­a­tion of freshly trained young­sters in at any­thing like the rate re­quired to re­place them. This lat­est pro­posed move by the Gov­ern­ment only hin­ders ex­ist­ing ef­forts to bring new ex­perts into Bri­tain’s clas­sic restora­tion busi­nesses, when re­ally we ought to be mak­ing it much eas­ier to set up new car restora­tion ap­pren­tice schemes.
