Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

The short­age of new clas­sic ex­perts learn­ing the resto skills we need to keep cars go­ing is one of the big­gest prob­lems fac­ing our hobby. At best it’ll drive the price of restora­tions up, and at worst risks cars be­ing kept off the road – or even scrapped – as a re­sult. It’s very en­cour­ag­ing that so many of the busi­nesses that we’ve spo­ken to are sup­port­ive of a new scheme, so I’m op­ti­mistic that they can se­cure the Gov­ern­ment fund­ing and that an em­ployer-led ap­pren­tice­ship will soon be up and run­ning. It’s some­thing that the UK’s clas­sic car move­ment badly needs.
