Hi Lady’s and Gents, With the current global trends towards electric cars what are your views on the future for classic cars sharing the main roads of Great Britain minus...Scotland Northern Ireland and Wales.
Will we get petrol in the year 2029 ??? Just 10 years time.

You can now buy a Jaguar E type from Jaguar heritage with an electric power plant

Call me an old fool or denier. I don't buy the great flood will wash us away in 10 - 12 years however...
Seems like we are being herded into urban centers with less personal transportation options.
Kids don't seem as interested or excited about driving cars, can you say "personnel devices, social media"?
Cultures around the world are being erased by mass migration. The historical photos we post mean nothing to the newbes.
I for one don't enjoy driving anymore. The roads here are clogged with hulking SUVs, 4x4s, and semi's. See my avitar as an example. Even the new Mini isn't that small anymore. Is there a new vehicle that weighs less than a ton?
Where will all the lithium and electricity come from? We need a new grid to support the required charging stations unless personal travel is simply eliminated.
I can't remember, how long did it take to phase out leaded gas? Ten years? Over here it's hard to find non-ethanol contaminated gas. It's called premium and costs more.
I'm not real optimistic about the future of our cherished MMs. They will probably die with us old farts.
