Never mind the investment potential & running costs of old cars, consider why no-one makes them that way any more. An old MGB - I drove my son's before he sold it - was hard work to drive and not terribly comfortable. My great-uncle's pre-war - 1920s - Rolls went very slowly. My father who was driving said this was because it had nearly no brakes.
The things are money-pits and don't actually work terribly well. I just can make an exception for the three-wheeled Morgan run for the last forty or fifty years by an acquaintance.
I've given up on the main topic of the thread, I'm afraid. Too much déja-vu already.
