I already am a youngster.  Well, a just turned 30 youngster, but you bring 
up an interesting point.  I got into T-series MG's because my dad had one.  
It seems that folks from my generation aren't interested in classic cars at 
all.  For instance, we have a guy in my local MG that has a pristine MGA.  
He wants to get rid of it and retire to Florida but none of his three kids 
want anything to do with it, one daughter saying that it's too unsafe!  I 
belong to several clubs and for most of them I'm easily one of the yougest 
there if not the youngest, (the Alfa and Land Cruiser clubs being an 
exception).  Anyone want to speculate what gives?
