Hear, hear, Andrew!
I'm 22, and have a basket case Spitfire I love to work on, even though
I'm starting to doubt it'll ever be truly finished. I've got the
engine running, but it still needs an interior and _heavy_ body work.
I'd love a 3 or 4A, or a TVR, or an E-type coupe, or (really, really)
a Lotus Elite. I've even infected my younger brother! He's looking
for (gak!) an MGA in decent shape to rebuild/play with. At the risk
of being publicly pilloried on the list, we went to look at one and
<sob> I _liked_ it! Is there something wrong with me? I hear you can
get help for these kinds of things...
Anyhow, there's plenty of younger Brit car enthusiasts preparing to
become old Brit car enthusiasts like the rest of you...

I just wanted to let you know that there is in fact a younger
generation of enthusiasts out there. I myself am 25 and have owned a
TR-7, and have fixed up a $200 '78 spitfire. My new project is a
1980 Spit that has had some fire damage. The younger generation
really is out there........and they like british cars
'78 Spit (racing next year??)
'80 Spit (needs a lot of help)
