Classic cars are in 'serious jeopardy' and 'may not survive' warn enthusiasts


    Figures from the classic vehicle industry fear complex new rules around importing and exporting classic vehicles to the EU are damaging owners confidence. They warn there is a misunderstanding of the environmental impact of vintage motoring which could also be playing a role in undermining the sector.

    They warn more than 100,000 jobs could be in peril if the classic car industry struggles to maintain its place.

    They warn the classic car sector contributes £18.3billion to the economy every year with the classic car fleet valued at over £12billion.

    The Alliance says it is also on a mission to educate the public, politicians and regulators of environmental concerns.

    The group say they are respectful of the green agenda but argue classic and history cars are the epitome of sustainability.

    He said: “Classic and historic vehicles invariably bring a smile to the face of people who see them on our roads or TV screens.

    “There are more than a million passionate owners in the UK and around 10 million people who are interested in these vehicles which really are an important element of our national heritage.

    “The time has come for us in the industry, owners and enthusiasts to all to join together to correct a host of myths and misconceptions and to protect and celebrate the world we love.”
