That reminds me of a joke I heard many years ago.

What is the difference between a scientist and a classic car owner (or mechanic)?

A scientist washes his hands after going to the toilet so that he doesn't contaminate his equipment and a classic car owner washes his hands before....

People getting sudden migraine attacks when forced to drive moderns. Or people taking corners opposite-locking walking round office corners and doing silent tyre squeal noises while doing that...

Something that has always made me chuckle when justifying spending on a classic - possibly worthy of a bumper sticker:

"I've always wanted one of these..."

I found a comment that could well apply to the British Motor Industry from the 1970's, it's:

If a job's worth doing...........It's worth doing cheaply.
