Vintage race cars should be shown and driven


Our recent weekly poll asked this question: “Why buy a valuable vintage race car?”

Of those responding, 43.48 percent selected “To show and drive” as their answer. Only 17.39 percent selected “To go vintage racing” as the reason for such a purchase.

This week, our poll points to the vintage but electric-powered Jaguar E-type driven over the weekend to their wedding reception by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and whether such “electro-mods” will become as accepted by the collector car community as have resto-mods.  

To respond to the poll, see the right-hand column of the ClassicCars.com Journal home page.
