Comment   Coming to a street lamp near you soon. By law, and by 2040, electric power will have replaced the good old-fashioned internal combustion engine completely and, as cars will also by then be 'driverless‘, it's fair to say motoring as you and I know it, will have passed into history. 'Adieu pour toujours' as my dear old grandmother would have said.

Retro-Fact  Established in October 1934, the Veteran Sports-Car Club soon became better known as the VSCC (Vintage Sports-Car Club) and initially catered for vehicles over five years old, on a rolling basis. However, after two years 'Captain' of the Club, Tim Carson, put forward the motion '.... driving membership of the Club should be limited to owners of cars manufactured prior to 31 December 1930‘. It was passed and has remained the cornerstone of the Club ever since.
