The other point to this is those who can’t fathom the idea of the loss of the roar of the engine or smell of gas and oil will likely be dead before these conversions take place. I am one of this group.
Look around, the newer generations don’t get dirty, and the only sound they want to hear comes from earbuds. And they are the decision makers of tomorrow.
A huge percentage of city dwellers are car-less, and most city dwellers that get rid of their cars don’t replace them.
The cost of insurance, parking, storage, maintenance is being supplanted by Uber and others. Parking facilities will become residential or green space.
Like it or not, the world is turning away. Anyone in the future who enjoys driving as we know it will be super enthusiasts. I know many older collectors that think it’s heresy to drive on interstates, or to have a automatic transmission. Most have never experienced the neck snapping acceleration of a modern electric car, and never will. So be it for them, but that kind of thinking is going to be gone with the wind, like it or not.
We are our generations version of the “faster horse” mentality, and today’s cars will go the way of buggy whips eventually. The exceptions hopefully will be these modernized versions that will allow vintage vehicles to coexist with whatever supplants it.
It sure beats the alternative.
