1960's stuff now tailing off, this is proved by race entries................

1970's and 80's on the climb...........

Simple answer, people born in the 60's ( like me) remember the 1275 GT Championship and Clubmans running in the RAC rally.

Sign of the times I'm afraid 😳

Inclined to agree. Look at 70’s and 80’s stuff. All on the rise. Metros, Ford XR/RS and Japanese stuff. You’re all getting old. (Obvs I’m not 🤣)
