FBHVC 2019 National Cost of Ownership Survey

#1 Post by GTiJohn » Fri May 24, 2019 9:44 am

Very interesting survey results have been published
The results of the 2019 National Cost of Ownership Survey have been announced by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs. The summary results were revealed at a press conference within the Houses of Parliament on 14 May with the full research document now available to download on the FBHVC website at: https://www.fbhvc.co.uk/research .

Historically, the Federation has undertaken major research projects every 5 years, the most recent being the 2016 National Historic Vehicle Survey. Back then, the data revealed that the historic vehicle industry employed 34,900 people and generated £5.5 billion towards the UK economy. However, to gain more up-to-date insights into the attitudes and interest in transport heritage and the ever-evolving pressures on enthusiasts using yesterday’s vehicles on tomorrow’s roads, the Federation has produced its first ever ‘mid-term’ survey.
in the detail it shows that Rover cars make up c.1% of the historic vehicles on British roads :clapping
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

And on page 42 of the full report (https://www.fbhvc.co.uk/storage/downloa ... 0V0_7W.pdf) it predicts Rover, VW, BMW and Porsche will make up 4% each of future/predicted classic cars.

There's a figure to beat...
