Doug Nye: Period panel‑beaters could show modern restorers a thing or two

In the Historic, Vintage and Veteran car worlds, there are essentially two kinds of owner. They divide roughly into user collector, or contemplative collector. One sees the vehicle as a bit of fun to drive, or as a competitive piece of sports equipment in which to compete. The other likes to have the thing standing in his garage. He will show it off to friends or admirers, and be content with what the Americans call ‘curating’ the machine for as long as he owns it – use is secondary.
