  • “Protecting the Future of Our Past” – HCVA CEO Garry Wilson

    Depending on who you talk to, you might believe that classic cars are not long for this world. There are a multitude of pressures on drivers of older cars – from rapidly rising petrol prices, schemes such as London’s ULEZ which charges drivers of older cars £12.50 per day to use their vehicles, and declining parts supplies.
