I write in appreciation of Nigel Boothman’s article Young at Heart (ATG No 2330). It is full of wisdom like “with restored cars, unless you witness the work, who knows what’s under the paint”.

Thank goodness that my skill set is restricted to jewellery and watches. I would struggle to value ‘younger classic’ cars which I thought were awful when they were new, let alone at current auction values.

On a separate note, can you still open all the locks on a Sierra Cosworth with half a tennis ball?
