Is This The Future Of Old Cars? Its So Wrong, Yet So Right…

We love the rumble of the 50s, 60s and 70s V8s – but we have to ask, is this the future of old cars? If it’s becoming too difficult to keep cars within emissions limits (hello VW) and/or oil ceases to be the river of gold that it’s been for the oil producing countries, then maybe converting old cars to electric is the only way forward. New cars cheat with the V8 sound now anyway (the roar of the engine is often amplified with assistance from the car stereo system); so what’s to stop this happening with our pre-80s cars???
