Would you leave on a trip to the UK in one of them tomorrow?
Yes.
I would prefer to take the 51 year old as it is quieter, does better mpg and the seats are more comfy.
They are regularly checked over, I would still of course check tyres, levels of fluids and lights - as I would hope you would too.
With my MGB I wouldn't even do that because it was maintained as 100% ready for anything 365 days per year.
Immediately after we left France for Spain, and as soon as we'd got our residence and health cards sorted, we turned round and drove it back to France for a sortie into the Jura with a group I'd been knocking about with for a few years. Door to door we did a shade under 4000 miles in 9 days without so much as lifting the bonnet.

Hi, are you still driving classics or have you given them up?
How do people live without at least one dog in the house?
