    • Only once they have ‘run their natural course’, once petrol is so hard to come by and you’ve restored the engine a couple of times over, I’d do it in a heartbeat, to keep it on the road.

      But now? No.

    • I love classics, and putting an electric engine in an immaculate E-type is sacrilege in my opinion.

      However, if the original engine is junk and the car was in need of major structural work anyway, I'm much less opposed to it. I do like a good restomod, and the performance an electric drivetrain can offer does sound interesting.

      Then there's taking a "common classic" like a Morris Minor, VW Beetle or 2CV and fitting it with a Tesla P100D drivetrain in it just to upset everyone at the local drag-strip.
