Are these old things really suitable for modern road-(ab)users?

There have been a couple of nasty accidents recently on the Borgward-IG forum where 60 YO cars have been heavily rear-ended by fast-moving modern stuff. And 60 YO stuff isn't very accident-safe by modern standards.

It's relatively rare admittedly, but it does give one second thoughts.

Very good point given that most “drivers” are just A to B merchants who are to busy with their phones to even consider thinking about driving.

Well, if you want the old British car feel, you could always copy John McKeen and retro-fit the S2000 with unreliable aftermarket tat - best of both worlds!
