No Hobby for Young Men?

The recent article, No Hobby for Young Men (Hagerty’s Magazine, Winter 2010) about an aging demographic threatening the future of the historic vehicle hobby, inspired one reader to offer another view:

It seems like every month there are countless articles about the aging demographic of the car hobby. Personally, I continue to grow more and more upset with this. But it's not because I agree with it. It's because I don't think that statement could be any further from the truth. It's not that kids aren't interested in cars it's that they're not involved in cars. There's a huge difference between those words.
