Where are the classic cars of tomorrow going to come from?
I don't think any of today's cars will become classics, no matter how "kewl" people now think they are. To be a classic, a car has to be repairable. Parts have to be available. Where are the little computer gizmos to come from in 25 years to get a car to run? The fancy headlight assemblies? The...? Where are the now-required super-computer diagnostics equipment to figure out what's wrong, to come from?
I'm not sure what you're asking but here in Reno, NV we have "Hot August Nights" usually the week of August every year. The entire city is filled with classic cars from all over the world. You would have to book now to show a vehicle in 2011. Same time frame just to get a room. Our population pretty much doubles during that week. I would recommend it for any old car enthusiast.

As for the question on parts: if there is demand, someone will start to make pattern parts. Older cars nowadays have to have parts made for them, or located from stock of old spares in storage somewhere. The increasing complexity may make this harder, as a wider variety of parts need used, and they have to be made to finer tolerances, but there is no reason our engineering base cannot keep up.

You see in the state of Montana you can get a drivers license at the age of 12 for daylight hours to drive to school if there are not any school buses. This law is...

Are you happy with your car? Or, do you wish in retrospect that you'd gotten something different?What car are you happy/unhappy with and why? What would you change? ("Car" includes all vehicles here—whatever you drive.)
