When student Harry Dewhurst was looking for a cheap, stylish car, he didn’t expect to end up driving a 35-year-old vehicle once dubbed “the worst British car ever made.”

The 21-year-old from Brighton on the south coast of England grew up with the classic Jaguars and Ferraris driven by this father. But when it came to getting his own car, he decided to join the growing ranks of “Youngtimer” drivers, the mostly 20- and 30-somethings who are learning to love the “ugly” family cars of the ‘70s…
