If you're going to own a vintage car, you'd better understand the maintenance involved -- greasing, tune-ups, brake adjustments, all the stuff that's "maintenance free" in a modern car. Either you do all that stuff yourself or you find a local mechanic who knows how to do it and won't bleed you dry. And you'd better stock up on spare parts, because you never know when some random whatsit is going to fail. And with all of that, you've got to deal with the reality that driving an 85hp car at 40mph is going to annoy the jumped-up doofus in the jacked-up pickup behind you and that he's going to roll coal in your face as soon as he can pass you. That is to say, if he doesn't actually run you off the road and into a ditch first. I enjoy my '41 a lot. But I enjoy it on its terms, not necessarily mine or anyone else's.
