One thing to keep in mind is we (collectors) make up a tiny percentage of the general population. So when a person says the younger generation doesn't care about this stuff, in my opinion you could state the same thing about my generation, I'm 63 by the way.

I'm seeing a younger crowd at shows that in no way do they remember the days of full service gas stations and pumps with globes yet they are out there collecting this stuff.

I see a bright future for this hobby to remain relevant.
