Hopefully not just the economy but something longer term...
edited September 2008
Of course it's the economy!
It just means that people are hanging onto their old cars, they can't afford to buy new ones or won't risk buying a new one when there's a good chance of the job going out of the window.
Remember that you are an Englishman and thus have won first prize in the lottery of life.
The registration date for cars changed a while ago, so the comparison with 1966 is invalid and cheap.
Generally as people get richer and richer, they will buy more cars more often.
