I have been a 1931 Chevrolet owner (and grateful VCCA member) for over 50 years. Yes, there are a few repairs that are more difficult than 50s vehicles. These 90+ year old vehicles were built when repair shops were few and far between so working under the back yard shade tree was in vogue. We cuss the thick babbit bearings that were designed with shims so rod and main bearings could be adjusted and not replaced or reworked. Many repairs can be done with adjustable wrench, hammer, screwdriver, end wrenches and elbow grease. As a VCCA Tour participant we have repaired them on the side of the road, motel parking lot and occasionally in or on a trailer. Try that on a more modern car.
Despite what others will tell you a properly maintained 1931 can be driven on most roads at posted speeds. Maybe not the race tracks disguised as limited access highways or in major metropolitan cities where crazies turn a trip to see grandma or the grocery store into a Dodgem car adventure. That is one reason I live in the country where cows munch grass across the road.
Come back as needed. We are friendly (except for the couple of old grouches) and collectively have hundreds for years experience owning, driving, repairing and enjoying these approaching centenarians.
