    Favorite: 1963 220 Mercedes. Ideally White With Black Leather. :)

    I found this car once, and passed on driving out to New Mexico to pick it up. This year has the baby-sized wings, which totally crack me up. I definitely enjoy 60s-70s Volvos, Jaguar, and Porsche too, of course. Oh, and Things, older Land Rovers too, yes... Mid-old: BMW 3...

    Older Cars

    I LOVE older cars ! I prefer my own personal cars to be older than 1975 pre catalytic converter vehicles. I enjoy working on my vehicles which is possible to do on a carburated vehicle, not tunning . . but actually working on cars swapping parts, heads, camshafts, carbs, intakes...

    Yes Indeed I Do

     Old cars remind me of a simpler time, a time I wish I was a part of!  They have such beauty, wish I owned one.

    LOOOOOOVE Them...

    Corvettes, Mustangs, Camaros, Chevelles, Malibus, and Thunderbirds will all catch my attention quickly.  There is nothing quite like riding in a restored car.  All the wonderful scents of the oil that they use on the interior. the cleaner they use on the wheels...

    1st Brand New Car 79 Camaro

    My first new car was a 79 camaro berlinetta. I was married and age 21. I thought I was in heaven. I ended up with an automatic because the wife couldn't drive a stick. That was ok with me cuz the look of the ride was my addiction. I worked to keep it lookin good for many a...

    Pre Owned, Pre War Or Prehistoric?

    Have joined this group because I  love old cars, and own a few. How old does a car have to be to qualify? Really old like my 1923 Austin Seven, or just a bit old like my 1978 Range Rover. I got the bug from my dad, and also inherited several of his cars (all old) and have...

    Well I like some old cars

    but what I honestly like are older cars that were generally free of a lot of what I term useless gadgets but still have much of what I term useful advantages in technology. What is the difference? Let me give you an example. I had an 88 Mercedes 300E that was lost in a...

    The Oldschoolbus.

    I live in the inland empire of southern california. You often see many old cars in my area. One morning I was out early for a walk, just as the sun was coming up. I got to the corner and was waiting for the light, when I looked across the street, and saw in one of the turn lanes...

    Remember Playing With Hot Wheels?

    When I was a kid, I had a huge collection of those little, die-cast, race cars. I had the wheel-shaped carrying case and the plastic track pieces too. I absolutely loved them. I would spend hours playing with them, spread them all out on the floor around me, jumping them off the...

    My Short Story Idea For An Homage...

    My idea for an homage to many "Car with a life of it's own" films and books came about because with the exception of one or two of these, the vehicle is always evil. I wanted to see one that was not only good, but rather than being haunted was somehow brought to life by the care...

    I Absolutely Love Them

    There's just something about old cars; they seem to have more character. Even the most mundane of old cars, the Ford Falcons and Plymouth Valiants of old seem to have a uniqueness and beauty that is utterly lacking in today's cars. Every time I see an old car driving along, I am...
