I passed my driver’s test when a 57 chevy went past as I was taking the test and I stopped to watch. The guy testing me proceeded to tell me all about his first chevy. It was a bonding moment for us, which I was thankful for because I’d already failed the test once. Now my dad collects vintage cars. After losing money in the stock market in the 90s he figured he might as well lose his money on something he enjoyed. He has the yellow studebaker used in the movie Chinatown (the actual car from the movie). It’s an interesting collection of quirky old cars – I love them.

We purchased a 1972 Chevelle convertible about a year ago. It was something my husband had wanted to do for some time and wanted it to be something for he and my father to enjoy together. Admittedly, when we bought it, I was somewhat indifferent to it. Well, guess who now LOVES the car? That’s right…me! Little compares to cruising in a classic car – espeically a covertible!

It was sweet!

GayProf: Ever since you drew my attention to the Dodge Charger I’ve shared your lust for muscle cars. But like you, I wonder what role a car like that would play in my RL.

And pedestrian: you wouldn’t want to pump water through a 1940s vintage truck. (Water + 02 = . . . )

A buddy of mine in high school had an unrestored 50s Chevy with the pink and grey paint scheme. It looked awesome in its faded glory. (I went to HS in Southern California).

Good design does last, but so does quality manufacturing. I have a 1978 BMW R100S, last of the 1970s superbikes. It totally outlasted the Harley Davidson and Triumph motorcycles of the same era in terms of reliability and durability. Happily, both Harley and the reborn Triumph have gotten their manufacturing acts together.

I really want a 1960s Porsche 911.

Had I a license to drive, I might go for the 1956 Ford Fire Truck with functional siren, lights, etc., but where would I get the water?

Great car!

His restored cars are gorgeous! I particularly like the bright blue 1937 Bugatti, though I wouldn’t want to own it, even if price were not an issue; these gems can cost more than new luxury cars: http://www.f40.com/

We usually try to make it up there to see these beauties. I always lusted after the ’57 Chevy and the ’65 Mustang. Doubt I’ll ever get one. Oh, well! It’s always good to have a dream.
