Favourite Cars?

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

Favourite Cars?

Post by jasonsilver » Fri Sep 21, 2018 12:22 pm

Personally I love the late 30's, like the 1937 Chev Coup, the 1934 through 1937? Studebaker, with the big grills, the swooping fenders, the laid back profile, luxury and excess mixed with class, streamlining, you get the idea.

What's your favourite "Old Fashioned" vehicle?

Old cars?
Did you say old cars?
I have a thing for Buick Roadmasters,especially the 1955 model.
I don't have one just admire them as they are too hard to get parts for.
One reason I like the tri-fives is the strong after market reproduction of parts.
Here is a video of my 57 Chevy taked my Mrs R:

I've got a '24 Ford Model T, a '58 Morgan and a '26 Buick Standard in the garage :D
My very first car was a '47 Chevy coupe, straight 6 and three on the tree

The 1st gen Camaro is a great car. We are not the only ones who likes them, nearly every piece is available reproduction.http://realdealsteel.com/c-1105811-bodi ... amaro.html

Lots of them, but these two near the top of the list:

1948 Buick Streamliner by Norman Timbs

1935 Hispano Suiza K6 Cabriolet

As for those 50s GM cars. Love ‘em. But somehow I can’t call ‘em old fashioned, or what does that make me? Ancient?
I still remember the day my dad drove home in a brand, spanking new one of these...

That 51 Chevy is close for me, I've always wanted a 50. Convertable would be nice. One of the first cars I drove was my granddad's 54 Chevy Bel Air. I'd be happy just to have that one back.

New Zealanders didn't have made in New Zealand cars when I lived there for a short span. They referred to American made cars as "Yank Tanks."

Nice car. One thing I really like is when you opened the hood, I knew what I was looking at. Used to be that when I got a new car I would open the hood to look at the motor. I no longer bother, because I can't identify half of what is there.

I hear you. We bought Mrs R a new car in 2008. I don't even know where the battery is.
