Re: Classic Car Favorites
any late 60's/ early 70's Dodge muscle cars, like the Demon [link to dayerses.com]
1959 Chevy Impala, I love the rear end on those
1972 Skyline
1964 Mercury Marauder (owned a 65)
any sensible "rat rod" traditional hot rod, no stupid pastel paint jobs with contrasting splashes of color two toned late 80's style paint, and no particle board sub floor with a milk crate to sit on, no fiberglass bodies with airbrushed rust, something that looks nasty but is still road worthy, this one is from the new Mad Max movie coming out called Fury Road [link to www.madmaxmovies.com] and while we are on Mad Max/ the Road Warrior I would love a black v8 interceptor (73 Ford Falcon XB GT)
 Quoting: SR*77


All of my cars have been GM except for a 1977 Cordoba. My absolutely most beautiful car was a virtual showroom new 1972 Chevy Caprice Broughm 2 door that I bought in 1977. It was perfect. Everyone thought it was new. It even smelled new. Baby blue with a white vinyl top, baby blue interior, every goodie you could ever want, 25,000 miles. Totally spotless, no rust, no scratches, no dings,not a speck of dirt on anything, PERFECT, a real dream car. I had it one month to the day. A guy ran a stop sign 4 blocks from my house, as I was on my way to the last day at work before my vacation started. Car was totaled, my left arm got broken, and the guy that hit me spun around and creamed a fire hydrant.

Re: Classic Car Favorites
2 faves i owned were a 74 buick electra limited (in that super ugly GM cockroach brown). it was a steamship, but had the 455 motor that could pull treestumps out of the ground. it could cruise all day at 85 mph and still got an honest 20 mpg. the other was a 68 lincoln mark III (in metallic emerald green). she was more like an aircraft carrier, but had the last of the 462 nail valve motors. it also had an electro-mechanical antilock brake system (which i disconnected the day it went hyperthyroid and attempted to kill me on a busy urban highway), hydraulicly powered windsheild wipers, and an 8 track tape player, roflmao. it was another speed runner, comfortable cruising at 100 mph was order of the day if it was a cop free area.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16217002


Buicks are awesome ! I used mine to move a huge boulder, and plow the alley in the winter. I have jump started and pushed more people in my Buick than I can count. I just go right through the snow drifts like a hot knife through butter !
I know what you mean about the brown. I have no idea why that awfull color was so popular for a few years. It's ghastly, IMO. My Buick is grey in and out, and the vinyl top. My Caddy is white in and out, white vinyl top, and red pinstriped. The Caddy has a 501 engine.
 Quoting: tiger1


the buick had the "silk" roof, tan crushed velour interior, and power everything. when i got it the front end was shot, so i did a full rebuild on it (everything but the box). after that it handled like it was mounted on rails. that ugly assed cockroach brown was actually a traditional GM color to appeal to the old farts that grew up in buicks and oldsmobiles, or their conservative styled offspring that wanted "dad's color". it was also a VERY robust color as far as longevity is concerned. for some reason that color seems to experience less fading and weathering. it also gave you the opportunity to tell the guy at the parking lot "cockroach brown buick", and have him run right to your car, roflmao
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16217002


LOL on the cockroach brown !!! My mother had to have brown and orange everything, but thankfully, she didn't drive. My Dad always had a white or black car. The only exception was his old GM pickup. That was green. His old Ford pickup with the pipes up the side, and tricked out to the max, was a real black beauty !
I am lucky that I never had to replace a front end, but I did have to replace the rear end on my Buick last year. It was all my fault, using it for driving lessons for my youngest. I think she accidentally did it in by throwing it in park before it was totally, absolutely stopped. She tried to be careful, but... She is my vintage muscle car nut. I have gone with her to look at cars. Some were decent deals, some were rip-offs, some were priced way too high. For right now, until she finishes college, she will make do with a 1992 Lincoln Towne Car that my husband gave her. She actually has started to restore it bit by bit, and would like to keep it until she graduates college in 2016. Then it is time for her vintage 1968-1975 Mustang or Camaro. Of all the muscule cars, she likes these 2 the best.

Convertibles are such an American Classic ! I had a friend who had a black 1965 Ford Galaxie Convertible. I have never owned one. My choice would be a 1976 Eldorado convertible. The last year of the super big Caddy's.

Re: Classic Car Favorites
In my area, the biggest problem with a classic, besides the dreaded salt in the winter, is car theft. I recommend a double set of alarms or security devices for your fine ride. I have 2 seperate systems in mine. I also keep mine locked up inside the yard with chained and padlocked gates when not driven. The gangbangers love these classic old rides, so be carefull !

I am a very fortunate person to own 2 of them, a 1983 Buick Electra Park Avenue and a 1975 Caddillac Sedan Deville. My Buick is my everyday car, while the Caddillac is a once a week pure pleasure drive.

My favorite is the 1959 shark fin Caddillac. The lines on this classic car are just breathtaking. Another favorite of mine, is a 1964 Chevrolet Impala. My first car was this one. It was a great runner,great on gas with the 283 engine, and very roomy.

Old Classics, especially the Muscle Cars, seem to be gaining in popularity with the younger generation.I was surprised at the choices of vehicles for my youngest daughter and her friends. It appears that many of this younger generation are truly interested in acquiring and restoring the vintage Camaro's, Mustangs, Chargers, etc.

What is your favorite?

My only experience was having a wrecked 1974 Caddy in a demolition derby. I couldn't drive it, because my back got broken in the accident, so my neighbors cousin drove it for me. Darn thing won it's heat and the Derby, but got too crunchy at a demo derby at another locale. It was fun watching it win. I really wish I could have driven it. My friends painted my name all over the Caddy. :)

That Mustang sounds like a real honey ! That is the car that is on my daughters short list ! She looked at a 1971, but the price was too high, and the body was not done up to specs. It was a sloppy body job, rippled and bumpy. It was not worth the $10,000 they wanted for it. We tried to get the price down, but they would not go less than $9,000. She offered them $5,000.
