Thank you for sharing. Those are pretty cool cars. The 40鈥檚 cars had the greatest lines and body styles.
The 40s?
You sure about that?
The war years cars are some of the most lame cars because of well the war effort.
30s cars are cool and then by the mid 50s they got cool again.
55 Thunderbird was cool .
The 鈥渂aby birds 鈥.

Yep! Pretty sure a 40鈥檚 Mercury looks better than anything from the 80s.

Weather permitting, we enjoy going to local car shows. They are generally an afternoon of free entertainment, & now even my daughter likes going to them.

This resto-modded 1st Gen Camaro was my favorite of the season.

Not sure what suspension it was running (Detroit Speed?) but it had control arms and not the stock leaf springs.

I grew up in the 60's during the muscle car era. Friends owned Road Runners, Camaros, Malibus, etc. I always preferred sports cars like Triumphs, Austin Healeys (especially the 3000), MGs, Porsches. I ended up buying a 1970 MGB. I loved that car and it was a hoot to drive in road rallys. Wish I still had it, but I had to give it up as my family grew and their was no room for a baby seat.

My Mazda is 26 years old, does that count? Four more years and I'll be eligible for the blue tag.

  • Antique or Historic Vehicle plates, for vehicles that:
    • Were made after 1945 AND are at least 30 years old, and.
    • Have an engine that is at least 30 years old.

Interesting history for those split window Corvettes. When they were introduced for the 1963 model year, the public hated them; and dealers had trouble selling them. Some dealers even had the rear divider removed and converted them to single glass rear windows in order to sell them. Other cars were converted by owners who bought them; and decided that the split window was a PITA. The rear window conversion became a very popular aftermarket conversion for some of the cars when they were less than a year old. Chevrolet saw the handwriting on the wall; and discontinued the split window for the 1964 cars.

I'll go photograph local car shows here and there. Give out a few door prizes (8x10s, Artistic edits, etc.).

But YES, I like old cars, and Trucks, and Motorcycles, and planes.

Life and economics determine my taste in vehicles. The favorites were my first car, a 1956 Ford, a Ford pickup of 1957 vintage. Had a 1969 Chevy pickup that I put a big engine in. Had a 1993 Jeep Wrangler.

Current rides are a Toyota Corolla 16 years old and a Ford Ranger pickup 29 years old.
