damn right old cars are cool

most of my fav cars are about the same age as me...

My poor car is long forgot because of the Z car.

The original Fairlady:

This one isn't mine though.


When Nissan placed a PMC 6 cylinder in it, it was quite the monster and even beat the 2000GT.. Though the car never finished the only race it was in due to electrical issues from rain.

Mines in pieces currently doing a frame up restore, but overall its a Japanese car to the core so there are quite a few of them around daily driven. Funny thing is you can pick them up for $100 to 20,000, I paid 400 for mine and have invested around 1500 in parts so far.

That one I posted actually has an SR20 powerplant, myself not sure on doing an engine swap or not into mine and I am on a mission to pass any miatas I see after I'm done.

Chevrolette Corvette "Stingray" (1967) Roadster


The 1967 roadster model was the favorite of most afficionados, and is also my personal favorite. Don't underestimate the engines of this time. They were demons, peaking in at close to 400bhp (depending on the model you got), with speeds that go well over 100mph.

In fact, many cars during this time could go at speeds well over the limit these days. Reason? Not that many cars on the road as today, and gas wasn't that expensive. That meant bigger engines, faster cars, and just more reason for people to believe "bigger, faster... better"


ah don't forget to mention the crappy Vietnamese made suspension corvettes are notorious for having

Notoriously shitty suspension? Once again, I have to ask, where do you get that idea from?

They also continuously complained about the steering

The classics have paved the way for future cars that improved over the years.
so, they're sorta cool in that way I believe. also depends on which car is considered cool

The first car I learned to drive 1955 Studebaker stick on the column was 13 years old. Motorcycle XR 75 Honda a 4 stroke with kit added 55 MPH great to run though streams that thing out weighed me 4 time flipping 300 Lbs top sometimes hurt i was 11. Combine to thrash the wheat barliey and a swarthier to cut it down at 12, I had to weight to drive the track until 14 years old. Cousin rolled one and died. another words, to sharp of incline he shoulda known better, farm work.

Column-mounted manual shifter? How do those things work? I was always under the assumption that it has the H-pattern, but turned sideways on the steering column.

No different than stick on the floor you your clutch is and brake are still floor. It's been over thirty years but I if i am not mistaken it straight shift. Like a automatic transmission with it stick on the column. The same with some of the 40 pickup trucks. It been over thirty years ago.
