I like the Golf Sportwagon.

DeanT - Posted - 11/17/2016:  16:02:57


I used to like the AMC Gremlins, but by the time I was old enough to drive, they were pretty much gone

OM45GE - Posted - 11/17/2016:  19:11:59


I've never owned an AMC car. 

DeanT - Posted - 11/18/2016:  04:15:02


My first car was an AMC Rambler

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/18/2016:  09:27:49


I remember those little Nash Ramblers...funny looking car in the '50's

Mine was a 65 



OM45GE - Posted - 11/18/2016:  11:50:49


My dad had some model of Nash when I was a kid. I remember the seats folded down into a big bed. It was long gone before I was old enough to drive and make use of that feature. big

DeanT - Posted - 11/19/2016:  06:39:23


My Dad had a 57 Chevy, two door black and white. I saw it in photos, and it was in great shape. He sold it for $350 and bought a Station wagon because they needed more room when my sister and I came along.

OM45GE - Posted - 11/19/2016:  11:48:38


That would be worth some decent money today. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/19/2016:  18:05:57


The '56 and '57 were my favourite Chevys

OM45GE - Posted - 11/19/2016:  20:24:35


I was never a huge Chevy fan, but I always liked the '57 Nomad.

I love the old trucks. I restored a 52 Chevy 3600. This was my baby back in the day.

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/20/2016:  06:36:37


Nice!

DeanT - Posted - 11/20/2016:  11:49:07


Selling it is one of the big regrets I have. I could still be driving it. That photo was taken the day after I had it painted. 

OM45GE - Posted - 11/20/2016:  17:47:10


That is really nice. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/22/2016:  09:26:49


Going to classic car shows always gets me wanting to restore an old car,but I hear it can get expensive.

DeanT - Posted - 11/22/2016:  11:08:23


expensive and time consuming. This was my other project, a 72 Buick. It was so perfect I hated to drive it. I enjoyed restoring it, but never really liked the car. I sold it shortly after getting it done. The guy who bought it turned it into a drag car, so it got to see a lot of action at the strip. 

OM45GE - Posted - 11/22/2016:  12:59:24


I'll second what Dean said. I restored a Jaguar XKE. I wasn't done and some of the big bills hadn't been paid when I got divorced and my ex got the car, the debt and had to give me cash. I bought an original one that didn't need restoration and smiled every mile I drove it.

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/22/2016:  13:39:37


I had a high school friend who was trying to restore an old Triumph TR2 . It sat in his Dad's driveway on blocks for 5 years partly redone. One day I drove by and it was gone. His Dad got sick of looking at it.

I learned my lesson and have been driving beaters ever since. Much less stress

OM45GE - Posted - 11/22/2016:  18:28:40


I still like sports cars. 

dmiller - Posted - 11/22/2016:  21:32:43


We never had a "car" when I was growing up.  Dad always bought station wagons.  He was always hauling stuff around with the back seat down, and it was handy for our two beagles to take out rabbit hunting.  Put the back seat back up, and it worked great for our family of four around town and on vacation.  I used to have a couple of "classic" cars many years ago.  I think of them the same way I think of old instruments I used to have - - - kicking myself for selling them.  If I knew then what I know now - - -

OM45GE - Posted - 11/23/2016:  02:40:17


I'm right there with you on the cars I wish I'd held on to. Two E-Type Jags, the Shelby Mustang, an Alfa Romeo Julietta Sprint Speciale. They're all six figure cars now. Then there's the 289 FIA competition Shelby Cobra that I didn't buy for $5,000. They sell in the million dollar range now. 

DeanT - Posted - 11/24/2016:  05:12:07


My favorite vehicle of all times was my 77 Ford F150, straight 6, three-on-the-tree. Simple. Never failed to get me where I was going. beat up. Moved me several times and many of my friends. Hauled more stuff than I'll ever remember. 

OM45GE - Posted - 11/24/2016:  07:48:57


I had a 67 Ford half ton. It was my favorite pickup. 8' bed with clearance enough between the wheel wells for a sheet of plywood. Like yours, straight six an three on the tree (although I converted it to a floor shifter). It was also low enough so you could get things in and out of the bed easily, not like the things they sell now.

I'd still like to get a hold of an older truck from that era. Definitely don't see them around much anymore. I wouldn't restore it, I'd just keep it going and drive the crap out of it. 

OM45GE - Posted - 11/25/2016:  04:12:42


I brought mine back from Colorado.  I'd still be driving it but my ex got it in the divorce. 

DeanT - Posted - 11/25/2016:  06:19:43


small price to pay for happiness

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/25/2016:  07:14:33


I had a '69 Chev pickup years ago - it's funny how I really notice one if I see one now. Or any type vehicle that I've owned before.

This was one of the items she put down that she wanted thinking I would fight for it and said it was worth more than twice what it was so she would get cash from me. My lawyer agreed to her proposed property division and valuation and asked that she pay me the cash value. They couldn't argue and the judge granted it. 

DeanT - Posted - 11/25/2016:  17:01:25


Well done! My x got to keep my mini-van, and I was on the hook for tree years worth of payments. I knew how much she hated it, and played a hunch. I was right, and she traded it in less than a week after our divorce was final. No more payments.



 

OM45GE - Posted - 11/25/2016:  17:55:21


Good one. 

DeanT - Posted - 11/26/2016:  06:12:06


The earth is spinning faster or something. This year flew by faster than any year ever.

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/26/2016:  06:44:28


I figure as we get older our mind slows down which makes everything seem to go faster

OM45GE - Posted - 11/26/2016:  13:21:30


I heard one theory that as we get older a year (or month or day) makes up less and less of our time lived so it seems to go by faster. 



 

DeanT - Posted - 11/26/2016:  14:41:20


I always thought things would slow down when I retired. Now days are way shorter. Like it's 9am and then 20 minutes later it's 4pm.

OM45GE - Posted - 11/26/2016:  16:33:26


One more reason to savor every moment. 

DeanT - Posted - 11/26/2016:  19:19:19


yep, we are getting to the age that you never know what may happen. 

OM45GE - Posted - 11/27/2016:  03:16:25


True indeed. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/27/2016:  08:17:52


I plan on living til 100, but you know what they say about plans

OM45GE - Posted - 11/27/2016:  12:47:12


It's good to have a goal. 

DeanT - Posted - 11/27/2016:  14:17:04


I just don't want to be laid to rest with a pair of perfectly good knees. Therefore I run...

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/27/2016:  16:37:24


I'll give my knees to the needy

DeanT - Posted - 11/27/2016:  17:07:24


I'm an organ doner, but I don't know how good mine will be much longer...

OM45GE - Posted - 11/28/2016:  02:38:04


I am too, but it's a good question - are there too many miles on your parts at some point?

DeanT - Posted - 11/28/2016:  04:08:43


whoever gets my eye will need my trifocals...

OM45GE - Posted - 11/28/2016:  05:22:27


They'll get my lens implants that I got in my cataract surgery.

at least I could give someone a good set of lungs and an enlarged heart, from marathon running.

Maybe the recipient would turn into a runner.
