Any classic car owners here? Show me!

Could not find a thread on this, so thought I would start one.

Before we got back into camping, we (I) was into classic cars. Had several for a dozen years, and others not so long.

At our heyday we had 4 cars (Left to right) 70 Plymouth Superbird, 67 Ford Country Sedan, 69 Camaro RS vert (wife's), and 69 Thunderbird.



We bought the 429 Thunderbird, because the 289 Country Sedan would not have the gumption to haul our reintroduction to camping trailer.



In addition, had a 69 Cougar vert.



All are gone now.

Only thing left is another 67 Country Sedan that is currently undergoing restoration. It's a 390 car with working factory A/C.



The cars were fun when I had them, but things change. To afford retirement and the new 5th and truck, some toys had to be sacrificed.

So, there must be others here with a penchant for old cars. Show me!

You guessed it, 1960. I bought it in pieces in 1983. It came home on a car trailer and 3 pickup loads of parts. It was restored in my garage and has been on the road since 1986.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Very cool. Wish I had the talent and patience.


Gene, your a very lucky guy. Oh and the cars are great too!


Lori, beautiful Mustang. About a 67? (People stop making me guess! ).
