    ^^ We moved out of Chicago in the late 50's and my brother got his DL early at age 15 in order to drive to high school. My parents found a Nash Metropolitan for sale that needed engine work so he and my brother tore it down and rebuilt it in the driveway. It was a pure DIY effort as I recall they had an issue getting it started...turned out they had installed the new camshaft backwards IIRC. He drove it for maybe two years after getting it running.

    I wish I had bought one of those back in the mid 80s when they were still cheap along with a '69 Camaro, a '69 Mustang fastback, a '70 Chevelle and probably a dozen other cars, hindsight is 20/20.

    Now THIS was a car! One weekend in 1957, four of us (and two cases of beer) started up from Lackland AFB to the State Fair in Austin in one of these.

    I'm sure it was a good weekend, because we all made formation on Monday AM, and the car survived, too. What are these things worth today??

    My first car was a 69' Mustang Mach 1 (no photo but the Mustang has been pretty well represented already)

    Other favorites include...

    Of modern American cars, NOBODY else in the world makes anything as nice as the big American convertibles of the mid-20th Century CE.

    I'm kinda fond of this one because it's in my garage. Raced it from '79 - 96. 1966 Volvo P1800.

    Wow, that's one good-looking car. Engine pic?

    Came with the Ford/Cosworth/Porsche 2.5L V6 and was very fun to drive!

    Had one of those in dark green. That little engine snarled when you floored it. Loved the sound of it from the driver's seat.

    My first car... The 1966 Comet Cyclone. Mine had a 289 automatic not the 390 3 speed.
    If I had more sense and money at that age mine would have looked as good as this one
    with the fast engine.

    I'm really starting to like these modern super cars.
