    Good luck finding one with the split window! That is a holy grail car if there ever was one.

    Gotta go out west. I have a 66 hardtop now. Now that there has been snow, it's in the garage for the winter. No rust, and I want to keep it that way.

    My first car.
    :)

    My pick would be a 1950's Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. Or a Talbot Lago.

  15. The same guy who designed the Corvette Stingray designed the GM Opel GT. We use to call them Mini- Vettes.

    I always liked the looks of the 71-73 Mustang Fastbacks. Second would be 67-68 Pontiac Firebirds. Third would be the Vokswagen Thing. Always dug 'em.

    My parents had this car when I was born. It was all red though, not a 2-tone. One of the nicest Fords ever! 30E0F579-DE36-4739-91B8-C41637CE3D5A-2168-000003A2C3D686DC_tmp.jpg
    Edit: I love 2 door wagons.

    Early 80s Chevy Silverado. My family was pretty much poor in the 70s. We had one GranTorino station wagon and my father drove it to work. So my siblings and mother and I walked everywhere. In '79 my father got a job at a papermill in maintenance and that, to our family, was like winning the lottery. In late 1980 he pulled into the yard in something similar to this.

    It was one of many signs that things were getting better financially for my family. To this day I can't help but smile when I see one. I am actually trying to find one to ride around in as a beater just for fun.
