Re: Favorite Classic cars, what are they.

My favorites, wow there are so many but here goes, my favorite w/o a doubt is the 1969 L-88 Corvette. The 69 because unlike the previous models the 69 had the L-88 callout on the hood in addition to the 427 badge. Next is the 1969 COPO Camaro, it has to be Hugger Orange. Last, is the 1965 Shelby GT350, I just love they way they look.

I am also lucky enough to have one in my town('69 Boss 429). He attends all cruises and Mustang shows with his 3 cars.... the '69 Boss 429(Rangoon red w/ Boss stripe package), a '69 Boss 302(acupolco blue w/Boss stripe package), and a '68 Fastback drag car with a few Shelby clone modifications(black). His cars alone would nearly make my dream garage! I can't imagine what it must be like to own 2 perfectly resored Boss Mustangs...

Re: Favorite Classic cars, what are they.

I was under the impression that classic cars were cars that were made prior to 1962 or something like that. but since anything seems to go here, I say one of my favorite classic cars has got to be a 1953 studebaker, now if a later supercharegd 289 STude engine will fit under the hood that would be the shit. I like Muscle cars too but I really like all of them in their own way. I am currently on the lookout for a 1965 riviera, the headlights do it for me. I Own a 68 camaro and a 71 Chevy pickup and i usually lean torwards GM but anything made between 1967 and 1971 is prety cool in my book.

Re: Favorite Classic cars, what are they.

Favorites have to be the original early mustangs... my dad has a fully rebuild (by hand, by himself) 1964.5 mustang convertible (first year they made them, red with a white top/interior)... OOOH, I love that car... there's no other feeling in the world than driving around in it on a summer day...

I guess I prefer the 70 because I like those tower fin taillights. The fronts ARE quite similar. Any Deville. 472 V8, talk about a powerful highway cruiser! Horsepower started to go down starting with the 71 and they started to get even bigger, much uglier, and slower.

Hands down 1961 Jaguar Mark X - more than a car, a work of art

Re: Favorite Classic cars, what are they.

As I understood it, anything more than 25 years old is an antique. At least, that's the boundaries for putting such plates on cars here. That includes anything that I read about in high school, which means we could discuss Cordobas, T-Birds from the late '70s, or, my favorite from that time, the 2 door Caprice from '77 to '79. After the '74 to '76 models, it was a breath of fresh air.

I have a hard time defining anything as a favorite. I admit to fairly broad tastes, though, when we get to this, that first choice is usually American. I liked GM cars from the 60's but not the GTOs and such. Two of my favorites would be the Impala SS from '67 and '68, and the Corvair Corsa.
