Yea, I like driving classic cars. My dad has a 1978 Dodge Tradesman 200. With a Big Block 400 Torqueflite 727 3 speed auto. a Dana 44 Limited Slip. Chin SPoiler, 2 Moonroofs, Rear: LT295/65 R15 and the fronts are LT265/70 R15, Chin Spoiler, Lund Windsheild Visor. Custom Interior.

It's nice, I like it, feels good to have power when I want it.

Yeah thats one cool thing about classics, is that you can always tell the year and make of them, unlike some of these new demented toasters and whacky waffle makers

I'll trade my Civic for your 'Vette. C'mon, I know you hate the bad gas mileage, and high insurance.

I'm a teenager, I don't have other exspenses, Trade?









J/k, I'm sure your not that stupid.

Favorite classic car:
Mercedes SL300 Gullwing.

Gullwing doors are one of the features that automatically make a car cool. If you're keeping score, I have also said the any car with the engine behind the driver is automatically cool.

Therefore the DeLorean is really cool!

Thumbs up Default Coolness

Yes, while they seem to be rather rare, they do qualify for my list of features that make a car automatically cool.

Lets recap, in no particular order:
  • Scissor Doors
  • Gullwing Doors
  • Suicide Doors
  • Hard-Top Convertibles
  • Mid- or Rear-Engine Drivetrains

Hmmm... what else...?

I'm a big fan of the old Chevy Nomads, especially the '56. You can do so much to those things to make them look good. I think the nicest one I've seen was made by Titus, that guy on the show, Titus. I saw a short clip of it on some car show on saturday afternoon, and it looked real nice.
