I completely agree and dont think they will ever be called anything other than foxes. But accoring to the Antique Automobile Club of America a classic is defined as a automobile 20-45 yrs old

Whats the point of owning one if you dont drive it.
BINGO!

Our cars are going to be classics one day...should we stop driving them?

I didn't buy my car so I could park it in a garage 360 days of the year and look at it.

Yeah I knew about the actual Eleanor gt500, I donít know what else to call itÖso what do I call it.

Pascal that is one nicely kept car

The reason vintage froums directed me here was because i don't know about engines at all, so they suggested i get one later when i have more time to learn, and since it will affect my education

I went on americanmuscle.com, thanks for the suggestion(younggun) and I think these would look good, what do you guys think

no, they are exempt from smog testing prior to a certain year. Plus the older cars are easier to work on. there is no electronics to worry about

But for a DD, especially in winter, you want something that is sure to fire up.

My left brain and right brain are fighting again. Aesthetically, its gorgeous from a pure looks standpoint, but, the left side of my brain is telling me that it shouldn't.
