DZER's dream cars ...

If I ever get obscenely rich, one of the things I will spend my money on is classic cars. I love older vehicles a lot more than I do newer vehicles. Don't get me wrong; there are a lot of cool looking newer vehicles that I would love to drive. But I just like the classic cars I grew up yearning for much more.

I guess my taste in cars is kind of like my taste in music — I just prefer the older stuff, which have stood the test of time and held up well.

So I present to you some of my dream, wanna-have-badly vehicles.

The Ford T-bucket hot rod. Very cool ... especially in candy apple red.

The Ford Model A hot rod, very similar to the Model T above.
The magazine CarToons got me into these vehicles.

Oh baby ... the 1969 Mustang. A very muscular muscle car.

The 1959 Corvette Stingray. Corvettes are amazing vehicles,
and the older ones are the very best. I know that I probably
can't fit behind the steering wheel on this one, but I love it.

The 1959 Chevy Apache pickup ... one bad-ass truck.

The 1957 Chevy Bel Air. The lines, the fins, the tail lights. *sigh*

The 1932 Ford Deuce Coupe. I love the fenders, the headlights,
just the entire form and shape and feel of this vehicle.


Random Guam Fact Of The Day:
• The maximum speed limit on Guam is 45 mph, but only in a few select, short areas. In most places, the speed limit is 35 mph.

69 mustang please.

couple of years ago i passed a guy parking a 65 or 66 ford fairlaine wagon - red and putting a for sale sign. I drove the rest of the 20 minutes to work called him and he had already sold it.
Then i got a cell phone.

velma: the stang rocks, doesn't it?

and I know what you mean about missing out on a deal like that ... I actually had a chance several years ago to get a 55 Chevy in very excellent condition ... I told the guy I would call him the next morning after thinking it over ... and I actually called back in early evening, but someone offered cash about an hour before and it was lost to me forever ... *sigh*

Strumpet said...

Yeah, I wanna black '69 'stang too!

Or, a rockabilly boy who drives a red '57 Chevy with those fins...

Mmmmm....

Suze said...

Dzer, I like the Mustang, it looks capable of doing 35mph. LOL.

Classic cars look great but what about the aircon and the CD player? I like my comfort and a little luxury being a woman. ;)

DZER said...

strumpet: hmmm ... can I interest you in a guy who drives an 11-year-old beat up Nissan pickup? LOL

suze: the Stang is very hot ... and you can always retrofit the classics with modern amenities ;)
