The 1960's and 1970's were the best time for cars, in my opinion. I grew up on quite a few rare cars. Mainly 70's cars, but a few 60's. Even some 40's. One of my favorite cars of all time, was this rare 1978 Oldsmobile 98LS 4 door sedan, that my Dad owned from 1990 to 1999. What made this car rare, was that it did NOT come with a vinal roof when the majority of those late 70's GM cars did. This Oldsmobile was a straight up 4 door sedan, white in color, and the only Oldsmobile of that era that I've ever seen without a vinal roof. I wish he would of kept hat car, but unfortunatly my family moved so we had to sell it. Another rare car we had was a 1961 Buick Electra 4 door hardtop with the wrap around back windsheild, which we owned from 1981 to 1985. This wasn't a 225 Electra tho, just a regular Electra. And there were only about 3000 or so Electra 4 door hardtops made for 1961, so this car was rarer then rare. I have never seen another Buick like this one. I was only a baby back then, and my Mom became pregnant with my brother. So she sold it for a 1986 Tempo. Bad move...that thing would of been worth alot of money today.
One of the oldest cars I've had the pleasure riding in, was a 1942 Hudson 4 Door Deluxe, which belonged to my Dads yuppie friend, who drove it as a daily driver back in the 90's. Beautiful car, but it didn't have the original Engine or Transmission. It had a 1967 Chevelle 350 engine, and a 3 speed Automatic on the column, to replace the 4 on the floor. Cars today really aren't the same, they're all foreign and made with alot of plastic. No one really cars about style anymore, they want economy, saftey and reliability. All thats really taken the fun of cars, today. I currently have a 1990 Jeep Cherokee, and I can honestly say that'll be the "newest" car I'll ever buy. I am currently saving up for a 2nd car...a big 60's or 70's sedan that I will use as a weekend cruiser. The original plan was to get a muscle car, but the insurance is a bit more then I can afford.
