    Classic Cars

    I'm really starting to like classic cars, is anybody else in to them? If so do you own any?

    I don't own any, but my father has a beautiful '57 T-Bird (Red) that I've been driving the last couple of days... it's beautiful. Will post pics soon!

    I've always liked classic cars and have attended a few small shows.

    LOL Duke

    I just came back from Volo museum here in Illinois, they have a 1965 Cobra I am thinking of buying. Check out their inventory and check out the Cobra Volo Auto Museum - Hollywood Star Car Collection and Auto Attractions

    Nice site...and a Cobra!! Very nice. I've seen some great reproductions at shows that look so much like a new one.

    I'm kind of a Vette man myself though.

    Did you see the 196? Vette up there? Don't know the year I think 1963. 700 made 500 known.

    Beauty. But I'm not a vette guy and I won spend 167k on a show car. I buy to drive!!!

    That is a fantastic Museum/dealership........I was there about ten years ago (bit of a drive from so-cal) and still have one of the entrance tokens. If I can't make it to Volo, we do have some great car museums out here, The Peterson (which has a 1948 Tucker) and The Nethercutt, both have their own draws, but I do like the marble floors & columns in Nethercutt's building #2!

    My Grandfather owned some spectacular cars including one of the earliest Porsche's brought to America, a 1941 Packard Limo, 1948 Packard Woody Wagon, 1954 Jag, a few caddies and he even created his own solar car the "SolarWind" in 1986. Some really "neat" stuff!

    Does anyone here watch the "SPEED" channel.........lots of auctions, so you can keep your figure on the pulse of the collector car market!!

    Never watched the speed channel. There is a 1955 Belair up there, blue w/o posts on the hard top. It's beautiful: Volo Auto Museum:: 1955 CHEVROLET BEL AIR - Used Inventory might pick this one up, forget the cobra replica.

    Very Nice! I actually happen to own a 1957 Chevy Nomad...........unfortunately it's just a die cast model LOL But that is the rarest year of all the Nomads.

    I have a cousin in Elgin IL that consigned his 1955 Cadillac to Volo. It was a beauty with a pale green body and dark green top.....didn't sell because the price he wanted was nuts! In January he sent it off to Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale AZ and took a $10k loss. It is a good time to be buying classic cars, a very bad time to sell! He's keeping his 1957 convertible.....don't want to lose more money LOL
