    Any other classic car folks out there?


    I started talking about this in another thread, but just wondering if there is anyone else out there with a classic car? I have a 1959 Edsel Ranger that I just finished restoring back to stock this spring and got to drive around most of the summer. I love this car, it is a metal boat that is about 17 feet long, so when you drive it, it's like sitting on a springy floating couch. The thing is so long that the front end and the rear end are usually in different zip codes

    Here are some pics:

    Beautiful car you have there!!! My friend and I restored a 1935 Ford Coupe, 1972 Lincoln Continental (his mother's car), a 1968 GT 500KR Shelby Mustang and a few Corvettes. I've owned a few "classics" (1968 Mustand convertible, 1966 Rambler Classic 770 and a 1974 Porsche 911 Targa). My daily driver is a 2010 MazdaSpeed3. I'll post some pics of my car when I can...

    Beautiful cars!!! My other love are Studebakers, like the Lark and the Golden Hawk. The Speed3 is fun and practical, since it's a hatchback. I'm always carrying around drums, computers, etc... and it fits 4 adults comfortably. When I bought it, Ford owned Mazda, so I got it on "A-Plan" and saved a few thousand.

    Is 1978 considered classic?

    That is my dream car A Guy! Always loved the black with gold rims and the gold bird on the hood! Smokey and the bandit style. That is absolutely a pretty car!! I would trade my Edsel in a heart beat for one.
