US cars were the most gorgeous, but also the most terribly gas thirsty My favorites are 40's and 50's ones, lincoln continental 42 !!! thunderbird 55 ... Today, i think US cars are ugly, common, so unremarkable... Just as every cars itw imo.
I love the look of the first Continentals, though I lean more towards the cars of the 30's, because they were so big & ostentatious, like the Auburns, Packards & Cords. I also like Hispano Suiza, Bugatti, Talbot Lago & Delahaye. I definitely agree that American cars today are built for function not style
Another one of my favorites. I really wish I lived close by so, 1) I could meet you and 2) get to know your two fine cars. Hell, I'd definity chip in for gas just to take a ride. Cadillac has had some real winners over the years. This was one of them. Cars today lack the style of say this particular one. They're nice, but something is missing.
I was driving around here on the Cape with a friend, just after I'd bought the Monte from him, and I saw one tail light in a row of cars at an autobody repair shop & knew I had to have it. One-owner, AZ car whose owner had died & had just been shipped here for restoration...they had already repainted, but I bought "as-is" at (what I think was) a good price & did the rest myself. She PURRRS like a kitten now...at least she DID, the last time I could afford the gas to take her out on the road! lolz
