    What's your favorite era of cars?

    Personally, I love cars made from around like 1954 to 1990 or so the best. That's like the golden age of automobiles for me.

    What are some of your favorite car models/years? Let's get some pictures up in here. A car is about as American as apple pie or baseball.

    My favorite cars are ones that hold up well and require very little maintenance or repair.

    SO far my four favorite cars that I have owned are Suzuki Samurai, Ford six cylinder Econoline van, Ford six cylinder F 150 Lariat, and Toyota Tacoma four cylinder.

    My most expensive to keep cars were my Volvo, Peugeot, and Cadillac Coupe de Ville.

    My GMC truck was a good buy for a used vehicle, and ended up costing me a total of about $180/mo. including purchase cost and maintenance, but I got tired of the roof rusting out.

    Dude, that's a pretty big era you got there. If I had to narrow it down, I'd say mid 60's to mid 70's.

    The era of the great automobiles was from the mid-twenties 'til WW2. That was the period of the Deusenbergs, Packards, Cadillac V-12s, Lincolns etc.

    '62-'72 Hands down.

    Two in particular,

    My dream car if I ever strike it rich:

    1962 Chrysler 300H Convertible


    A close second:

    1969 Plymouth GTX

    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."
