OldManDownDRoad: Gas was a quarter a gallon and a sixer of Bud tallboys was $1.25.
Quantum Apostrophe: People can still use a car from 1967, or a plane for that matter. How about a computer?
ybishop: First car bought with my own money, great A/C, BIG back seat (wink, wink)[www.autogush.com image 850x565]
Generation_D: First car: 1965 Impala with 3 on the tree shifting and manual brakes/steering.You punks try and drive one of those with 16 year old stick arms and legs. That thing was better than going to the gym. Try backing up to parallel park.
Earguy: It was pretty awesome.You know how people talk about having sex in the back seat of a car? And you look at the back seat of your car and wonder how people did it? Go to a local classic-car show and check out a late-50s Cadillac. I'm six feet tall and can lay flat in it.
Smidge204: Quantum Apostrophe: People can still use a car from 1967, or a plane for that matter. How about a computer?If only information processing required very little energy and materials and we could make it so cheap and small that even poor people could have several of them, sometimes even without knowing it...=Smidge=/Like the cars, computers from 1967 work just as good today as they did when they were made. Probably more so than the cars, actually...
midigod: I'm not sure my '75 Malibu Classic qualified as a land yacht under these rules, but it was by far my favorite car ever. It was like driving a living room. Fantastic in the snow - like a tank. And it was just as happy cruising at 125 as it was at 55. Great times.[carphotos.cardomain.com image 575x431]
loki see loki do: A malibu, cougar, or thundergodamnedbird or a farking 500 are not Land Yachts, you dumb farking kids.[www.gatewayclassiccars.com image 640x480]
