Beautiful cars. The Mark II convertible pulling the Chris Craft (?) is almost more than I can take. Thanks for the great shots. Ron

very nice

Barry,

I was sitting here trying to figure out how to decrease our overloaded stable, mostly in hopes of keeping my happy home....and then I see your post, and especially the picture of your 55 Porsche Continental.....now I am trying to figure out how to get back my 55 Porsche (just a Speedster) that has already been sold. I am not sure if I should thank you or curse you.

John

I say just buy a bigger building to put them in! That solved my problem.

Just wondered if you have any pics of your truck and car to post? Would love to see them. It's neat that people are willing to stick with their older vehicles in a world that seems so driven (pun intended) to have new one's every year (not that there's anything wrong with that either). I intend the '57 to be my daily driver when I retire and the 70 to be the toy, given we use the '57 now as our tow vehicle and put a ton of miles on it.

Just joined the board w/ our '54 Flying Cloud. Once restored(the trailer) I will be pulling it w/ one of these. The '51 Merc is just about back on the road again. Need to get some more recent pics of it. The other is our 57 Caddy. The Merc is on it's 3 engine, after two Faltheads I finally put in a small block chevy, but it will become a much better tow vehicle....so w/ the new engine I decided to freshen up the car also. I've been driving it for almost 20 years and it had alot of road rash.
I've probably put 60,000 + miles on the Caddy since I got her back in 1997. That Flying Cloud is gonna look sweet behind either one of those. I really enjoy taking those cars out on long road trips. No better way to see the country than through those big windshields.

Great cars El Jefe. You are right, either car will look outstanding with the Flying Cloud in tow. That will make for a great picture. Love the caddy. An outstanding highway car and the color is perfect.

El Jefe: Nice cars. I bid on a '51 Merc at a B-J Auction in LA a couple of years ago. Couldn't get it, but I'm still looking.

My Saab is 10 years old so I suppose it qualifies as an old used car rather than a classic. However, it's a classic to me and it will be in the future. Most of the 900s are 2 litre injection but this one is the turbo and get's you up to the speed limit quite adequately!

I love the original 50s Chevys etc. Old is good! Give me a DB5 or an E-Type over anything else on the road today!

That's a beauty. Age doesn't matter. Some cars are classics the day they roll off the line. If you ever sell that Saab, you'll kick yourself later. Take it from a guy with a sore butt. I've had a few cars that I wish I had kept.
