Wow, I'm so glad we could share our cars with each other.
DKB, the Skylark, what a beauty. That's just my speed!

Again, do not feel too sorry for me, I have this waiting in the garage. I haven't driven it much so I haven't become attached to it even though we've owned it for about 6 years. I worked on it up until my pregnant belly got too big and was in the way. I have new interior waiting to be installed then I can roll!

Also, notice no one is lamenting about their lost Toyota Camry or Honda Accord. Long live American Muscle!

Not quite. Two of my convertibles were 1960's British sports cars.

You did say they were expensive to keep and unreliable... we just didn't understand the order of magnitude.

Well, Cara, some times there are other ways.........

The green '57 Pontiac wagon is ours towing (well, camped at the moment) with our '51 Flying Cloud. We will now tow our '60 Tradewind with it.

The ligher green '54 Ford wagon is our friends who just bought a '59 Tradewind they will be towing with it.

The other picture with the red with white stripes '70 Chevelle (second car from the left - in front of our '51 Flying Cloud) is our other car. We had other 70's in the past but our favorite was one we bought slightly used and sold ten years later and regetted it ever since - mostly my wife. So in 2006 we bought this one and finished the restoration. Like your convert, we hardly drive this one as the wagon is the "go to" car almost all the time. We have not yet come to the point where we will sell the Chevelle, but like the rest of you, we keep thinking it needs to be driven. It gets a few hundred miles a year versus the wagon which gets several thousand. But, in today's world, once gone it will be very hard to come up with a replacement should we decide to do that later on, so we will hold on to it for while yet and think about what to do. We love our Airstream(s), but the last thing to go will be the wagon and at that, it will be part of our estate left to a young man who has been a part of the car since we acquired it over 30 years ago.

Your Camaro helps fill the void and they are gorgeous cars as well. You are very fortunate.

Today is another sad day. The car I sold ('72 Cutlass Conv.) and my reason for starting this thread, showed up on Craigslist yesterday.
They painted it, removed the wheels....and then wrecked it.
I cried a little.

Must See!! 1972 cutlass supreme original 442 convertible

Buy it back cheap. Is it really worth what they are asking with a couple of thousands worth of body work, wrong wheels and maybe a bad paint job?

Get it back! Years ago I sold my first Mustang, because it just didn't fit into my life at the time, but I never quit missing it. It wasn't a popular model, and I imagined it chopped up for parts, sitting in a junkyard somewhere. 12 years after I sold it, I hunted it down and bought it back, not running but still in pretty good condition, considering. It has been in my garage for 7 years now, and I'm just getting to work on it. Every time I walk out and see it in the garage, I feel absolute love for it, and know I'm so lucky I got it back. I never should have let it go in the first place.

Go get your baby back!
