Classic American cars - old-fashioned or timeless?

The classic American cars of the 40s, 50s and 60s will always have a place in the hall of fame of car manufacturing, and a place of honor on any car exhibition or auto show.


Classic Cadillac


If analyzing the specific 40's style of the US-made classic vehicles, after world war II they became lower, longer and broader in look, as well as more massive and hefty. At those times American cars offered huge trunk sizes, width and length. In the 1940s a new car cost about $800 and a gallon of gas was about 18 cents - not a bad deal.

Nowadays these cars became classics and they continue to turn heads and to enchant car enthusiasts from all over the world. Because of their light weight and good steering feel, these classic beauties give the feeling of intimate connection with the car, not like with a modern auto it feels like you are simply telling the car what to do. In an old car you feel as if you are part of it. Moreover these vehicles turn in fast, and feel more responsive to your inputs, a lighter object changes direction easier, people who drive "enthusiastically", notice these characteristics. A car that's fun to drive feels like it's immediately responding to you and is communicating to you.


old-fashioned car


These old cars are so desirable nowadays because of the contrast they make with modern autos. The main reasons that explain this desirability are quite simple and evident:
- Older cars are simpler to work on
- Older cars are generally cool
- Lots of old cars have something unexplainable, something that cannot be proven on paper, they have character, they have a soul.

What's your opinion on this category of vehicles? Do you consider them old-fashioned or timeless?

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
