Ok all you gearheads, if you own a classic car let's hear about it. It is getting close to spring and all those cars should be getting ready to come out of their hiding places. What have you done over the winter? What still needs to be done? Are you looking for a classic to restore? Tell us all about it. We will all pull up to an old cars hood and tell our stories. I will add mine here.

I have a 1969 Lincoln Continental Mark III, and yes she is a BIG car. Drives like it is on air, smooth and powerful with a 460CID engine under her long hood. Leather interior, power everything, and power, Hoohoohoo more power!!! (like Tim Allen on Home Improvement). But right now she is sick, I am trying to track down a vacuum leak that is causing her to idle rough. I am hoping to get this all fixed soon since it is getting nice I and I do want to drive her. Still thinking of a name for her, oh well that is something about my car, now let's hear about yours.

Blessed Be.

Merry meet, merry part, merry meet again.

Do as ye will, but harm ye none.

How many years makes a classic again? unsure.gif 20? Not for another 1 1/2 - 2 years then, I'm afraid.

OR, as far I I've always heard (when I listened) was 20 years.

My Dodge 1950 fluid drive Wayfarer in Candy Apple Red is still a antique vehicle. And a bit more than 20 years.

Good car, can hardly hear the motor running on it. Yea yea, I know I can't hear but even those that can tell me that it's very quiet running. Very little vibrations in the frame when running is how I tell.

But I think 20 years is the rule.

How's Ang? Baby due when?

She's doing great. Preciously plump. biggrin.gif Her belly button pokes out when she takes deep breaths. May 6th is the due date. We've already started buying toys. biggrin.gif Can you guess the common theme? *cough*vroom*cough* cool.gif

As far as I know, it's 20 years for Classic, and 25 for Antique.

I always thought it was 50 for antique. Have several that "technically" qualify as classic, but they fit the category "junk" much better. 1976 Nova, 1980 Chevy stepside longbed, 1980 Pontiac Bonneville and a 1977 International Scout II.

I own a 1973 Karmen Ghai. It is the same model type as the one featured in "Kill Bill". It is exactly like the one featured in two tv commercials running right now. I go to the shows with a friend who owns a 77 vette and with another who owns a big ass Plymouth convertable from the mid sixties. We're all off to Carlysle, PA this April for the big car parts and etc... meet. Always fun.

Ok,
Here is an update on my Classic car,

I have just sold the Lincoln Mark III and bought a 1979 Ford Ranchero. I have also bought a 1973 Triumph GT6. I will post pictures later for all to see. Now that winter is coming, what are you planning restoration wise for your Classic?

I've got a 1968 VW Ghia parked in a garage gathering dust. I'm beginning to get a urge to get her running again.

I don't own any now, but in the past I used to play with hotrods. Perhaps some day I'll be able to build another. Here's a couple that I built...
