i actually did like the Gremlin. my grandmother had one. after a while they kind of grew on you!

the Tucker was a cool car for it's time and really not a bad looking car.

I misunderstood, but Ford is one of the very, very few car companies that is still in existence in its original form. It is the only American car company that old.

Have you ever driven a Model T? At 45 MPH it feels like you are going the speed of sound. And then there is the no brakes thing. That is what made driving a challenge my friend! The Model T was indeed a great car. My best friend has a 1925 T Opera Coupe and we take it out all the time (its his favorite car to drive to the range). The thing is just a gas to drive.

Trez, i liked the IH Scout of the late 70's and early 80's. they were pretty cool. one of the guys i went to high school would drive his dad's Scout to school. believe it or not, it got almost as much attention as the new Camaros or Mustangs did.

I learned how to drive in a 1964 IH crew cab pickup truck, so yes I have. My father in law had an 80, I think it was a '63. I almost had it back in the family but lost it by a couple of days. I couldn't get a trailer to pick it up.

My buddy's dad had a sexy Nash. I think it was a Hollywood? Very rare car though. I got to drive it once, but only on their private roads (he owned a winery in Hollister at the time so they had plenty of private roads to drive on). Never got to open it up though.

What did they call those little things? There was one down the street from the gas station I worked at years and years ago that never moved. I always wanted that thing!
