Vintage vehicles including antique cars, classic cars, muscle cars, and collector cars.
Discontinued Cars That Are Worth the Most
You’re searching for a new model to buy — you narrow your search down to a select few motors that have caught your eye, they meet the specifications you’re looking for, they have powerful engines and fantastic handling — the reviews are superb. And then you find that they’ve been discontinued by their manufacturer, dubbing it a ‘zombie car’.
Vintage Muscle cars are Iconic!
I grew up watching Fast and Furious movies. Watching those beautiful and fast cars, made me fall in love. The first vintage car I saw was the 1970 Dodge Charger - which Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) had built with his father. With this, I was introduced to vintage muscle cars.
The Special Banana with a factory bench seat.
When I was 14 or so my parents drove out west to pick up a car my uncle had bought for my cousin who was about 6 months older than me. They had bought it through some family in Texas and my Dad was going to bring the car home to Mississippi for my uncle. My Dad was pulling a trailer behind his diesel ford to haul the car home on since when my uncle test drove it, he said it ran at very high rpm’s and was overheating. He bought it anyway despite these apparent flaws because the car honestly was kind of special. It was a 1956 Mustang Gt A-Code with a factory bench front seat (say that five times fast.) Springtime yellow was the color and the car looked and felt special to drive. I say that because while it was technically my cousin’s car, I have a surprising number of memories attached to it.
Family Stealth Fighter Convertible
The Year was 2012 and I needed a new car. Having recently sold my daily driver I had bought GMC Sonoma pick-up truck and I hated it. It rode like an ox cart and was incredibly tiny. Of course, I bought it because I thought I would like it but after only a few weeks driving it around I could not take it anymore. The truck was not new by any means, but it was incredibly low mileage and had been sitting in a barn for most of its life. Buying it felt like the deal of the century but considering how much driving I was doing at the time for work on not the smoothest roads in the world it was just not working out.
2013 was a difficult year for me and my family. We had moved back home after being away for work three years and I was kind of in between jobs. My Dad's cancer was also back, and he was looking ahead at another round of radiation treatments. All these afflictions were temporary, within a few weeks I had found work and after a year of treatments my Dad's cancer was in remission. But despite my families’ circumstances improving, we were still financially drained from the whole experience. To make ends meet I sold my car.
68 Shelby GT 350
Growing up, my family had a special connection with cars that extends even to today. As such I got to drive some amazing and strange vehicles during my youth. But the one that stands above the rest vehicles was my dad's 1968 Shelby Mustang GT 350.
In 1998 as the century was about to turn, I was enjoying the ultimate expression of freedom available to a member of my generation, having a car. Yes, I indeed come from a simpler time. I did not yet have a cell phone and my computer looked like a man in a space suit sitting on the floor of my room and desk. The Hewlett-Packard tower had 1.5 GB of storage and I could manage with my “highspeed connection to download four songs every night while I slept over a period of six hours. So yes, in my day the ultimate expression of who you were was the vehicle that you drove and well for me I was struggling to find something that fit me personally. I had been through a couple of vehicles, an old Chevrolet and then a Ford Ranger Splash but I was still not quite complacent. That all changed in May of that year.
The 80's and 90's were a time of excess and colorful marketing. Seven up was no exception and the soft drink company invented the mascot cool spot. A living representation of the red dot on the can there was a time where he was literally everywhere. Video games, commercials and bill boards he was as unescapable as the California raisins and the Noid. But one place you may not have expected to find him was in your sports car. Yet that is what almost happened in 1990.
Sticking it to manual transmission
Does anyone drive a stick shift anymore? I don’t. Haven’t since December 20, 1984. That was the day a chiropractor misread my X-rays and snapped my left knee back into place, thinking he was correcting a dislocation. It swelled up like a boiled ham and never went down. Turns out it was bone cancer, which is a story for another article. The point is, even after a leg-saving surgery months later, I could never physically use a car’s clutch pedal again.

3 Small Classic Cars That Helped To Put Europe on Wheels
This day had to come. Today is the day when I’m going to take some of my time to tell you about something I know a lot about — cars. And I’m going to mention some of the small vehicles that helped Europe to start moving after WWII.
Cars Ahead OF Their Time
When it comes to technology in cars, it seems somewhat futuristic. Think of the touch screen or some type of radar sensing equipment. Some of this technology seems new from the 90s into the 2000s. It really is nothing new. Some technology in cars today existed decades ago. Here are a few cars that had some technology that was ahead it its time.
