Thanks Lieven for sharing.

I have to take in small doses. Cars there that I have owned, cars there I wish I had owned. Cars there that makes me wish I had won the lottery. Give me each one. Give me years and the resources to complete or preserve as is.

WOW!! Feast for my eyes, many love to have in their prime. Some that stood out for me.
Fastback Mustang 2+2 with a stick and a hitch ball of all things. Owned a similar MGB only older, chick magnet. Always wanted the Sunbeam.
The convertible Corvairs are cool, owned one of those also.
Thanks for sharing.

Wow, talk about deja vu! 1958 Studebaker President, the equivalent of the Cadillac in Studebaker terms. My father had one, don't remember the exact year, but this one looks a lot like it. We'd just moved to Prince George, a rural part just outside Hopewell, Virginia. I hadn't started school yet. (Then, we started school when you were 6 years old for 1st grade. There was no Kindergartern, nor pre-school.) We were living in temporary quarters at Fort Lee, before my father's mobile home, a single wide trailer made its way from Kingston, New York to a trailer court across Prince George School.

The car caught fire under the hood when my dad pulled up to the quarters. Base fire department put it out. It was sent for repair, but seems the mechanics couldn't get it to run right, so my dad bought a brand new, 1960 Dodge Lancer 2 door. It had a pushbutton automatic transmission.

The Studebaker was a light color with black trim. I think it was a light yellow, hard to remember because I was so young, and any photos we had were in black and white.

I specifically remember the speedometer. It had a rotating drum with the speed numbers on it instead of a dial that moved like in most cars.

Nowadays it looks spartan in comparison.
