    My sweetie husband gave me my "55 Chevy as a birthday gift in 1982. I love it but don't use it enough to keep the battery charged. My 4 sons all want it. Hubby has old motorcycles with sidecars, (I bought one of them for him)now those are fun to toodle around the neighborhood in. We're getting old too, so the sidecars keep us rideing without falling over.

    My boyfriend is a mechanic, and he restores them for his boss. His boss has a 1908 Brush and a 1908 Buick, and he just bought a Model T.
    We went to a club meetingfor the Model T's and of course now, BF wants one of his own.

    My husband has a 71 Nova that he is converting into a drag car. (Of course, he has been doing this for the entire 16 years I've know him!) His mother bought it new, then his sister drove it for years before he got it.

    My DH has a 1979 Olds Cutlass with a T-bar that keeps him busy. I have more sewing time when he is in the garage.

    Goodness, maybe we need to start an "old guys with old cars board" for our hubbies. Nope, then we'd have to share computer time or buy more computers!!LOL

    We have a 1973 Pontiac Grandville which was the pace car at Mt. Clemens Speedway when it was around. We also have an enduro car which we race. Boys and their toys!

    I'm the old car fan in our family, lol. I have a 1985 Dodge Omni GLH Turbo - my old autocross car, and a 1985 Audi Quattro Coupe that a friend gave me when he moved to California - it had been stripped down for rallying. I also hope to get an Alvis Grey Lady one day.
