    Does anyone have a husband who loves old cars....Specifically Model T's ??? One must have a hobby as well when he goes to the garage! Love to talk to you about our common ground...Joyce

    My husband has a 1953 Ford built on a 1979 Ford Bronco 4 x 4 chassis. He tinkers in the shop on a lot of things not so much cars or trucks. He built cabinets and shelves for my sewing room as well as my cutting table.

    My husband was a lover of old cars I still have his 1965 Chevelle convertable two gas pumps etc all of it is up for sale. Every time the car needs something done I have to find someone to work on it (I finaly found a local garage that loves old cars).

    My sweetheart doesn't have a model T exactly, he has a T-bucket, as well as a 63' spilt rear window Corvette, a 95' Corvette, and a 1950 somethng Nomad, the rare one....He needs more 'tinkering ' time.

    hubby has a 65 corvette sting ray, I have a 67 pontiac firebird 400 convertible (my avatar) and a 57 Metropolitan. We also have 3 more Metropolitans which are for sale.

    Son has a 58 pontiac chieftain, 70 buick skylark, 84 oldsmobilie toronado and a "brand new" 58 Metropolitan convertible.

    we "like" our old cars.

    My hubby has a 60 VW Singlecab, 67 VW Fastback (in piece's in the backyard, that was suppose to be for our DD), VW Dune Buggie (not sure of the year). His dream is to get a Model T. And our DS has a VW Thing (again, not sure of the year) that he is restoring into a WWII vehicle, and is also in pieces in my backyard.

    The picture of the Singlecab is at a VW Carshow and they had some girls taking pictures with some of the cars. It's all logo'd up with my DH shop.

    My DH has a 71 Covette Stingray..he bought it as a graduation gift to himself in 72. It only has 57,000 original miles on it.
    I always wanted a yellow VW bug. One year for Christmas..there was one sitting in our driveway. Slowly I have been replacing things on it. One day she will be spanking new.

    Hubby has a 69 red Corvette Stingray, two topper, . It just sits in the garage all the time. He keeps saying he will sell it for the right price, but he doesn't advertise it for sell,, and I don't think he knows what he thinks is the riiht price,LOL Both of us are getting too old, too fat, and too stiff to get in and out of it.LOL

    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.

    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.

    We have a bright YELLOW 57' Chevy 2dr hardtop, I think he likes to stare at it!! Its his dream car, think if it were up to him he would own every model of Chevy from 1955 to 1964!!
    We did have a 54' 2dr Chevy hardtop we rescued from a field, but gave it to our oldest son, he now has it running and is working on restoring.

    Billy- I just want to touch that car- the paint job is like glass!

    Everyone always compliments me on the paint job on the firebird- it shines!
