OLD ANTIQUE CARS
Just had to add a bit of info on these fantastic classic antique cars
because they are, in our opinion, FASCINATING to look at! We are not antique car collectors, but these photos were too exquisite to pass up.
You don't see these babies on the road much, but when you do they are sure to turn a head, and quick to remind us of our cruisin' days of
A couple of years ago, one of the national Model A Ford car clubs was
on a Fall tour, making its way through our hometown, and it was certainly a sight to see. Over
eighty, probably more, antique Model A cars lined up one after the other, some fitted with a rumble seat and upgraded
accessories, others of very moderate detail. Occasionally, a driver would sound his horn......Aaaaoooogah!
I remember my mom's first car, a 1956 Ford, mostly because of the
picture of the parents, and me, just a tot at the time, standing beside it,
and the many, many varied stories of where, when, and what that car
meant to our family's past. Now, some fifty plus years later, there are still
stories about the travels and happenings that occurred in that antique car of ours. With every antique or vintage car, just as with all the antiques we
admire and collect, comes a lifetime of history passed down from one generation to the next!
Antiques tell us what was culturally important at the time.
The appeal of the vintage cars of the 1950's ......grand, luxury, comfort, spacious,
and then there's the cars of the 1980-90's ...... small, conservative size and
features which emphasize economy and safety.
Did You Know...........the 1960 Cadillac had an in dash Television Option
and many Chrysler models of the same era offered an in dash Phonograph (record player) Option. That's an example of what makes
antiques and antique collecting so fun and INTERESTING! Just when
we think we are on the cutting edge of design and craftsmanship, we
look back decades or centuries and find the antiquities of the past far
surpass the current day in quality and ingenuity, often with a surprise of
humor and cleverness.
We got these antique car photos from a calendar which assigns credit to
"photographic illustrators", so we are unable to give photo credit for
these amazing vintage car photos, but gratefully acknowledge that they are sure to bring a smile and a warm heart to every antique car
collector and non-collector alike. Enjoy!
