i think you need to start a vintage bicycle thread!
I'm gonna keep on the run... I'm gonna have me some fun if it costs me my very last dime.
If I wind up broke up, well, I'll always remember that I had a swingin' time

Sharp car, Tikiville! I like the look sans wheel covers. That's a '63, no? I'm learning a lot about the T-Birds since they share more than a few mechanical components with the Continentals.

Hey , Thanks!
I picked this up a cuple years ago ...it had the stock wheel set up on it with the ho hum hubcaps.
I thought Id go with a sportier look to it and leave the skirts off for while ..
Without a doubt the best riding car I've ever had and it blows away the previous 4 other old timers that I put the wallet too lol , factory power windows,brakes,steering,seat...amazing!

Just picked this up recently:

Image

It's a '62 Buick Skylark, considered a compact at the time. I've owned a variety of big cars in the past so I thought I'd try something somewhat smaller so I could actually drive it w/o going broke trying to keep it fed. It's pretty well equipped with power windows, a/c and a plush bucket seat interior so all the good stuff I like about 60's cars is there. The best part is the all alloy 215 V8 that GM later sold off to Rover...who went on to use up until very recently. Since the car has been more or less dormant for the past 18 years it'll need a fair amount of dialing-in before I begin driving it regularly.

DH's '72 Karmann Ghia. I know '72 is a little late, but the design is from the '50s, so I bootstrapped it into the era. 29K original miles, original Willow Green paint.
