Great American classic cars: Buick, Mercury, Ford, Rambler 1Rare Bugatti race cars, vintage Ferrari machines and best-of-show collectors’ cars are great for auto shows. And then there are sentimental favorites, the 1951 Buick your family owned when you were a youngster or the 1951 Chrysler K310 in the neighbors’ driveway?

Or how about a head-turning 1955 Nash Rambler cross country wagon or a 1958 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser?

Owning a Duesenberg you don’t drive is fine. But how about taking a Sunday afternoon cruise in 1951 Chrysler Thunderbolt?

  1. Great selection. Not a "common" design in the bunch. Perhaps Detroit–and the rest of the world–might step at least a small distance away from their homogeneous designs. You can't be better–if you're really just the same.

  2. James —

    I was right with you the entire way — until you cited the Riviera boattail. What? You've been working too hard, son.

    An insightful and inspiring list.
