History of Classic Cars

Party Buses and Classic Cars

I’m a big fan of classic cars. Since early childhood I’ve been fascinated by American muscle cars. My parents bought me those miniatures, as they wanted to encourage me to pursue my passion and turn it into a profession. Well, I still have a few of those miniature vehicles on my desk, but I’m far from being an expert. Nonetheless, I find pleasure in studying the history of classic cars, so I can say I know a thing or two about these pieces of art that didn’t have power assisted steering, ABS or EBD systems.

And now I have been seeing these party buses roam the streets at night, filled with happy patrons. I love it. I met the owner of a party bus company (http://www.edinapartybus.com), and he says business is great. He has a Mercedes Benz Sprinter that he started with, and now he’s looking to expand into a more classic bus. I’ll be rooting for him to succeed!

Changing gears (see how I did that), I plan to visit Cuba as soon as possible. This is high on my priority list, the main reason being that Havana is the paradise of classic vehicles. Can you imagine those Cubans didn’t have access to modern cars? They are still driving these antiques I love so much. There’s no wonder I’m so impatient to get to Havana. My dear readers, I’m going to fill this blog with great photos, so stay tuned and subscribe to my feed. If you also love classic cars, you’re going to enjoy a little bit of history in illustrations and short films. Maybe I’ll buy a drone to shoot aerial videos, too.

Limousines and Classic Cars

My daughter and I took a limo ride the other night for her birthday. Limousines are amazing in their luxury. We got talking about cars, and as much as I’m surprised at her interest, I love how my daughter is learning the history of classic cars. I’ve noticed her studying it on her laptop more than once, although apparently I’m the only one that does notice. She protects her screen privacy pretty well when my wife or her three brothers are around.

I know there’s no way to control the gender of an incoming child, but did we really have to have four kids and only one of them be a girl? I feel so bad for her. My wife does girl stuff with her all the time, since the boys and I are often working on one car or another in the garage or backyard.

I think that’s why she’s learning the history of classic cars. One of her brothers in particular is always trying to show off his knowledge of cars but he does not actually know as much as he thinks he does.

I’m pretty sure she’s planning on embarrassing him one day in front of his friends, and maybe even his girlfriend. I also think she wants to earn some respect in the family and start working on the cars with the boys.

I’m glad we took that ride in the limo (click here to see the company we chose). It gave her an appreciation of the royalty that classic cars can bring to any event.

The History Of Classic Cars Is Very Interesting To Me

There have been many great classic cars throughout history, and you might even be driving one of them. Whether you are or not, what would be your favorite classic car of all time? I would have to say that mine is the ’57 Chevy. Everyone knows the ’57 Chevy, as it’s one of the most iconic cars in American History. It wouldn’t be most people’s favorite pick though because there are classic sports cars that take precedence.

Think about the people that you know that are into cars. They are into the muscle cars, right? Many people would put the Ford Mustang at the top of the list, and then you have to start looking at the different models by year. Furthermore, you don’t have to just look at American cars. You can look at cars manufactured elsewhere, too.

It all started right before the turn of the 20th century, and of course everyone knows the name Henry Ford. Yet he didn’t make the first automobile. The first automobile as made in Germany. While there are people that collect the early cars, many people fast forward several decades to when those muscle cars were being built. Anything made in the 1960’s or the 1970’s is considered to be one of the best cars ever made.

Hello and Welcome!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by my blog about classic cars! My name is Jim, and Classic Cars have always been a big interest of mine. The evolution of cars from the very beginning to newer models shows just how innovative people can be when creating something. When you look at a classic car, you see a different body style, motor, suspension, transmission, and features then you do with cars now. No matter the year of the car, I can always appreciate the beauty of a car. The curves in the body, the amount of power it has, and the features play a major role in what makes a car great for me. Many people assume that classic cars cannot compete with newer models since newer models have the most advanced options, but classic cars were at one point the newest model. There’s something to appreciate about being the best of your kind, whether it’s 2016 or 1975. Even if the newer models have much more features than the older cars, older cars have more character than the newer vehicles. Not to mention, classic cars are a lot harder to find in good condition than a car that’s only two years old is. When you find one of the classic gems in good condition, it can feel like you’ve struck gold. Most people don’t have that type of excitement when they purchase a car from a dealership.

When you want to find information on the history of classic cars, where do you look? I know that there are a lot of great websites out there that have a wealth of information, but I am hoping to dig in a little bit deeper so that I can get some real insight from actual car enthusiasts.

I have thought about heading to some of the local classic car nights that they have around my area to talk with some of the drivers, and even the people who like to visit them. I know that this can be a nice way to learn about why people love classic cars, the history of muscle cars, why they like to visit the car shows and even what their first vehicle was or a particular dream vehicle is that they aspire to own one day.

Is there a website that lists some of the different car museums that are open today that I may be able to visit to gather even more information? I would like to have several valuable resources that I can tap into that will give me a solid background that is well worth putting everything together for my writing work.
