I don't know you that well so I'll be nice to you but I should skin you alive for such comments!
I think the 1970s was the best decade for cars. I like the vinyl roofs, opera windows, large velour & leather seats, thick cut pile shag carpeting, woodgrain instrument panels, large upright chrome grilles, long hoods and hood ornaments. The cars in the 1970s had lots of character and were very unique. Even the crappier cars of the 1970s had lots of character and were unique. I'll even take a Gremlin or Bobcat over a new VW
Passat or Toyota Matrix.
I think the ugliest cars are the ones of the last 4 years. The only cars to come out in this decade that are unique and have character are the retro cars (Thunderbird, S-Type, PT
Cruiser, Bettle). Ironic isn't it?
How can you not like these beauties?
Lincoln took high fashion to the open road. You can get your Lincoln Mark V with interiors designed buy the finest Italian designers such as Emilio Pucci, Hubert de Givenchy, Cartier as well as Bill Blass.
A genuine 3 arm Cartier timepiece that gives you the day and the date.
Say what you want, but I like the 1974-1978 Ford Mustang IIs
Just look at that attention to detail in terms of interior luxury on just a little compact car. You can't even get this much luxury in Audi, BMW or Cadillac.
Our fellow Airliners.net member Sccutler owns this beautiful 1976 Cadillac Eldorado. This one here show is the limited 200 model run of the Bicentennial Edition. This is How the the United States celebrated it's 200th birthday.
Here is the beautiful1975-1978 Mercury Colony Park stationwagon.
In the rear compartment, these wagons had a chess and checker table that folded up (made of metal with magnetic pieces) for the children to play. You see it offered games in which children used there brains and could learn. Today family vehicles (SUVs & minivans) come with DVD players to watch crap on TV
. Another example of the dumbing down of our society. These wagons were based off the Lincoln Contenintal and offered very a luxurious ride and the 460cu" V8
powerplant could still out tow most pickups, and SUVs on the road today. This was the ideal family vehicle.
American Motors was a company way ahead of it's time and it's too bad we lost them in 1987.
You could get a camper package with your Gremlin, Hornet, Pacer or Matador.
One thing I miss the most about 1970s cars were those beautiful plaid seats!
You have to be a very sterile and uptight individual to not appreciate these beauties.
