    Stand up and be counted....

    Hi all,

    This is a thread dedicated to all classic cars. Be it pre-war, post-war, 50s, 60s, 70s, old school, American, German, Japanese...Hotrods...you name it.

    Lets consider this the official unofficial Classic Car section (now in the form of a thread).

    We need to keep this thread going so we can warrant our own section (NOTE: FEEDBACK SECTION- regarding setting up a classic car section).

    But for this to work we need to keep posting pics of our favorite cars...discuss topics on our favorite cars...even talk things like tech and detailing. Anything goes kasi thread lang ito and there is no Classic car section. It may be difficult but we never stopped that from enjoying cars people tell us are so impractical...So let us show our support for classic wheels...

    I am standing up to be counted...Am a mustang freak here...

    what gets your motor going?

    ako din medyo eclectic ang taste ko in classic cars. btw - what is our definition of "classic"? for me it's anything 70's or older.

    the one thing my favorites have in common are they have some kind of legend or history attached to them:

    the Shelby GT500, 427 Cobra, and Daytona Coupe - the cars that put one of my favorite car guys on the map, and made American motorsports an international force

    the Ford GT - another absolutely dominant car in motorsports during its time

    the '65 Mustang and '55 Corvette - the beginnings of two legends

    Ferrari 250 GT California - fell in love with this car watching FB's Day Off. i also like the 250 GTO

    Aston Martin DB5 - the original Q mobile

    Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing - completely changed MB's image in the states and a car every kid lusted over

    *M54You got taste with your classics.

    My 10 would be the following:

    1)65 Mustang w/ the 289ci V8.
    2)67-69 Camaro any version would be good but prefer the 396ci or 302ci engine.
    3)68-72 AMX Javelin with a 390ci or 401ci engine.
    4)52 split window VW Beetle.
    5)57 Chevy with 350ci engine.
    6)69-71 Datsun 240Z.
    7)72 Chevy Camaro RS "split bumper".
    8)63 Corvette Coupe "split window" w/ 327ci V8.
    9)71 Lamborghini Miura Evolution V.
    10)72 Buick GSX Stage 1 with a 455ci V8.

    And more recent classics would be the 87 Buick GNX w/ a turbo 3.8L V6 and 245hp and 360lb-ft of torque, it did 0-60mph in under 5 seconds at a time when most cars could barely do the same in under 8 seconds. Another is the 89 BMW E30 M3 Sport Evolution, 238hp from a 2.5L four cylinder before variable valve timing was even used.
