The neighbours truck. He had it out of the garage last weekend to move some furniture. That classic sounds great when it rips down the road, can hear it from blocks away.

I bet the doors just crash shut, and it probably has 4 on the column, and it still smells of that vintage of plastic seats.

I have had a few... "old" vehicles when they weren't THAT old, and some that weren't old, but are now, and despite not being sophisticated and filled with gadgets, they had a class all to themselves.

I actually think modern drivers are missing a lot by jumping into silent smooth forgiving vehicles. They should be able to hear the gears protest when badly selected, and hear the pain they are putting the engine through before they start using the latest wizzy wig cars that give you no feed back.

Even down to the tyres, the old cross ply were tricky buggers that you could push to their limits. and then slide deliberately round corners without having to yank the hand brake. Now drivers think they are invincible because the tyres grip so well...... until they give out..... and then you are in a whole load of pain.
