I'm 26 and refer to the younger folks as people who are five or more years younger than me, because I think that there are some rather big differences in the way that younger people are interested in cars. (Generalising here, of course!) Five years back, it was nice when I saw a classic car, but couldn't do much else with it. Like many of the "younger members" around here (approx. 15-20 years of age) world of cars was mainly the world of modern fast- and supercars, whereas my interests have swifted since then and I got more and more into classic cars - brands, models, background stories and faults of them as well as the design pleased me more and more, whereas cars like the Carrera GT or the Koenigsegg are still nice in a way, but the magic around them has faded for me and now pops up when I see the likes of a Series 1 E-Type or Mk II Jag, MGB, Bugatti Royale, Duesenberg, 57' Chevy Bel Air Coupe and so on instead.
Thanks for making me feel old. :p I'm 18 and absolutely love classics; currently dreaming of going to my wedding in a 1977-78 Aston Martin V8 Vantage, for example. I went through that tuner "let's put ho0ge wings on the back of our Civics" phase like bone said as well, and I still feel embarrassed by that. :cry:

Great pics, Overheat, and props for the Countach! :thumbsup:

here's a Lancia:

A Stratos in fact - not sure how much of it is genuine - but it's pretty nonetheless :)

You never learn out :lol:

Strange colour scheme on that Lancia, I always connected it to Alitalia (that white - green - red one) as the main sponsor in rallye trim.

An Austin Seven (c/w gf reflection) :)

I'm not entirely sure why there's a cooker in the background? :S

I know this isn't really a classic, but I have a bit of a soft spot for it:

Fordus Probus :)

Some lovely cars in the background of that one too :)

A mate of me once had that car (2.5l) - a nice ride, but rather expensive running costs made him sell it again after one year. I fear I don't see the special appeal in it, though.
