Hi Monkie,

I cannot understand at all why people invest thousands or even ten-thousands in old cars which will never match modern standards.

On the other hand these refurbished vehicles produce a strange mix of feelings when you see them at shows or exhibitions :)

They bring back lots of memories. In this spirit: May this old VW microbus live longer than me  ;)

These split screens fetch serious money when restored, Most usually get tricked up for the surfing fraternity

And then most of them get stolen for parts.

We here call them pretzel windows. Why? just why?

Driving a classic car is good fun.  Not only do you have some fantastic looking motors, but without all the modern day extras, you get a much more involved driving experience. 

I drove my first classic Mini many years ago and couldn't wipe the smile off my face.

Love seeing a restoration in progress.

My project will, one day, end up a shell ready for paint. That will be a few years away though - for now I'm just getting the driving experience and mechanicals back up to scratch.

I am geek.
