    What classics/antiques, etc. do you own?

    Many of us on this site own (or have owned) various interesting cars over the years. How about posting the vehicles you currently own (with a pic, if you can), as well as cars you've owned in the past?

    I'll start:

    Currently, I have a '76 Pontiac Trans-Am. I used to have the following:

    * 1964 Chevy Corvair
    * 1976 Trans-Am (different car)
    * 1980 Camaro Z28
    * 1969 VW fastback
    * 1973 VW Super Beetle
    * 1986 Camaro RS
    * 1978 Camaro LT
    * 1988 Lincoln Mark VII LSC

    1923 Ford Model T Touring Car. Hot rod, picture posted elsewhere.

    1963 Chevy Impala four-door hardtop. Not worth photographing, may never run again.

    If I keep my two current cars a few more years, they might qualify as classics:
    1989 Cadillac Fleetwood
    1990 Jaguar XJ6 Sovereign.

    The Jaguar has more chance of making it. Only has 48k miles on it and showroom fresh inside and out.

    Previous cars I wish I had kept:
    1965 Mustang
    1972 Pontiac LeMans
    1965 Ford Fairlane
    1957 Cadillac
    A man's greatest mistake is to think he is working for somebody else.

    I think you may be right about the Jag - definitely a keeper!

    One that might be considered "classic" at this late date if in pristine condition, several others, and a couple that I bought merely because they were cheap:

    1947 Ford V8 club coupe
    1950 Mercury convertible
    1951 Ford Victoria
    1957 MG A
    1959 Triumph TR-3A
    1957 Fiat 600
    1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spyder Normale
    1963 Fiat 600D
    1964 Dodge 330 sedan
    1971 Honda 600 coupe
    1977 Chevrolet Chevette Scooter
    1984 Ford Escort
    1989 Plymouth Horizon America
    1999 Saturn SL2
    2006 Toyota Prius

    Not included in above (except for the Dodge sedan): family cars, none considered "classic" by any stretch of the imagination.

    That 1950 Mercury convertible had hydraulic power windows and front seat adjustment, leather upholstery, and Borg-Warner overdrive.
