Should I get a 60's-70's car as daily driver? in General Discussion Posted February 7, 2013 · Edited February 7, 2013 by RedVac (see edit history) I just like "older" cars because I don't much like where modern cars are headed. When I'm 40, $100,000 is going to get me something with a computer that drives itself, and a built-in foot massage machine and soda dispenser. Perhaps it's just me but I prefer driving when I'm in a car, but I know LOTS of people who said that given a choice, they'd choose personal teleportation over owning a car, hands down. I'd still choose a car. It's just such an expression of personality. I'm trying to explain to them how in 100 years this will be the coolest thing ever. Just like how in the early 1900's frontier days, the sidearm you chose was also an area of self expression, but that's completely phased out by now, along with horses and pocket watches. But I'm not one to get stuck in the past, I guess when the era of personal motor vehicles come to an end I won't go kicking and screaming, but nonetheless while I live in a society where a car is both a necessary expense and a work of art, I'll spend a bit extra on something with character.
