OK, I'll play. Here are two groups of cars:

2. Cars I have owned as daily drivers, that I'd enjoy as toys today if I still had them.

I've owned lots of other things with engines and wheels that were totally forgettable, except my 2004 Volkswagen Touareg V-8 SUV, which is a mighty fine tow vehicle.

I love those old Imperials they were solid cars and superior to most Cadillacs of the time. I have also love the International travelall, they have so much glass/visibility. In my opinion those 1st generation toronados are undervalued and represent an excellent value and potential investment.

What a cool forum thread! Personally I've owned none, but once I get my license in January that will change shortly after! Hope to have a list as long as some of the above posters eventually!

Straight Shooter,

Thanks for the comments. I sold the Travelall just a few weeks ago but that truck was probably the most enjoyable old car I've ever had. It rode very nicely for a truck, the steering was surprisingly accurate, the brakes were terrific, gobs of low RPM torque, tons of room and that quirky style. You're right about visibility too as it's amazing how well you can see all around you. The Imperial was an incredible highway cruiser. Super smooth, effortless power, handled really well, powerful disc brakes, comfortable seats and leather and not a single shake or vibration even at 70 MPH. I drove the car 3.5 hours to Carlisle than back again later that same day with the top down and it was the most enjoyable, comfortable, non-fatiquing drive I ever took. As for the Toronado, I can't believe how undervalued these car are. I've always lusted over these cars and after selling the T'All, I seized my chance to get one. I'm anxious for it to arrive and really get into it.

Chris
