My post from yesterday – Subjective Question: What’s the best car you’ve ever owned – yielded some absolutely wonderful stories about people and their cars. Your stories spoke of the type of car culture that I worry about losing given the current generation of kids and their preference for smartphones over a set of smart wheels.
Thanks so much for your responses.
I think it’d be great if some of you could share a bit more about your favourite car. I’d love to see some photos and read some of the stories in greater depth.
If you’ve only got old film-based photos, you can either scan them or take digital copies. You’ll be amazed at the reproductions you can get from a digital camera, or even just a phone, nowadays. This photo of my grandmother and my dad was taken with my SonyEricsson Xperia and is a carbon copy of the paper photo. You might even find it’s a good opportunity to digitise some of your paper-based pics.
I’m always interested to hear the virtues of cars I’d otherwise overlook. Being a habitual used car buyer, stories like these are always good fuel for a few hours searching the classifieds.
And some of the stories are great, too. I’m really hoping Jimmy has some pics of that old $100 Chevy Caprice on one of it’s 3 cross-continent road trips.
So, if you’ve got a mind for sharing, please get some pics organised and a few stories about your favourite. My email address hasn’t changed – swade99-at-gmaildotcom – so please send your stuff in and let’s share the love.
