    Nope. Never saw a 1944 model that I wanted to own, not that there was much to select from.

    Born in 56, but I would have been a 57 model (Sept birthday). I've had cars and trucks on both sides of either model year, but not a 56 nor a 57 with all these vehicles I've owned over the years. I guess if its meant to be, someday maybe, but I've quit looking. Gene

    Nope, never had a desire to own a Jeep or any other military vehicles! I did have a 39 Chevy 2 door which is the same vintage as my late sister, but no pictures.

    Thank you! I've put over 300,000 miles on it so far. I have driven it 120 days this year. It was my daily the first 11 years I owned it.

    Got any pictures? I'd love to see 'em. I had a '57 Coupe de Ville from 1984-1992, Dusty Rose Metallic with a white top. My favorite year Cadillac.

    I was born December 1st, ALMOST 1955. My '55 Chevy truck was one of the first built in 1955. This is as close as I'm ever going to get.

    It's no longer HAMB friendly but it was after I got done with the first go around with it. Purchased in 2011 and done the 1st time in 2015. A2982212-8A07-4AB1-AE27-EEED7659D263_1_105_c.jpeg CA9B52B1-A693-43B1-8190-A71540611737_1_105_c.jpeg

    1937 model, same as me only it can run as fast and as long as it could 82 years ago and even bump another 37 if it gets the chance; some thing it's human can only fantasize about. Deep snow 011.jpg

    I don't want anything my age, its prone to breakage, needs constant repairs, and spare parts are very limited. This is in addition to constant leaks.

    It's a Volvo TP21 radio/command car also known as a Sugga. They were a pre war Volvo taxi body mounted on a shortened Volvo TL22 6x6 truck, built to replace the Dodge carryall and command cars they used. I have sold this one and it's waiting shipment to New York

    Don't have any pics but I have owned a Chevy, and a Merc, and I think 3 fords that were built the same year as I was.

    The closest I ever got was two '49 Plymouths in HS, I'm a '50 model. I had a '41 Pontiac and a '46 Ford PU. I do like the '50 Fords, though.

    Nope. I’m not interested in cars from 2005. Everything after 1975 went to crap. Or most of it. But here’s my 53 [​IMG][​IMG]

    Still looking for that 1950 Chev but I need to finish and sell a project first so it can have an inside stall.
