Down here it's considered or at least it WAS the suburbs, not sure what the boom is with Orange County is but it's here. Growing up I've only had "old" cars, really my first car was only 14 yrs old in '87 but the body style and technologies made it feel old.....not like the 2003 vs 2017 models of today. Anyhow everytime I bought another car it was older then the last (some hot rods, some stock), they were all my daily drivers at one point (my commute ranged from 5-30 miles one way). Sure I get hot and sweaty with the vinyl in the summer, have leaks and marginal defrost during the winter, but I can't stop it....it's in my blood, brain and soul. I love the smells, the sights and the quirks of them......it's like a time machine to me, in my minds eye I can picture a past I might be a part of. Right now I'm riding in a van pool to work and though the A/C is nice during the summer it's basically a soleless box that's saving me a little money. What it's making me do is want to drive around every weekend night (I hate driving during the day) and even some week nights (30+ mile cruise to nowhere). When I was driving farther in traffic everyday it did suck a little, having to leave earlier to warm the car up, to defrost or clean the windshield, to stay in the slower lanes...but it was fun. As I get older I notice it's harder to daily drive an old car while building another car, there's no room for regular maintenance (plus in my case regular maintenance of 3 new cars, 2 old cars plus 1 old car customer...the new cars are mom and g/f) and the fact I stay up way too late and get up way too early for my taste. I still drive in to work fairly often and I'm still driving them after work to get parts, store, etc......but I haven't hit the safety wall yet, drum brakes, no seat belts, single tail light, single wiper all still seem ok to me .
