This car is what Id consider aesthetically perfect. What are the mechanical specs?
I drove a 78 nova everyday in the summer for about 3 years I just sold it back in oct. and bought a 51 packard for my new summer driver.
My old daily... Currently doing time on the other side of the globe... Damn I miss tht thing!

forty nine, rain or shine
cars were made to be driven
Did you buy this packard local near Owosso?
I drive the F-1 every day. My newest cars are both 1948 models.
Another not-so custom, but in the 'getting there' phase, here's my '67 Newport (Custom). Usually my daily, except for the other day when my starter pulled a 'Chrysler' on me...
this is our club "TAXI"...we all pile in it and go eat....the little six pulls a load of ass just fine
Pretty much my daily now....has been for a while.
Here's my daily. Rain or shine, heat or snow it's ready to go! 283 Power Pack, Powerglide and crackly AM radio...that's it. Not too pretty, but it's mine!
daily driver status gets split between my newer toys....i know they arent HAMB material but i still want to show them off
I do. either my 60 f00 or in crappy weather the 62 Fairlane
drive the 55 Belair rain or shine (50+ miles roundtrip). weather permits the 29 roadster. sold the modern POS about 5 years ago.
Up until about 2 weeks ago,my GM Holden Monaro. Stupidest thing i have done selling that car.
I drove a 1957 ford to high school up in Mackinaw City, MICH. I drove it for atleast 3 years straight rain/snow/whatever because it was my only vehicle I had. This was during the years 1995-1998. It was fun to do donuts in!
I used to drive my '29 desoto daily, but eventually decided I needed a truck
this is my every day ride,,,rain or shine..
cool cars guys
'63 Chevy II: V6, 700R4, 20 miles each way, Monday thru Friday.
Been driving this everyday for three months now...and plan to continue
My daily driven! -50 Chevy Fleetline Customized & newer driveline, but still a inline 6. Used it also at new years time in -35*F, snow & rain and shine!
My daily,the "Kripple Kart",
tho' we are looking at a '59 Apache 'burb as a beater also
this is currently my daily. getting in and out of the work multistory carpark can be fun with a LHD car, but apart from that its just like any other car to drive.
You can do that in California.. little harder to do here in the Northwest. Especially when it snows.
Sweet shoebox! Love it!
You knockin' heaters and wipers? Hmmm... Interesting point of view.
search true daily driver pics . tons of pic there
Now this I respect.. may not want to do the same... but I do respect it. I guess when I was in my late teens and early 20's I used to drive heaterless and had no problem with it. Of course I was young and could handle it.. the older I get the more I like my creature comforts. Dang.. I must be getting old.. didn't think it would ever matter. That being said.. after the next project (my '49) I do want to make a Ford Shoebox daily. No reason I can't slip in some of the comforts without out being over the top. Is "ac" over the top?
I would love to. And as soon as my current daily (98 Regal) craps out I would like to find an old truck with A/C (I am in Phoenix) to drive daily. The A/C thing is the only reason I don't drive an old car daily.......That and the fact cars seem to get stolen out of the parking lot at work.
