I had a Crosley wagon once upon a time. It came with a house I purchased. I never had the interest to restore it. Sold it for 700 as is. It had a propeller on the fron like the one on top of the home page of this site:

Other cars I'd love to own to drive around my town:

Zastava 1300

Subaru 360

Id really love another Corvair. But Id lose the flat 6 and install like a Twin Turbo Subaru.

Some of the front end of the Zastava looks like the Corvair.

Corvairs are on my wish list :D Wouldn't mind a Zastava ;)

Back in the early eighties I bought a 1958 Renault La Dauphine for $150.00. I towed it home and got it running over the next couple of months. Did I mention the cheesey composite cardboard timing gear set? The only thing the engine had enough power to do is to rip the teeth right off of it if you tacked it out and side stepped the clutch...lol. As slow and nimble as the car was it was still fun to drive. It was like driving a riding mower on the highway. Yes the acceleration was that slow.

All cars are fun to drive. I learned to drive in a 53 olds 4 door tank :lol:

tacked it out and side stepped the clutch...lol.
:lol: I had a 57 4 door ford, 3 speed on the column that I used to do that with. We dubbed that "popping the clutch" I think I may have replaced a clutch plate or two :lol:

Nostalgia! :DB:

I want one of these also, Nash Metropolitan:

1957 Ford. A car made in the time of massive fins, and enough chrome to be seen from space.. A Renault Dauphine would be cool. I still see them go up for sale for not too much on Craigslist on occasion. I would still loooooooooooooooooooooove a Tatra~! (Can you tell that I am a rear engine fan??)

I remember as a youngster, my dad had a 2-door black corvair with a red interior. I was shocked to learn it had a rear engine but you had to love the three carbs. :D
