67 Mustang and 57 Royal Enfield Crusader are my two classics. Of course the Crusader is in a bunch of boxes but I intend to.......

Re: Old Cars....Sailors Survey

My daily driver is 66 VW beetle, drag raced mustangs for many years. My boat is way cheaper!

3 cars hold a space in my heart... a 1960's Morris Minor that I dropped an Oxford 1750 engine into... a 1954 split screen VW Beetle and my favourite a 1962 Ford Capri... not the one in the pic.. mine was black and all the kids thought it was the Batmobile....

Re: Old Cars....Sailors Survey

Does a 1975 Dodge 1 ton cargo van count?

Re: Old Cars....Sailors Survey

Yes, got any pics? I have a custom Land Rover, some of the parts are from the sixties. Anything old and interesting certainly does count in my book.

I have a '59 MGA that I restored when I was living in Colombo and brought with me when I relocated to WA. I used it as my company car for several years whilst the Driver travelled around in the company supplied Nissan.

I also restored (over a period of years) a Morris 1000 convertible, an '49 Austin 12/4 ( which was a Christmas gift for the Beloved,) , an MG YT (which sadly I had to leave behind) a Riley RME which was owned by some friends who took it back to England and an assortment of others including a couple of Morris Travellers which (again sadly) we had to leave unfinished when we moved to Oz.

My MGA now spends most of its time in the garage but I drive it whenever I can. It's also great that the daughters are now asking to take it out.

Re: Old Cars....Sailors Survey

I was wondering about a '75 diesel rabbit? how do the logistics of this thing work out. IE cost to ship car from West Coast US port? It's not something I'd ever really consider, but my kids would be a bit older then and might be a keen family adventure.

A 57 MGA here. Was running three years ago when I put it into storage. Time to bring it back and restore it
