Default what other old cars are in your garage?

I was wondering what other car interest the typical model A'r may have? Post interesting pitchers if you have any.
I hope this hasn't been done before, I couldn't find anything.
As for me, the model a was my 3rd of four cars.
I have had other old cars in the past, but sold for collage or just to pay bills or one reason or another. But now I have four and no more to be sold, I hope.
1972 Mercury cougar. A farther son project.
1966 Chevelle SS convertible. Belong to my wife's father
1930 model a fordor. My first model a
1931 AA truck Once you get one, you got to have more.

Sometimes luck has a lot to do with it. I've been lucky enough to find some very cheap cars, but also missed out on some very good deals because I didn't have the money.

Probably one of my best deals was in 1974 when I bought a very nice 1964 Corvair convertible for only $10 because the guy heard Ralph Nader say they were dangerous. Of course Ralph didn't have a clue and never drove or even rode in a Corvair.

I'm pretty fickle. I enjoy finding them, restoring (or hot rodding) them, driving them. Then I lust for another project, and not being a rich guy, I have to sell one to start the process again. Catch and release

Currently I have this MGB that I put a 3.5 Rover aluminum V8 in along with a WC Camaro V8 T5.







...and this '69 Mercedes W114 250. All original including paint. Like a 1 year old used car...

The 61-63s were not great handlers...especially with the front tires over inflated by owners, gas stations, and even Chevy dealers. 15F/26R just didn't seem right to most people. This plus the lack of a front sway bar and no device to keep the inside rear wheel from tucking in a corner, produced a one car accident waiting to happen. This was partially fixed in 1964 with the addition of the front bar and the rear transverse spring. In 65 GM introduced a completely different suspension on the Corvair that made them handle even better than a Corvette (IMHO).

Nader did mention the Corvair in his book (along with many other examples of the auto industry's disregard for safety), but it was..."George Caramagna, the Chevrolet suspension mechanic (who, Nader learned, had fought management over omission of the vital anti-sway bar that they were forced to install in later models) was vital to this issue. The missing bar had caused many crashes and it was Caramagna who precipitated the whole controversy by staying his ground on the issue."

I have owned 2 1962's. Both fun cars (but I inflated the tires correctly and didn't auto cross them ). My latest was a 30,000 mile original. I painted it due to "garage rash", but it was original otherwise.

We also have our '56 Chevrolet Delray. I'd love to have more than two cars but money, space to store them, time to drive them, and a wife that wouldn't kill me in my sleep if I buy another stops me from having more. You folks have some really nice cars!

I have had 281 vehicles so far, and 100 of them have been motorcycles. I used to have a list of them on my web site, but recently erased everything and built a new site. Now I am down to my girlfriend's early 28 roadster pickup, the tudor I bought in 1975, a 74 MGBGT with a camero V6, a 79 MGB roadster with a supercharged engine, and an all original 82 Suzuki 650. Modern stuff includes a 97 Ranger, 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis, 2010 Honda Fit, and a 2006 Mazda Miata.

You can enjoy the hobby even if you don't own an old car. Ride with a buddy that does, hang out in the garages, go to the shows, whatever.

And, it only takes one to have fun

A little misleading. Some of the posters are listing cars they previously owned and no longer do. I know because I bought them from them ( 3 cars ) and they are still in my barn. Wayne

The only other old "thing" in my garage is ME!

And these won't fit in the garage anyway:
• 2004 Ford Explorer
• 2005 Linclon Aviator

Up till a couple months ago, I had:
• 1992 Ford Explorer

but it's been sold -- just to make more parking room in the driveway.

Yeah I'm not rich either. Of the three cars I posted, one is the Model T given to me by my father who got it from his father who actually USED the car in his painting business. Of course I did pour about $9K into the restoration....over time, back when I was single and making the "big bucks." The others came with time, got good deals and fixed them up as I went. Yeah you do need some level of money to devote to these cars but believe me I am not as rich as people think when they see my car collection. Now my friend with the 1929 Lincoln Sedan previously owned by Clara Ford, and his Lincoln Roadster....now there's some bucks!!

Sorry Dick, but I have to disagree with you about the Corvair handling. I own about 16 Corvairs, all between 1962 and 1965, and never had a handling problem with any of them. My main driver in the 60's was the first one I bought, a 1962 Corvair Spyder. I could do a 4 wheel drift on the cloverleaf and never had a hint of loss of control. It was a great car until some jerk ran into me and totaled it.

Over the years I have learned you shouldn't buy more cars than you can keep inside a garage and take care of the maintenance. Thieves, vandals, and nature aren't kind to them.

A '28 Nash sedan, purchased for $50 in 1970 when I was just 16 and dismantled around 35 years ago (a bad decision in retrospect!). Bits of it have followed me around the country since then, while other bits have remained at my parent's house. I now (hopefully!) have all of the bits under one roof at my home, for the first time since around 1980. Restoration starting date = ???

Unfortunately the scumbags are everywhere, and I've had the worst luck out in the country. At least in closely populated areas sometimes you have good neighbors that can watch out for your property.

I have a restored 1930 roadster pickup, 1937 Ford 4 door humpback sedan restored , and a 1930 chopped and channeled coupe that me and my father build in the 1970's sold it in 1988 and i bought it back in 2012. We did not chop it, it was an old drag car and parts when we got it. It was worth buying it just being able to take him for a ride again , he was 86 when i bought it back he will be 90 in April. Pics in my avitar

Not cars but at least they are part of the Ford Family.... The barn queen is a Late 1950 8N with all of the period correct accoutrements including two auxiliary transmissions (Howard Rotovator and Sherman Hi-Lo) and most of the original implements such as a Dearborn 2 bottom plow, Dearborn disk plow, Dearborn cordwood saw, Dearborn disk harrow and a Danuser grading blade. Restoring it was a blast!

I also have a Early 1948 and a 1963 Ford 4000 Row Crop awaiting restoration once I finish the inside of my shop.

I would have thought the mountain wagon would be the centrepiece. Anyways I think SSsssteamer wins this game hands down. Stanleys, Fords, and a cornbinder, what a great combination.
I don't see the Stanley with the California top listed?

I owned a 62 Lark with 13,000 miles on it. I felt so guilty every time I drove it that I had to sell it ...

That sure does pose a problem. When you have a car that nice and with such low mileage, what's a person to do? I love to see beautiful examples like your Lark.

Thanks, Tom.

Personally, I couldn't treat it like a museum piece. I have to drive my cars. I finally let the next owner worry about preserving it for someone else.

I was the second owner of this 60,000 mile Impala...



This 63 GT Hawk had just over 100,000 miles when I bought it. Relatively rare 4 speed car...

Look back at #40 and #125. Corvairs and Studebakers have always been my favorites, and Dick sure owned two of the cleanest, and best ones I've ever seen. Corvairs had the same full size bucket seats as used in the Impala, and they are a very comfortable car to ride in, but the rear seat is mostly for little kids.

When I was looking to buy my first antique car I looked at some beautiful Model A's for $200 to $800, but thought they were too common, and I wanted something more rare. So in 1974 I wound up buying a restored 1929 Chevy Coach for $2000. Drained my life savings for one car, but it was such a thrill to finally own an antique car. I know I have more projects than I can finish, and I wanted another Studebaker already done and ready to drive. I got lucky 3 years ago when I found this 1950 Champion just 5 miles away on Craigslist. My dad bought a new 1950 Champion, and that's the first car I can remember riding in.

What finally got me into buying a Model A was when I was at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds about 1990 and heard the most beautiful sound of a car chugging through the race track tunnel and up the incline. I turned around to see what was making such a beautiful sound, and found it was a Model A. That was it, I had to have one.

Here is the 1900 Mobile Steam Carriage that lives in the garage with the Vicky. It is almost small enough to strap on the back of Pat's Stanley Mountain Wagon. Like all steamers, its agile and a hoot to run.

Here are a couple we have now, MB 560 SL (My garage looks a lot like Todd's I think - with the A and the SL sharing space in the main garage), T speedster project and one now gone, our '39 Packard 120 sedan.

Lots of cool cars on this thread.

Added a better shot of the SL, this out on 20 in rural MA - hope to recreate this pic with the A next season!

Well I can't afford the kind of cars I'd like to own, so after retiring as a autobody repairman and painter I decided to build my own. I see one I like in a photo, I scale it out from the photo and build it. Mine are running, driving examples. The 1903 Curved Dash Olds is fun to drive. The 1897 Olds Trap is the only running copy in existance, my 1910 REO truck is powered by a 3 cylinder diesel, not original but fun. I have just purchased a Ford Ranger pickup, I'm using the chassis for a 1930 Miller Indy Ford racer replica. Not real you say? lol real enough for me.

And a 1955 CJ-5 of all things.....

Oh, and there is a 1959 MGA in there too..

He who dies with the most toys wins! I think you just won.

In the 70's I knew of a Duesenberg for $10,000 and at the time I thought that was way too much.
I've never heard of one for only $1500.

Neat cars and nice variety!

A lot of Model A owners look like they keep some more 'modern' iron in the fleet for when you need to burn off some aggression

My family has said 'What do we do with your stuff after you are dead?' I say 'I don't care. Set it out in the yard, sell it at auction, get what you can I just don't care anymore! I'm having fun with it while I'm still around you can't put a price on that.'

The alternative is sell all your stuff, park the money in a CD or whatever, and wait to die.

Naw,,,, that makes no sense

A lot of variety indeed!! My three favorite collector cars are all out of reach financially, so my little collection represents real world alternatives.

1914 Stutz Bearcat - Ford T speedster - close as I can get to my favorite all time car!
1929 Duesenberg Dissapearing top Murphy bodied roadster - 1930 A roadster, top stored away...
1959 MB 300 SL - 1989 MB 560 SL -Signal Red and Palomino, just like the 300 SL would be!

Didn't consciously try for this but I realized one day how these cars lined up...

I always think it is interesting to see what people have in their collections, so many great cars out there! Nice to see the contrasts and compliments in these various garages. This is a cool thread.

I had a 47 V8 deluxe coupe that we almost never used. It was a semi custom flat head. I'm really a model A guy. I have 6 As. 5 on the road, and 1 being rebuilt.

People are proud of their rides and deservedly so. I keep my garage door shut, nobody needs to know.

Tom I spent a day at Harrahs admiring his 1600 cars ,I think there was 7 Duesenbergs When I could have bought this Duesy for $1500 I just got married and my Honey wanted a stove and a bed ect: Well she got her way .But I can say the car might have been wore out by now but I still got my wife . I like the ones that I have . Another one I wanted was T Ford that was in the Ford garage in Sratford Ont When my cousin bought the garage .It had a door on the right side in the center .The driver had to crawl out across the car to get out .My Uncle drove it for some years after the war as it was hard to get tires for cars ,
