Understanding cars

I am one of those people who will never understand a person’s fascination with cars. A good friend once asked me what would be my ideal car. My answer was something that can take me from Point A to Point B emitting the least amount of pollutants.

I highly doubt that’s a reply acceptable to car enthusiasts.

I’m talking about this now because while browsing Pinterest, I accidentally hit the search bar for cars and automobiles. Looking through various photos, I have proven yet again that I am an old soul.

This is a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. I often see this in movies, usually associated with the male lead, if not with the devilishly handsome antagonist. I tried to look at the details of this car online, but it just puzzled me further. All I can take away from the articles are the production numbers of models RS (64,842), SS (34,411) and Z28 (1,002).

I’m guessing the lower the production number, the rarer the car right? That’s a genius analysis right there. Kill me.

This is a 1949 Cadillac Series 62. It was among the pillarless hardtop coupes ever produced, according to Wikipedia. Hahaha. For me, that backseat has a lot of makeout potential. I think this car is so luxurious and has a good chic ring to it. I wouldn’t mind having this in my garage.

Last but not the least, this is a 1958 Triumph TR3A. This built for the sun two seater just screamed romance for me.

I wish I can know more about these cars because they’re just so pretty! And I mean it. I can actually see myself all decked out somewhere in the open field or by the boardwalk just looking so vintagey romantic sweet.

And I don’t even know how much these things are worth. Hahahaha.

Oh well. Just a random post I guess. That’s what you get from a random search on Pinterest!
