    Default Rides that make you smile

    Went into town today to run some errands. I saw a guy, late 60's early 70's, tooling
    down the road in an old Jag. He was smiling ear to ear. His smile couldn't have been
    any bigger. It made me smile looking at him, cause he looked like he was the
    happiest guy on earth.

    What car or truck makes you smile driving down the road?

    I don't have it anymore, but it was a Saab Sonett III.

    This isn't because of ego. Even for the sake of a neat gadget vehicle. Honestly....
    My new BMW 320i didn't make me smile like this.
    My perfectly kept 1970 Mustang fastback didn't either.
    Nor my 4x4 trucks. Or my diesel truck.
    I have to say I do smile with my present car. A 2014 Toyota Corolla. I'm playing around in the 40's for gas mileage (daily driving). Has an engine brake...the brakes should last a long long time. Smooth and comfortable as anyone could ask for. It is and will continue to save me money. I is a happy camper. Very happy camper.

    She's gone because I can't ride anymore, but she made me smile.

    There's a lady I see a couple of times a week driving the same route in Hunting Beach in her orange, spoiler configured 1969 Pontiac GTO "Judge". She appears reasonably content.

    My 2003 SVT Cobra Mustang makes me smile every time I drive it and you know what they say "if you don't look back at your car when you get out and walk away...you bought the wrong car"...

    When you mentioned 'no posts' -- I had a 1957 Olds Station Wagon that didnt have posts either and it was fast too. Mine was pink with black primer - some thought it looked like an old cow.

    It is still a scary thought as to how close we came to having Hillary Clinton as president of the USA.

    I don't think children should be separated from their parents when migrating to the USA. They may stay together in Mexico.

    It would be a very long list of classic cars. I always loved working on chevy motors but i appreciate all makes and models of cars from the 30's to the 70's. Ones that really make me smile are the ones that don't have a payment book too.

    I did have one of these as my first car but it certainly didn't look like this one and had a 6 banger under the hood. Sadly i never put it on the road but did drive it a few times on the back roads....Then i started dismantling it to restore it but it was a much bigger job than i could accomplish and afford so i parted it out. My brother did have a nice 69 with a 400 so i still have a soft spot for old F bodies.
