packard_426_roadster_1927.jpgI am fun of collecting pictures of vintage cars. I find them artistic & beautiful. In the street where all cars seemed to be alike. Its great to drive these vintage cars to be different from all the rest. Its classic look would sure catch the eyes of every passerby. In fact my Dad own a vintage mustang car & each time I drive it along our neighborhood someone would always say that the car is nice! Well, that is why I want to have a collection of vintage cars soon! Hahaha….

 

My personal vintage car favorites are the 1929. Mercedes Benz SSK, 1928 Packard, 1937 Bugatti type 57, 1939 Rolls-Royce Wraith, 1941 Lincoln Continental, 1964 Aston Martin, 1967 Ferari, 1981 Datsun & the 1951 jaguar XI<150. I find all these cars really amazing with their classic design & style.

 

The 1929 Mercedes-Benz SSK is a two-seater convertible with a sexy front end & nicely contoured fenders. This car would surely take you miles & miles away while attaining the classic look that every car owner would want to have their ride. The Mercedes-Benz SSK is a roadster built by German automobile manufacturer Mercedes-Benz between 1928 and 1932. Its stands for Super Sport Kurz, with the last word being the German for “short”, a reference to the fact that the car was based on the earlier Mercedes-Benz S, but with nineteen inches chopped from the chassis to make the car lighter and more agile for racing. It was the last and greatest car designed for the company by the brilliant engineer Ferdinand Porsche, before he left to pursue the foundation of his own company.

 

The 1937 Bugatti type 57’s flawless appearance would make you the “apple of the eye” in the middle of the busy streets of the city. It was an entirely new design by Jean Bugatti, son of founder Ettore. Type 57s were built from 1934 through 1940, with a total of 710 examples produced. Most Type 57s used a twin-cam 3257 cc engine based on that of the Type 49 but heavily modified by Jean Bugatti. Unlike the chain-drive twin-cam engines of the Type 50 and 51, the 57’s engine used gears to transmit power from the crankshaft.

There were two basic variants of the Type 57 car: original Type 57 and lowered Type 57S. The Type 57 chassis and engine was revived in 1951 as the Bugatti Type 101 for a short production.

The 1941 Lincoln continental is what you need to have a first rate presidential ride. It is designed to have an elegant & classy appearance suitable for any corporate event. The vehicles was produced by the Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company, began for the 1939 model year. Over the next 63 years, despite these cars sharing under-pinnings with less expensive Ford automobiles, Continental was usually a distinguishly-styled, highly-equipped luxury car. In the Lincoln line, the Continental nameplate was commonly reserved for its flagship model. When the nameplate was moved to a smaller platform, the largest cars became the Lincoln Town Car. At the close of the 2002 model year, the Continental ended production, largely replaced by the Lincoln LS.

 

The Rolls-Royce Wraith was built by Rolls-Royce at their Derby factory from 1938 to 1939 and supplied to independent coachbuilders as a running chassis. This car exudes beauty and classic design that would surely capture the attention of every people in the road. It has an in-line six cylinder, overhead valve, 4257 cc engine which was based on that of the 25/30 but featured a cross-flow cylinder head. The four speed gearbox had synchromesh on second, third and fourth speeds and retained the traditional right hand change.

I hope someday I own these vintage cars! Hehhe well I would enjoy driving my old car for the meantime… hehehe
