Your favourite retro car?

    Stanley Edwards 1967 Maserati Mistral.

    A little different to the cars you have owned thread. I just saw an old Porsche 1600, and felt compelled to photograph it. Other than a Maserati Mistral from 1967, I think if I had the time, the money and the will, I would nurture a Triumph TR4

    Here is the modest Porsche.

    I can't do pictures here at work, my my fav old car would be the fully loaded Holden HQ Premier, a larger aussie version of the Victor FD/FE.

    Actually most 60/70s cars from home I would like, hence I enjoyed my time in NZ (1999) cause those old cars are still running there on a daily basis :)

    Strangely enough when I was home last, 1999/2000, when I coudl afford the Premier, I didn;t but that but got a later Falcon instead. I know, turncoat!! LOL!! :)

    Nice car Poi E but too small for my liking, compared to Kingswoods

    If you like the regalia of the old Holden's then how about a Toyota Century? They made this shape until 2016...

    Oh yes, I did like the old big Toyotas. There used to be so much chrome on them!!! Well on all the Jap cars of that time

    They still make it with pretty much the same amount of chrome. And lovely wool seating, not awful leather. So refined.

    dessiato Looking for my shopping trolley

    On the other thread I suggested either a T series or a 900 cabrio. But one car I had and liked a lot, but it was stupid expensive for parts

    I'd also consider this

    Not one retro car posted so far. Lots of old cars, no retro ones.

    Here you go:

    Snorting around Spain in a brand-new 3-wheeler Morgan would be fun:

    I could wear a leather flying helmet and on seeing me the Spanish would say "¡Gilipollas!"

    I don't think the snorty fun would overcome the embarassment or the merry cries from the populace of 'Knobhead!'

    The retro car I will forever have a schoolboy dream for is a Lancia Delta Group A.

    It was what I once assumed I would own when I grew up.

    That one's a product of Alfaholics, who (for serious money) will do a restoration and put a 240bhp engine in it.

    Or, a Lancia 037 Group B, for the schoolboy who doesn't aspire to grow up at all.
