Classic Cars & Dreams
I am a dreamer in case you did not know already and one of my dreams is to own a vintage car. I know they are not practical and unless you can fix them yourself can cost the earth to fix and my brother in law (who is a mechanic) has strictly told me I would not be able to take them to him as “It’s a specialist thing, difficult to get the parts you see!” But still I dream on…
I am no slave to a particular era and can be quite random with what I like, but then hey maybe a classic car to suit every fashionista mood is what is needed.
I have always loved the Jaguar XJS I know it probably not the first car that springs to mind when you think of classic cars but there is something about this car that every time I see one I can see myself actually owning it.
The VW Porsche Karmann Ghia is just gorgeous those curves and it’s aerodynamic sleekness its just like a goddess.
With the Alpha Romeo Tipo again I love the sleekness but also those iconic bubble lights - OMG! I can hear Jeremy Clarkson ripping it out of me already!
1957 Cadillac - el dorado for those mad men days!
Well Why not because you never know when you might want a trip in a Lamborghini Countach for that back to the future moment in your life.
This is the car we had at our wedding a 1952 Whitley. I got married in a vintage 1950’s dress so it would have been rude not to.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not claiming to be a classic car expert, but just love the way they look and sound, and I’m sure they would be fun to drive. After learning to drive only a couple of years ago my passion for cars has grown even stronger. I don’t know what it is about modern cars that just seem to miss the magic. Yes some try to recreate the classics and bring them into the 21st Century but some how they just don’t come up to scratch. What is it about these cars that have such character, faces and personalities?

They just don’t make cars like they used to, I blame machines and technology that take out the craftsmanship of making something by hand and having an ergonomic feel to things, a machine just can’t add the love & passion a person puts into something that has been hand crafted and designed.
One day I will own my very on little vintage car, even if only for Sunday’s!
