models, all changing every year, they made a profit. And, not only that . .
but one could sit on the porch and name the cars as they drove by. Unlike
today, when they all look the same . This is when a car was a car, so sit

1957 Ford Fairlane 500 - "Crusin' with the top down"
1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner with a retractable hardtop, 292Cid V8, and
automatic transmission that has 37k miles(believe to be actual but have no
proof). The first owner had the car for 44 years, and when purchased in
2001 it had been sitting in a barn since 1981. The car had a complete frame
on restoration in 2002. During the restoration the 292 V8 engine and
automatic transmission was rebuilt (around 2,500 miles ago). New parts
include brakes, master and wheel cylinders, and whitewall tires. The
retractable hard top makes this car really sweet and a little different.

Ferrari California Convertible Hard Top in Action - AMAZING!
OK, letting the top down in the 2010 Ferrari California and I think it's
one of the most amazing engineering feats on the car. Yes, the entire car
is excellent, but this has to be one of the quickest convertible hard tops
I've ever seen and the amazing thing is the trunk is still completely
