Since I am new here I decided to start off by showing one of my old classics that i had to sell recently, to start a new business. this is my 51 Chevy Bel Air. Does anyone have a classic they regretted selling.

All of them.

On the other hand, you can't keep, store and drive them all.

I am torn as to which one hindsight leads to to think would have been to most fun to have kept.

I am thinking about making a 1959 Chevy Impala as the next ride. I could never really find anything wrong with that car, other then making it a little lower

The 59 Impala has the coolest tail fins.

I am leaning towards a 64 full size GM 2 door. Probably a Pontiac. The Chevys seem to have gotten more expensive for the same chassis. A 455 with multiport injection is something I always wanted to build. But, you never know what opportunity will drop in your lap. Heck, a 74 Grandville convertible would be the perfect long range cruise for Ohana and Hula Hop.

It was an "old man's car" but I sure do miss Monty. Cream exterior, silver-blue interior, 2-speed auto, 1-speed wipers, "armstrong steering" and enough room for 8 people...1962 Mercury Monterey...bought 2000, sold after brakes failed and I lost confidence, 2008.

I don't have any photos, but I had a 51 plymouth cranbrook coupe, my first car, that I had to
sell when I moved out to Cali.

We went with the 4 door Bel Air. If I had the money I would find a wagon also.
