Design: Vintage Cars

cars20

Vintage cars have always been one of our big obsessions. Jonathan was raised around vintage muscle cars, and I spent a ton of time on the West Coast where these cars are everywhere. If there's a vintage car show, we're going to stop and check out the cars. If we see one on the road, the person who isn't driving is taking a picture of it. Yep, we're crazy like that. While we love all vintage cars (and currently own a 1972 VW Super Beetle), we have a pretty big soft spot for American cars from the 50s, 60s and 70s. For us, those decades were the heyday for American cars and a time when everyone was hitting the highways with their families to take in the sights. When we see these cars, we think of diners, vintage hotels/motels, campers and national landmarks. Do they conjure up those images for you as well? We want to start singing, "See the USA in your Chevrolet!" Life seemed so much more simple back then, didn't it?

The incredible colors and design details also make our hearts skip a beat. In our opinion, they just don't make cars like this anymore, and we'd much rather have one of these babies than any 2013 car or truck on the road. Better yet, we'd like one of each of them.

Do you own a vintage car? Which of these is your favorite?
