Show us your C&V car/truck

I know that there are probably some of you C&V folks that also have some pretty cool C&V cars/trucks. Show us what you got.

Here's my 68 F250 Ranger Camper Special...killing the earth and the whales 1 gallon at a time.

Love that truck.

I don't have a C&V auto, but given my druthers, I'd get a '95 Honda Odyssey, the 4cyl model with car-type doors.
Perfect combination of space and economy, rear air, roll-down windows, and huge cargo area with the seats moved/folded down.

Or get one that is post-2000. They have high compression, high performance V-6s that are crazy fast. I ran one up to 130mph and still had plenty left.

None of the ragtops have been driven in snow nor ice. The Mini only once on ice.

1996 Z3 1.8, about 43,000 miles, bought new.


1998 XK8, about 65,000 miles, bought in 1999, from a friend who was a financial executive at Ford.


2003 MINI Cooper S, about 60,000 miles, 6 speed, bought new.


1963 Airstream Safari, 23'. Just relocated after lying dormant for 6 years at a friend's farm, both tires buried and shot. New rubber on it now. I should have the funds this summer to polish her up and refurb the interior again. Yee haa, Marfa TX here we come!

My first attempt at hot rod building. Paid $400 for a total rusted 1953 ford f-100. I did everything myself in my garage. 6" top chop and many many other mods.

This could get interesting. I've been keeping an eye out for an old International pickup for the last 2-3 months.

'79 Mustang Cobra. Factory 2.3Turbo car. Sold off all my 2.3Turbo stuff, and it's getting a 302 T5/3:73 rear combo. Black interior.



It has made it into the driveway since the photo was taken.

Awesome job on that 914/6 - It's stunning! I also like the 2.3 Mustang! My friend has a 2.3 Cobra and it prompted me to buy a 1984 SVO brand new.

Here's my work in progress..

When I was 18 we scored a complete and original '66 stepside shortbox International pickup from the original owner who bought it for his ranch. Came with all paperwork, including the order form he filled out in '66. Really wish I still had that thing. Big 6 cylinder, granny low four speed, 4:11 locking rear. Top speed of about 63mph, but it could tow your house, and the neighbors, down the block with out much effort.

Do airplanes count?

I updated a fifty year old Cessna 172 doing all the work myself with supervision by my airframe and powerplant mechanic who has inspection authorization.

1969 Lotus Elan

I've owned since 1988. It's mostly stock, though not a stock color, it's close to Mrs. Peel's. It doesn't get out too much any more as driving in the Bay Area, even the outlying countryside, is more of a headache. Much better that I spend my time and money on bikes!

Thanks. It really is a "fingertip" car. If you're forcing anything it just ain't right. WHEN all is correct there is nothing like the feel of these cars, a real joy to drive.

John E. with wife, Patricia E., at a Wavecrest meet. This annual event in our town usually draws about 300 wooden-bodied cars from as far away as the Pacific Northwest and even the midwest. Appropriately shot in black and white by a coworker. I always enjoy riding the 1959 Capo to the meet, even though it is a bit newer than most of the cars, which date from the early 1900s into the very early 1950s.

Our own cars are approaching C&V status. Elder son's 2002 Audi A4 shown during our timing belt and water pump job four years ago. I drive a 1996 A4 (first year they were sold in the US), which is coming up on 20 years, which has been my default car retention goal in the past, but at this point I want to keep this one well past the 25-year mark.

Had a 71 Datsun 521 when we first moved out to Oregon three years ago. Drove it around for awhile and traded it straight up for a 99' Land Rover Discovery. Fun truck but just idling I could watch the gas needle go down. Now I drive a frumpy 04 CRV.

Oddjob2.

That's been my mental health car for the last 30 years. Origianlly a 307 V8 with Turbo 350 transmission. My Malibu was built in Oshawa Ontario one of less than 10,000 built for sale that year in Canada. Total accummulated mileage 388,000 miles.

My Malibu now has a built 350 V8 mated to its original rebuilt tansmission. The 350 V8 came out of a 72 Impala also built in Oshawa Ontario, Canada.
My Malibi was shipped to Winnipeg, Manitoba for sale new on the famous corner of Portage and Main in downtown Winnipeg. The paint colour is called Golden Brown with the Light Covert cloth and vinyl bench seat interior.

I also have its sister car a 72 Chevelle SS 402 V8 Muncie M2o four speed manual transmission built three weeks after the Malibu from the Oshawa plant as well.
