    "Your Favorite Car Of Your Birth Year"

    The O.C. Age Poll thread revealed some interesting facts about the O.C. which shows a variety of different age groups in the O.C. with the majority being 47 and beyond. It got me thinking how interesting it would be for everyone to pick a favorite car from the year that they were born. It should get interesting of what cars are chosen, I just feel sorry for the people born in the eighties. Please list year make and model, and no cheating by picking a bad ass car from another year. And please pick a car that was available to the public in your year. No race cars, prototypes, concept cars or movie cars. And also please google a photo or video of said car, thanks.

    My birth year was 1961' and I choose the 1961' Chevrolet Corvette.

    1962 Corvette for me, not much different than what Dirtjunkie posted.

    Some great choices in here, 59' Ferrari GTO, 59' El Camino another one of my favorites and 60'-62' Vette and the early Jags were awesome. And Minitrails early oval window bug, great choice. What year MiniTrail? looks like a 1960'. I like the earlier ones in the late fifties with the port hole window.

    And Bob that Chrysler 300 pretty cool 413 wedge cross ram induction dual quads. I was up in Estes Park Co. about a month ago and saw an identical version of Christine from the movie. Painted axactly like it [completely restored] and the front plate said Christine. For all I know it could have been one of the cars used in the movie. I have photos of it in my cell phone but have no way of downloading them.

    Identical to this with a black Christine plate on the front https://www.google.com/search?q=chri...&bih=726&dpr=1

    If I was born in '63 the choice would've been easy -- the split rear window 'vette.

    Speaking of classic Jags... my dad had a 1952 XK120. Sold it when he got married and started a family. Replaced with a 3.8L sedan

    A few years ago I was doing a show in Christchurch NZ, and my runner took me out to the store in her car... it was one of these! It looked like the second picture... fookin immaculate!
    It's all Here. Now.

    I got a soft spot for the 59s having cut up a couple for field cars and frame buggies.

    We used to use the hoods to tow behind snowmobiles. Pile maybe 5 kids on it and go. That never ended well.
    Probably the source of a few things that hurt now

Whenever we came to visit, my dad and us kids always cruised around town in it. We thought we were so cool!
