THE VINTAGE CARS
Did you know that women love vintage cars as much as men do? Well, if you didn’t, now you do. Vintage automobiles are not that great as far as fuel efficiency is concerned, but most models I have picked largely combines aesthetics with performance. As a matter of fact, women don’t prefer ‘bigger, better’ and it is the reason why I have checked into smaller models. Small as they may be, they still make any woman look like one with style. The following are some of the models preferred to by most women.
1969-1973 TRIUMPH TR6
It is a lovely British automobile and the reason why girls would love it is because of its 6-cylinder engine. Moreover, it only takes 8.2 seconds to go from 0-60 mph. Triumph TR6 can reach a maximum speed of 120 mph. In addition, it has a power train of the; engine 2,498cc (2.5l) and a four – speed manual transmission. Its body slightly resembles is predecessor TR5.
1969 FIAT 500
Fiat 500 has been through a lot of changes in 1960s. To begin with, its featured chairs are made out of raffia makes is a beach car and thus giving one of its innovations. I decided to choose a classic model because women today prefer cars that are not only small but also practical. Keeping mind that Fiat 500 is not the powerful car in the world majorly because of its small size. This car can go up to 50 mph within the first minute. More to that, it has a 499 cc, 2-cylinder engine that makes it produce a decent 21.5bhp. Although it’s speed is not that impressive: 65 mph, it offers a 45 mpg fuel economy which is truly respectable for 1960s.
1960 MORRIS MINOR CONVERTIBLE
This is also a British brand automobile that debuted with its first cars back in 1948. These models were not only designed to be small but fuel-efficient vehicles as well especially because they were launched following World War II. Morris Minor was a limited edition having been made by only one thousand members. This one however comes with a 948cc engine. Its driving experience could somewhat get risky consequent to manufacturers not having focused on safety features. This therefore a downfall of choosing this model. Nowadays, drivers have the opportunity of equipping their cars with almost any supplementary feature, therefore making very old models turn into fully loaded automobiles.
Since these models would perfectly fit women, let us now have look at what would fit men. Before that however, remember that men love their cars and a truly masculine car can traditionally reach an amazing speed. However, not all men are fascinated by Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Maserati. Some prefer a classic side and this would only be accomplished by old vintage cars. The reason why they prefer these ones to newer models is because they remind them of their grandfathers and how they used to drive to baseball games.
1955-1963 MERCEDES-BENZ CLASS 300 SL GULLWING
This a classic sports car with a two doors coupe, which means that it will work perfectly by taking a girlfriend for a tour. This Mercedes-Benz has a 2996 cc engine which produces 212 hp. Moreover, this car has an interesting history. To begin with, it was launched in the United States of America. After being launched, it was predicted to be a racing car in streets and it later managed to become a real race car. Manufacturers performed some modifications for this to happen. This car won two racing competitions in the year 1952 and 24 hours of Le Mans and Eiferlennen.
1957 CADILLAC BROUGHAM
This is the best model ever produced by Cadillac manufacturers in 1950 s. This Cadillac model has a four doors hardtop and is considered as a super-luxury car. This car has a rear-wheel drive, automatic 4-speed gear box, petrol engine with displacement advertised power and a top speed of 121 mph. This car can accelerate from 0-60 mph within 11.3 seconds and has a fuel consumption and mileage of 24.3 l/100 km by estimate.
