I have always loved cars, growing up in the 1960's in a family of car nuts. (Enthusiasts I guess, in today's proper terms)
A 30 plus year hiatus happened to me, (no idea how) working and raising a family.
I got the same car I had as a kid, standard steering,no A/C, role up windows and a V8 with loud mufflers. (Same as in my teens)
When I drive my car now, it takes me back to the perfect summer nights- payday-full tank of gas-windows down-radio loud-not a worry in the world.
It doesn't get any better than that and never will.
Every time I get behind the wheel it is a flashback to my youth that will never subside!
You gotta love it!
