    I can't explain why, but I have always loved big cars from the 60's and 70's. The feeling of floating on a cushion of air? The style? I'm tall, perhaps it is the fact that there is an obscene amount of room in some of these cars? Room for 3 comfortably in the front seat alone? Throw in a drop top and it gets even better! What are some of your favorites from this era? Post some pics!

    That Impala is absolutely gorgeous. Very jealous!

    Those old Toronados sure had road presence.

    Not mine.... bummer. Actually, I think I'd like the Toronado or the Starfire more than the Impala.

    The engineers and designers at Oldsmobile called them "the Mafia, because they are all hood."

    Here is one I really like, the '66 Toronado as modified by Jay Leno and his gang.

    Bill Mitchell and friends did nice work. The 71-72's looked like Eldos. Remember this one, it has 500# T-tops too. Try finding rear glass to restore one....

    There's enough metal in this thread to stamp out a year's worth of KIA's.
