Being an old geezer all of my choices are from the mid 1930's to
the early 1950's. And so too boring to inflict on my fellow forum members in any detail.
The time has well passed for these cars to shine other than the top of the line marques - Cadillac, Packard etc. Too bad really, but its the same for real cars where the 50 year rule kicks in.
This theorizes that, except for expensive collectibles that change hands at auction in the millions of dollars, every day average cars have peak collector interest for only fifty years from their model year release date.
