I was going to answer, no, not really, Joop. But then the other five brain cells I
am fortunate to have then decided to fire up and with that I had an answer.
Now I've forgotten what the answer was, no wait a minute, here it comes back again.

It's cars of the 1930's and 1940's that I enjoy the most.
Its because it was cars from this era that were available to us young guys reaching our teens in the 1960's.
The cars were still in great condition many we bought were still in regular family use and were generaly well maintained.

I still own a 1939 Oldsmobile 60 Sedan just to keep it still going.

Boil all of that down and what you have is nostalgia.
