    Its , simple When the cars being manufactured today , are overpriced , expensive and flat out unreliable with in a year , its only logical to buy an older car or truck to fix up , and ride it until the wheels fall off.

      you could buy pretty much any non meme modern car, do the most basic level of maintenance (oil changes), and easily get 150-200 miles out of it. modern cars are WAY more reliable than older cars, you moron

        I had well over 400k on my 76 olds 88 before it rusted in half. The 350 rocket is a tank.

        That's a good one. Modern cars have far more features and shit that can break. Who cares if the engine lasts another 10,000k thanks to slightly improved material science when there are 100 gizmos that all rely on each other working that didn't exist before. I'll stick with my early 00s car that doesn't have that shit, thanks.

      I drive an older classic , because of the insurance rate and ease of repairs, modern cars are so bland unless your talking about Japanese sports cars.

    Seems right, though I would substitute the word classic for "older". At my college there are a few guys with 1980s Volvos and MR2s and 1970s Mercedes Benzs and VWs. When I was in high school, there were three kids who had Suzuki Samurais.

    Personally, I am looking for a 3rd or 4th Gen Caprice or an FR Bonneville right now (kind of would prefer the Bonneville, to be quite honest).

    That said, I want to get out of college and start working for a little bit first.

    It's because all new cars are the same since they all have to adhere to the same stringent over regulation.

      Affording a car is no longer relevant since ANYONE can walk into a dealership and finance $100k with 0 down.

    any 10-25+ year old car can be seen as a classic
    hell, many 90's JDM cars (and a couple '00s cars) are already classics
    most zoomers idolize cars from that era, not 60s boomermobiles

    Where's the study? This article is anecdotal. Besides "classic cars" includes early 2000s shitboxes. Getting a 2002 Trans Am and restoring it isn't the same as getting a 1970 Trans Am. The kid in the article may have a classic Mustang, but it sounds like his Gen X daddy helped him acquire it since he's into 20s Fords.

    The brocolli headed homosexuals by and large show little interest in cars and this article feels like a cope. Both their generation and mine (Millennial) have little interest in anything except numbers and few options due to previous generations buttfricking the market. Closest to a classic I can afford is a Dodge Ramcharger, for Christ's sake and I'm genuinely into classic cars. Props to the kid and anyone trying to keep classics on the road, but be real. Anecdotes are just that. Most people just want A fricking car that works and can get them to their shitty wageslave jobs.

      I went to a very wealthy college on a scholarship. I bought a 1969 Mercury Cyclone 390 4 speed for 4k my first semester. The blue paint was burned off, it was dented to shit, and every rubber bit on it was dry rotted. I loved that car, burned oil like nothing else but man did it bring a smile to my face.
      All of my classmates thought it was a massive pile of junk and my dormmates refused to drive in it with me because it was "unsafe". Only person that thought it was cool was a dude from the engineering department.
      Some b***h in an audi totaled it in the parking lot my last year. I still haven't gotten over it.

        >you will outsource all your manufacturing
        Meanwhile Biden is giving companies incentive to produce in the US.

        >you will let in millions of immigrants to drive down wages
        Not nearly that many, but legal immigrants still have to be paid legal wages.
        Undocumented immigration of the kind preferred by Republicans creates a grey area perfect for the dual ledgers they love to keep.
        Paying one wage on the books, while the undocumented laborer gets paid another wage in reality with the difference lining the pocket of the crooked managers.
        Provide legal status, and legal recourse. Then companies have no reason to prefer immigrants like they do now.

        >you will go to college for 6 years minimum for a decent job
        Tuition reimbursement programs are another thing this administration is serious about.

        >you will pay 50% of your income in taxes
        Not even income over the top bracket is taxed at that rate.
        But it should be. Right now they pay less than the average worker.
        Plus of course things like private healthcare are functionally a tax.
        When there should be Medicare for All.

            Bureaucratic overreach is endemic to liberalism and that overreach will inevitably become global without any counteracting force.

    I'd guess this is mostly because car prices went full moron and never really came back down thanks to inflation making money worthless. When I was a teen, cheap used japanese cars were available and most of the kids I knew had one. Didn't hurt that furiousgays franchise made the cars cool.
