Very nice and comfortable cars back then. There is still one in my neighbourhood being used as a daily driver in very good but used condition and in its original paint!! No rust.

A 16 year old was on board today in the C-V8. First time she'd ever seen window crank handles in a car. She thought that was the coolest thing ever :D
