/CCG/-Classic Cars General
Rollover protection edition.

In the last episode:
>Cutlass' shit heap arrived
>Crownon's shit heap hasn't died yet
>We discuss dogs like cultured gentlemen
>if I ever fall on hard luck, i push the white shit on the streets like a salt truck

>Cars are considered "classic" at 25 years old, but a vehicle really needs that certain something to be classic.
>Everybody has their own taste, but some tastes are wrong. If you aren't sure if your car is classic or not, it's not.
>American, European, Japanese, or whatever.
>HOWEVER, your Honda Miata doesn't count as a classic yet. 80s+ Hondas are better suited for their own generals as well. Everything else is fair game.
>Post your classic, your work on it, your hackery, and get advice.
>Any and all discussion about classics welcome, but may not necessarily generate responses; don't get butthurt.
>Period correct performance > cosmetics.
>Metal > plastic.
>Classic shitbox > modern shitbox.
>It's required to use RTV. Ignore the haters.
>JBweld can fix almost anything
>If you see rust there is probably more.
>Rust and bodywork are by far the most difficult thing to repair.
>Electrical work is second most difficult, unless you stop reading forum posts and buy a multimeter.
>You're never actually going to finish that engine swap, stop pretending
>Do NOT buy a classic and plan to pay somebody to work on it. You need to be able to do 90% or greater of the work or you will go broke.
>You will inevitably spend twice your budget, unless you have years of experience under your belt. If all the salty old hands agree, it's probably true.
>No one cares about your MPG
