Classic cars, at least in my opinion, generally tend to be at least somewhat interesting. Most people go for things like classic muscle, sports, or luxury cars, or even just cars that have a particularly unusual or interesting design, like the Fiat 500 or Citroen 2CV. You know, cars with flair. But what about the more ordinary ones? The ones average people owned, the ones that weren’t particularly flashy, fast, fun to drive, or luxurious; but got the job done? I find these often-overlooked everyday cars of yesterday intriguing. I would argue that despite their age and the obvious downsides that come with that, they’re more interesting nowadays than the average new car. Plus, there tends to be lower demand for them, so you can find loads of them for much cheaper than popular choices like muscle or sports cars. So what’s your favorite mildly interesting classic car?
