Men like cars, that’s a fact, and a truly masculine car is cool, can go fast, and has a damn satisfying engine sound. But in all honesty, some just aren’t interested in the latest Lamborghinis or Ferraris.
Because classic cars have somewhat of a refreshing tone, and many love old but gold, vintage cars that seem to be reminders of the good times: was it when your grandfather strolling down the street going to a baseball game? Your dad that came to pick you up in one of these bad boys? Or are you attached to that permanent leather smell?
Whatever the case, here’s the best list of 7 vintage cars for men, that many would be craving for:
1955-1963 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing
A classic sports car, coming with it’s 2-door coupe, meaning you can take anyone on a ride. It comes also with quite a lot of history, as in the 1950s, it was considered as the race car off the streets, even ending up as a real racecar. In the end, the 300SL won the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Eifelrennen in 1952. Quite a jewel, right?
1955-1975 Citroen DS
Quite the short name but a must own for any vintage car amateur. It’s classified as a luxury car, coming in multiple variants: 4-door sedan, 5-door station wagon and even a 2-door convertible. Many models you can choose from, always with an engine between 1.9 and 2.24 L.
When it was initially launched, Europe was recovering from World War II, so it inevitably came in the wat of sales success. Citroen nowadays aren’t known for high prices, so the models had to be introduced differently and cheaper.
1955-1957 Chevrolet Bel Air
Having received a high degree of acclaim at the time, the automobile has a stunning design. It become popular quickly, with an extremely cheap cost, high visibility and capacity for its time. It fell off obviously since the rise of modern cars, but in the 50’s, it could go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 15 seconds.
1974-1989 Lamborghini Countach
Getting back to summer despite the current cold days. It would seem old-fashioned probably right now, but back in the days, this was the ultimate design. The vehicle had great performances for the time, looked brilliant, truly one of the best if not the best of its decade. Being a limited edition too, that only contributed to it’s short, yet massive popularity.
1961-1969 Lincoln Continental
Wonder what a president would drive at the time? There you have it, because what you’re looking for is the Lincoln Continental. Being featured in many films, such as Spider Man 2, The Matric and Hit and Run, this model will never go out of style anytime soon.
1949 Cadillac Series 62
A most certainly successful year for Cadillac was 1949, because after its new brand being launched, featuring a 5.4 L engine, and a horsepower of 160, that was the real deal at the time. The car led to great sales and was highly appreciated by the public.
1967-1970 Toyota 2000GT
A collaboration between Toyota and Yamaha which yielded great results. The car, designed by Albrecht Goertz featured a 2.0 L straight-6 engine, producing a massive horsepower of 150. The Toyota 2000GT, despite initially not being made for races, won the 1967 Fuji 24-Hour Race competition.
