I can do you one better than the DK sticker. When my dad was in junior high, he collected campaign memoribilia from the 1960 presidential election. So my Lincoln actually has a Kennedy for President sticker in the back window!


Ohhh... have sticker envy..must try to find Kennedy sticker on E-Bay...

I don't know how to drive. I ride a beat up old bicycle!

But I love all your cars. Wish I had one!

I've wanted a late-'60s Dodge Dart (ideally green) for the loooongest time, but I figure such a car would need to also become a hobby. If I had the money for it, the one car I really, really want is a late-'40s yellow Studebaker convertible.

My grandma had an early 60's Fairlane for which I still pine...sigh...not to mention the red '65 MGB my father sold after he promised it to me. Family! Gotta love 'em!!

For now I am happy with my Volvo station wagon. You can fit a moose in one of those things. Or a tiki.

Humuhumu, in Port Townsend a few years back I ran across a guy with an old warehouse/garage who sold automobile antiques. (manuals, parts, memorabilia etc.)

He also had some amazing vintage cars for sale!! and his prices were very reasonable, especially as they looked to be in superb shape. Ohhh, I'm still pining for this late 40's blue convertible--I think it was a Chevy or a Chrysler, auuugh. I have pictures somewhere.

Anyway, is he still there? And/or have you seen that place?

--Lisa

p.s. I'm so with you on that Dart, especially. They are the greatest cars. A friend of mine once told me, "pick a car like you're picking clothing--choose something you'll look good in!" Well, you'd go marvelously with a green Dart.

Humuhumu, I used to have a '64 Dodge Dart GT. It was one of the best cars I've ever owned for a vehicle of that era and type. It had the slant six engine, push-button drive, and since it was the GT model, the bucket seats / with consol & other ammenities (which back in the '60's on a car that cheap were few). If you see one in good shape at a down to earth price...grab it.

Dr. Z, last summer when we had that huge south swell, I saw that T-Bird parked down by the Wedge here on the peninsula. Ever since I saw it, I've dreamed of that car. It was perfect.

For me, I'm still dreamin' of that '59 Coupe Deville. I gotta get a Cadillac. Long white and chopped.

My 65 riviera is chopped and i'm in the process of having some other body modifications done. After painting I would like to hire a member of TC to paint a Tiki on the trunk. Anyone interested?

Luckydesigns, had a '60 Coupe Deville, same car but smaller fins and sans the 4 bullet tail lights (which used to get ripped off a lot by guys with '64 Impalla lowriders). Great car! a true American "land yacht". This car had 4 lighted ash trays w/ lighters, an automatic high beam dimmer (that thing on the dash that looks like a ray-gun), a foot switch on the floor that you could change the radio with without taking your hands off the wheel. All this and enough HP to move this piece of Detroit metal sculpture to any place on the map with a touch of your right foot.

OK, better late than never. Here's my baby. Here name is Audrey and she's a 1963 Chevy Nova with teal interior. When I bought her 10 years ago, she was practically stock. But the original 194 engine eventually took a dive and I replaced it with a 250. (Sorry, couldn't afford the 350.) Since I drove it everyday on the freeway, I also converted the 2-speed powerglide to a 3-speed and put in power steering. Oh, and I put in an electronic ignition for those cold mornings. Unfortunately, she's been in the shop for some time with a mysterious steering problem. (I wish I could just afford that new rack and pinion front end they make now for Novas.) I miss her everyday.

Hey Vintagegirl,

Very cool Nova!! Smart move with the electronic ignition, I did the same on my riviera. Hope you get her back soon! I'm doing some extra work to mine and plan on having her in the hootenanny car show.

tikivixen/humuhumu...That shop with the old cars and stuff is still open in Port Townsend and the prices are reasonable...So reasonable that a couple weeks ago some chrome covered thing had me thinking I should really own a car. And if you go to PT drink at Sirens.

Any car can be a Tiki car. 3 years ago I had a dazzlingly bland sunbleached beige 1983 Ford Futura (on loan from a friend). I did the inside all Tiki for summer of '00. In the back window sat some plastic mugs and fruit and leis, the Freaky Tiki nodder and a hula girl, with paper Chinese lanterns hanging down. Pineapple air freshener freshening the air. It was like driving in my own private island paradise.

Vintagegirl, I know what you mean I sold my 4 door, 1964 Nova with a straight 6 a few years ago, totally stock, a very sweet little car, plus I looked so cute in it! I loved that car. I still miss it! I basically gave it away for nothing. I'm looking for a old Nova Wagon now...your priorities change with a baby. As boring as my Honda is, it is more reliable. The trade off was worth it.

Totally understandable, DawnTiki. I guess you can't really have a toddler sliding around that bench seat. Although that does remind me of when I was a kid (before the seat belt law) and my mom basically throwing out her right arm in front of me if she had to stop suddenly.....like that would've really done any good.
