Auction of entire museum of muscle cars

re: Corvair, do you keep a really long and heavy screwdriver in the car in case that damnable belt comes off?
That was always interesting. One time on the way home from work, the belt actually broke, and I made a temporary one from my pantyhose. It worked long enough to get off the highway.

On the topic of regularly driving classics, I daily drive a '66 Volvo wagon in Alaska and, frankly, no, it’s not a modern car, but it’s fun, gets reasonable fuel economy for its age (20-25 mpg) keeps up with modern traffic fine, has perfect parts availability and cost about as much as the 2006 Toyota junker noted above. Heck, even my significant other enjoys driving it around, after getting over her initial trepidation. While peak muscle car may not be the most practical regular driver, there are plenty of classics that can be safely and reliably put into regular service.
