It's my top favorite year of the Cadillac's, loved the stacked headlights and the high compression 472ci V8 engine although I would gladly choose any Cadillac built from 1961 to 1970.

Unless I'm driving through some European village with narrow cobblestone streets, I can't imagine any attraction at all to this group of econo-rustbuckets , with the exception of the classic lines of the original Beetle.

No, they were somewhat similar but still separate models.

You can't imagine any attraction to any of them? Here's a couple off his list that I like.

I absolutely love customized Squarebacks and have had a few:







I've also had over 20 custom air cooled early VW Beetles.

Another off his list is the Datsun 510:







And the Datsun Fairlady has a following as well, as it's a classic, traditional sports car:

The IH vehicles were used by the milittary in the 60s. I remember going on the tarmac at various bases we lived at and those things were all over. My dad drove one around a lot.

That is '65 or '66, but more or less equivalent in design to a '68.
