vintage - The car my Dad bought for the three of us to learn to drive. It was a stick, small and cheap on gas. A quarter would give you a 1/4 of a tank and we could drive all night until our curfew at 10 p.m.
Some cars have such classic lines you don't have to see the whole thing to know what it is.
The Original VW Beetle...it would be in better condition after rolling down into a 30-foot ravine than a Toyota after hitting a curb. The cabin is water-tight so it won't sink. And if the garage isn't an option, pluck it in the living room!
