22 Vintage Cars You Should Add To Your Collection

There’s not a gearhead or a gas-breather among us who wouldn’t love to have a heated garage full of classic muscle, old Phantoms, and luxury autos so full of chrome they would make a 1970’s street pimp green with envy.

1970 Datsun 240Z

The original Japanese sports car, the Z had power to spare, being able to outperform Porsche’s precious 911 and school Jaguar E-Types in the rules of the road. 


1969 Toyota 2000GT

Once upon a time, Toyota wanted to branch out of the family sedan business where they typically make their bread and butter. When they did, the results were a masterful mix of smart engineering, quality aerodynamics, and precision gas burning, all in a frame that looks like an Italian roadster.


1994-96 Buick Roadmaster

During the mid-90’s, these came outfitted with LT1 Corvette engines, which gave them more than a little power behind that big boat of a body.


Fiat 124 Spider

There’s not a bad year for a Spider, nor is there a particularly good one. These are always fun to work on and great buys as more of a project car than a collector’s piece.


1987 Buick Grand National

Ready to race or just look amazing, few recognize the majesty to be had here, but those that do respect it.


1966 Lamborghini Miura

Certainly not budget friendly, but perhaps the apex of both style and performance for the era, you’ll get more than a few salutes if you go this route.


1930 Ford Model A Tudor

Not much for speed, but when it comes to seeing how the humble auto came into being, this is the only fun kind of history lesson.
