Men sure like their cars. A truly masculine car is one that can traditionally reach an amazing speed, have a cool design that wows girls and provides a trustworthy hobby. But not all men are fascinated by Lamborghinis, Maseratis and Ferraris. Some are more on the classic side, and it’s these ones that will be on the lookout for a old vintage car. Maybe it reminds them of their grandfathers and the time they spent strolling down the street while going to a baseball game. Maybe their dads used to pick them up from school in these unforgettable vehicles. Or maybe they simply like the smell of an old car and they’ve always dreamed of owning a classic vintage car.
So these are some old vintage cars which men prefer to buy.
1955-1963 MERCEDES-BENZ 300SL GULLWING
This Mercedes-Benz model is a classic sports car. It’s also a 2-door coupe, which means it’ll work perfectly for taking your girlfriend on a ride. It comes with a 2996 cc engine, responsible for producing over 212 hp.
The 300SL also has an interesting history. In the 1950s, when it was launched in the US, it was predicted it would be the race car of the streets, and yet it somehow managed to become a real racecar. It’s true that the manufacturers performed some modifications in order for this to happen, but the 300SL won the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Eifelrennen, two racing competition in 1952.
1955-1957 CHEVROLET BEL AIR
The Bel Air is a classic full-size car which received quite a high degree of acclaim at the time the second generation was launched. It’s no wonder that this happened, since the automobile features a breathtaking design.
The car quickly became a popular choice, thanks to its price (less than $2,000), its super-comfortable interior, its high visibility and its capacity. Let’s not forget that it was amazing in the middle of the 20th century to go from 0 to 60 mph in only 12 seconds.
