I'm not even into cars, but some old ones have a certain je ne sais quoi, a charming touch.

Okay, calling a Trabant "Lightning" might be a stretch.

Interesting photos! I'm also not into cars, but these classic cars sure look "elegant".

Quite a display of automotive variety! And they are virtually color matched! The old Sedan DeVille is a classic, not sure what the other critter is??

Very nicely done photos. Love that Caddy and as they say, "Nothing Like A Big American Boat Ride." )

The other one is the diminutive (seriously it's very cute and small) Trabant from the German Democratic Republic!
I posted both pictures together because the cars look nice and are indeed almost the same colour although their designs couldn't be further apart.

I think this comment should get the under statement of the day award...

Two nicely contrasting cars, even if they are much the same colour. The Trabant is certainly legendary but for all the wrong reasons!
