Classic cars have the special kind of look that comes from an object that has been designed with more taste than ingenuity, in a time before every design was perfected over generations of models. Today’s cars are sleek, finely tuned machines, but vintage cars were works of art. The principles of aerodynamics and fuel efficiency had yet to be fully applied to car design, and engineers relied a lot more on their imaginations to come up with exciting and creative new models. It is hard to imagine that there was a time where everyone drove these, their charm is borderline cartoonish and hard to envision as a standard model used in everyday life. But while today’s cars have the feel of being polished and laser crafted to perfection in a laboratory, with retro cars, you really feel as though they were designed with a piece of paper, a human hand, and a human imagination to go along with it.
