    I guess someone forgot that the first Mini Cooper rolled off the line in 1959, and was continually produced in its smaller form until 1999, when the new Mini Cooper was introduced in 2000 and remains in production to this day.

  • THGL

    Even older than the Mini is the Lotus 7 (Super 7). Originally build by Lotus starting in 1957, the design was bought by Caterham Cars (a major Lotus dealer at the time) in ’72 and continues to this day.

    How about Corvette, first one in 1953

    We’re Americans, we want to hear about American cars. That’s just how we roll.

    Corvette, GM image car. Antique Corvettes on the road are worth their weight in gold.

  • Lookin For

    The Siverado has the same frame and drive train as the previous couple of years… what will everyone be copying?

  • Rexford L

    there’s one reason why I won’t be buying a GM(or Chevy, Ford, Nissan or Toyota) pickup.. the lack of a manual transmission in ANY full size pickup they make.

  • tony
