It is with sadness that I have come to the conclusion that the early 911 look is as tired and boring as that of the ubiquitous 32 Ford Hot Rod.
Now, so you know I am not just a hater, I have a 911 and my father owns a 32 Hi Boy. But damn, I am just sick of all the hype around both of these cars. Like a new type of wash on denim all the variations. People trying to do something different that in the end, is not different.
And it is pretty obvious at any sort of cruise, gathering, cars & coffee that both the 32 Ford and early 911 have lost their appeal. The only people checking them out are the other owners. "These are the French market driving lights, very rare here..." or "I had the guys at Pete and Jake do a special powder coat color for me..." Ugh.
The cars with the interest are the goofy ones. The rare ones. The odd survivors. Which, is really good. Because the cars that are interesting to the majority of auto hobbyists today are not just the expensive ones.
Anyone agree or disagree?
