My current classic. 1967 Kaiser Jeepster Deluxe Convertible.

Swapped out the front seats with modern high back bucket seats, but I have the original seats wrapped up in storage. At some point I'll have to re-chrome the bumpers, they are not bad, but lots of little rust spots. Two tone paint pattern is correct but we chose a color that is not correct because I lost the vote. The blue is actually a classic Porsche paint color called "Mexico Blue"

About 88,000 miles on the odometer.

Replaced the fuel line last year due to a leak.

At some point I may upgrade it to fuel injection but being an old carbonated engine may be nostalgic, it takes forever to 'warm up' and get running. There are advantages to modern engines.

Earliest car I remember of Mom and Dads.

Maroon 1949 Ford Country Squire. I think I remember Dad saying he had a Model A before this but I donít remember it.

I remember taking trips to the drive in movies in the station wagon. Cooler of soft drinks and Mom popped a grocery bag of popcorn. There was a playground in front of the screen where we played during intermission.

I found this and it reminded me of Dr. Stippich.
He was our family dentist when I was a kid.
He drove a car just like this!
He was a little man who walked with a cane, always had a cigar in his mouth out in public.

Big car for a little man lol

I'd never ever heard of this till today.
They labeled it General Motors Motorama 1949 to 1961.

Sure looks like a relative to the Corvette. Have any of you seen one of these.

From what I found General Motors Motorama was a GM Auto show. Not an actual vehicle. But a show to show off concept cars and prototypes. I have no clue what the vehicle pictured is.

Edit: The one in the background I think is a 1955 Buick Wildcat concept car
The one in the foreground looks like a 1954 Olds F88 concept

Not sure on the car. Looks like a modified early 60s vette. The metroliner bus in yhe background is cool. I recall seeing a restored one go for 4million ish on barrett Jackson a few years ago.
