Cool Hey Greasers! I'm a total green horn!

Hey Everybody,
I know very little about actually working On A Car, Not to
Mention, I don't Have One right Now. I Ride A Harley.
Here's The thing, I want To eventually get A Car To Drive when It's Rainning Or Freezing on My Bike.
I'm Obsessed with the 50's.(early Rock'N'Roll & Hot Rod Culture)
I'm Not Settin' The world On Fire With My Financial situation But,
I was Hoping To Get Ideas From This Forum How To make An
educated Decision about Trying To Find A Good Daily Driver So
I could Go where I wanna Go and At The Same time Be able To
work On It and learn as I Go about The wonderfull World Of Rodding! I'd Love To find just about any decent Running Car
From the 50's, 60's, or Before.
This Is An Awesome Website! I've already learned alot just
skimming through the forum. Any comments Or Ideas about
Me Finding a Cool Car (Or Not) would Be greatly apreciated.

Tony Dangerous

That is a pretty broad topic. There are hundereds of cool cars. The cheapest and easiest to find would be an early 60's car.

Wow! You Guys are right. I priced some 50's model Cars and
they seem To Be Through The Roof with The Prices. With My
limited mechanical Knowledge I think I'm Gonna Have To Keep
dreamin' For A While and Go To My Friends House and Drool
Over His 49' Ford Business Coupe.
Thanks For The comments Guys. Keep Roddin!

Try pricing out a late '60's Galaxie or Meteor. Really cool cars and relatively easy to work on.
If you had a good amount of cash to spend I'd say look for an old late '50's vette, but I think they run a lot of cash these days....

Also, if you're not totally stuck on the '50's or '60's you could try looking for an early '70's muscle car and make that your start. I personally like the early '70's Dusters and Roadrunner's. But Nova's and Chevelle's are nice too.

Chickie.
