Car shows by me have some old cars but more and more of newer corvettes and challengers are appearing. I laugh and want to let them know I can see those everyday on a used car lot. Lol.

Got tired of maintaining or trying to maintain older stuff without decent quality parts available.

Got tired of car shows, swap meets and having other gearheads either tell me about what was wrong with my cars or how they used to have one just like it but with some features that never existed.
crazy

Don't miss it at all.

Not a gearhead. 72 XLCH back before customs came out of a box. The guy that painted it was a perfectionist and when the paint job was amazing. I could only afford the tank. The next year he painted the fender and they matched perfectly. In my humble opinion a sportsters is the best sounding bike that has ever been manufactured.
