    I used to have a 1967 GTO. It ran like a scalded dog, cornered and braked accurately, had air conditioning, and was comfortable on very long trips.

    I still miss that car.

    Do you miss
    Adjusting the carb ?
    Vapor Lock ?
    Adjusting points ?
    Fouling plugs ?

    I love old cars for the style and even love working on them but if I'm going to drive long distance, I would take a modern car every time.

    In the case of the 250 GTO, being impractical is sorta the point. It was built for the track with few compromises. Just think what a fun filled weekend you could have balancing it's 6 Weber carbs
