First impressions count a lot when meeting someone for the first time, especially in today’s online dating world. You want to make the right first impression. Here are the best vintage cars that are sure to impress your dates.
1. Mercedes 300SL Gullwing
If you are more of the flashy type, then you should go for the Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. Also known as the W198, this vehicle is considered the first supercar and was launched at the New York Auto Show in 1954. It was the first Mercedes model to feature a fuel injected engine and graceful bodywork, featuring impressive aerodynamics and winged doors.
This two-seater sports car will generate interest in your date mainly due to its rarity given that only 1,400 were produced. The car also has plenty of room for you and your date.
2. Zimmer Golden Spirit
If you want to meet your date in style then you should choose this vehicle. This car was the flagship of Zimmer Motorcars, established in 1978. The company produced more than 1,500 vehicles. This model was built on a Ford Mustang transmission and chassis and comes with a Ford Windsor V-8 302 (5.0 liter) engine capable of producing 228 hp.
What else? This is one of the super rare cars because only a few were built. As such, a date with this vintage car will help you woo your potential mate.
3. Chevrolet Corvette 1970
The 1970 Corvette is a sports car equipped with air conditioning and a 3-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. It comes equipped with a base 5.7L engine, which will impress any date. If you find a date on Cupid and pull that car over to your date, your potential partner will see that you have a taste for cars.
It was produced in two models: a coupe and a convertible. There have been some notable design changes from previous models. Like the wing, the louvers have been modified to feature an egg crate pattern grille. Corvettes with a custom interior featured a dressy look, leather-trimmed seats, door-to-door carpeting, and wood grain trim on the doors and console. This provides an extra layer of warmth, and your date will love it.
4. VW Beetle
The Volkswagen Beetle was designed for everyday use and is one of the best-selling cars. It had been in production for over eight decades and still has a cult following to this day. The Volkswagen Type 1 symbolizes simplicity with no more than 200 moving parts in the original air-cooled flat-four engine.
The vehicle has a soft, rounded shape and comes with lamps that look like pleading eyes. These iconic features make the VW Beetle instantly recognizable wherever it goes. Getting to your first date with this car will make your date want to roll with you and forget about dinner.
5. 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS-350
This pony car was built as an “yours” response to their Ford Mustang rivals. The car offers comfort and is fitted with a 350-CID V-8 engine which produces roughly 295 hp. It also included heavier suspension components with large oval tires.
Some models had a luxury interior, which included exclusive seat covers, rear armrests with ashtrays, molded door panels, among other premium features.
6) Austin Healey 3000
Austin-Healey 3000 was in production between 1959 and 1967. This sports car is known to be the best big Healey model. During its production life, Austin-Healey 3000 evolved into a sports convertible.
