Watch The Boys From The Grand Tour Talk Vintage Cars

Vintage, pre-war (WWII) cars are some of the most sought after and expensive machinery on the planet. Thing is though, it takes a lot for me to get excited about them. Skinny wheels massive bodies its difficult to imagine having a great deal of fun in them. Now, if you’re idea of fun is going to the park and doing a spot of Civil War reenactment then these cars are for you. I think the people who love these cars are the type who get a kick out of putting on the period correct clothing and paraphernalia. That allure of going back to a simpler time, the romantic notion of a time when driving was an event.

Yes, some of the cars from the 30s and 40s form the foundation to some great hot rods, but that’s not what were talking about here, were talking unmodified, as they left the factory machinery. That doesn’t really do it for me, but don’t take my word for it let the boys from The Grand Tour tell you their thoughts as only they can.
