TO THE EDITOR:
“Bringing classic cars back to the dealership” (autonews.com, Sept. 2) was a great article. I think there should be U.S. dealers who have classic cars in their stores. This would bring back stories of the classic cars gone by. Our new generation would get a chance to ponder a classic car parked at a dealership waiting for service, plus possibly own one. As far as I’m concerned, there should be a classic car parked in every driveway in America. People would share a camaraderie of our history and get our children involved driving these classic automobiles. I’m sure this would give them a sense of pride. I’m sure there are retired mechanics who would jump at the chance to work part-time at a company that handles repairing classic cars.
The classic-car business is still thriving, but yes, expensive. There are parts for most every classic car, from top to bottom, online or in magazines. So bring back the smiles to the classic-car owner.
