Top 5 Vintage Cars

Who doesn’t love an awesome vintage car? Well, maybe not your 10-year-old who happens to be impressed by the latest Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Coupe, but certainly most of the rest of the world loves a beautifully maintained and restored classic.

The 1966 Shelby Cobra cannot be ignored. While this collector car might cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars, at least it won’t run you in the millions that many other vintage models would. The horsepower on this baby is phenomenally fun and will keep you zipping down the roads of Denver and Littleton to the envy of all who pass you by. Although, you may want to keep it off the roads until all the snow, rain, and ice have passed US by!

While it’s true you can find one of these babies for under $5,000, remember the old adage, “You get what you pay for.” Even if you do buy one on the cheap, putting in a few thousand more to get it running in top condition will only make the investment more worthwhile. This is by far one of the most fun cars to drive that won’t cost you tens of thousands of dollars. 


Come on, who doesn’t at least appreciate a 1974 Porsche 911? They are still powerful and remain a true contender on the track. Besides, this iconic model still turns heads and puts fear into the hearts of anyone wanting to street race. What more could you ask for, really?

Can’t you just picture yourself driving along the Amalfi coast with the top down on the little red beauty, a warm breeze that dances your hair all over the place? The 1966 Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto is perfect for looking good and getting having fun. Oh…. and even have room for the luggage you’ll need while traveling through Europe. 


Hubba! Hubba! Can’t you just hear the roar of the engine on this beauty as your feet flit from clutch to the gas pedal to get the most out of this vintage car’s power. This is a re-engineered version of the classic Mustang Shelby that would run you $169,000 on up, but it certainly lets you revel in the history of this iconic Mustang. Talk about vroom vroom! What fun!
