What is the oldest DD you have seen this winter?

I have been watching this week because the weather has been so cold and nasty. I'm curious to see who really has the oldest DD on the road. Until today the oldest thing I had seen was a 1980 C10 (rough and obviously a DD).

Today at lunch I saw a 53-56 F100. It was in show shape, so maybe it was just out for a battery charge and bearing lube.

I had my 84 Dodge W 250 out today first time I have started it in weeks, it took some cranking to get it to start, but it is a cold natured beast even in the summer it doesn't like to start when to is cold

If I was back home, I'm usually driving the oldest rigs out of any I see...

Wag is 76, Ferd is 65.

Scout was 63, T-All 68, Jeepster 68, Ramblers 66, F250 66.
Used/driven, but not beaten. Back roads when at all possible, interstates are too full of texters/latte sippers/zombies.

Think my newest rig ever was an 89 XJ, but to me that's a new car.

My 77 is normally my daily, but it's waiting on a transmission swap. So I'm driving my brothers 91 comanche, since he can't drive a stick

A guy I work with has been DD'ing his '62 Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk all winter. It's super solid looking but with a nice patina on it.


I switch between DD'ing my '79 Cherokee and my '99 Cummins Dodge.

My 68 Impala wagon, until the Buick 350 gets replaced in my 69. Or more likely till the SBC in my Chevelle gets replaced. Started that one up two weeks ago, love the rumble of old turbo mufflers. Smokes too much or I'd drive it.

Neighbor's '62 Volvo P1800. No snow or salt yet so it's safe.

59 Land Rover

Until last year my DD was my '59 Land Rover with stock 4.88 gearing, 4 speed with no overdrive. It screams at 55 so I almost always took the backroads.

I saw a 39 Cadillac convertible coupe today. I have a hard time believing that one is a daily driver. I don't know why he would have it out on a day like today!

An older guy with a green 70 Malibu can be seen around the Boston area any time of year. Looks like it has been fairly well maintained and still has its dog dish hubcaps.

There's also a 68 Mustang I see on the street and moved around to various parking spaces year-round near me.

Lots of 50's pickup trucks, have seen some really nice ones recently.

~63 Dodge w/ manual trans. and Hemi. Older guy (guessing ~65) owns/drives it, see it all the time.
Really nice clean car w/ CA black plates, sounds wickedly fantastic.

~67 Camaro, orange v8, elderly lady drives it everyday. Probably the original owner.
I think she works @ the library, seen it there several times.

I could list many many more, but unfair advantage vs. snowbird/rust belt states.

Out here people can drive nice cars daily and not have to worry as much.
