¿What is Old School in Europe?

In the automotive industry, the manufacturers have been bringing new models, with new designs, new lines and engines, like every other industries.

Nowadays everything new is made to be broken, or in a few years or in the same season, but why does it happen? Why these cars aren’t what their big brothers used to be?  Why reviving the legendary models in a dumbest way? I don’t understand.

This post is about european cars, but not the current ones. I declare myself against new euro cars, I don’t like them, main reason is because electronics, they kill a car. I know is needed but always in a good measure.

So … We know quite well the old school of the U.S., with its monstrous Hemis, Stangs and Yenkos, or Japan, with its GT-R, Supras and such, but what about Europe?

Well, the Spanish people who is reading this, will know what I’m talking about, and they know that these cars are able to make you sweat, a lot of power and simple mechanically talking. In my opinion, these cars are a lot better than actual ones.

We will make a return to the past, we will remember the glories of European motorsport, everything, the golden age, rallying, resistance races… But, I’m gonna reduce that to a determinated period. I choose the cars we used to have here in this mediterranean country, Spain.

I always like to talk to an adult about these old school cars, when I name one, they always have positive adjecives to describe them. Do you know everything was better in the past.

So sit down and enjoy.

They are small, old, square, ugly, fat… But I’m sure that they got more balls than more of the brand new cars in your local dealer. I said.

It’s enough… I wanted to show some videos too, so here we have two that I the recent found, so enjoy them!\
