There’s a certain mystique to driving old iron because there’s a built-in risk factor.

 

Old brakes don’t have the stopping power of new brakes so a single master cylinder and drums add a ‘pushing the envelope’ flair to a routine drive.

 

Some old cars are better than others—this ’56 Ford won’t stop like your new Hyundai SUV but it will do better than a ’38 Ford.

This Sunbeam Alpine is still relatively nimble in traffic but it won’t brake better than a new Toyota minivan.

A 1ST Gen Firebird will do okay even in 2017 if it came with discs on the front but it won’t out-stop a new Camaro.
