We were watching some old family movies the other night. These were only 20-25 years old, but one thing stood out that I believe we are all miss even with all the exciting things we have now.
These movies were of my niece and nephews, and I know they would have had similar movies of my brothers and me. I think it's a common belief among new parents and grandparents that kids need more toys and things. Watch a child open a gift, discard the toy and play with the box. Or open a cupboard, and watch children spend seemingly endless time playing with simple pots and pans without getting bored. Give a child a small chair or stool, and they will climb in and out of it learning how, getting better and entertaining themselves. I've experienced three generations of this, and it is the same story through all three.
Faster, easier and high-tech might be fun and exciting, but for a deep, satisfying fulfillment, in my mind, simple wins hands down.
It's the same idea with Classic Cars; working on them was easier. You hear the old cars were fast or the mostly unspoken comment because the hot cars got the hot girls. I know they like classic cars because of the ability and satisfaction of doing the work themselves. I think we can all agree, much like these old movies, the old cars bring us back to simpler times and fun.
