      It seems like fun, but those don't really look like classics in my opinion.

      Wow awesome pics. Japanese classics are still pretty much a redheaded stepchild here.
      You can still buy one of those brand new if you live in South Africa:




      The Three Pillars of German Engineering:
      1.Why would you do it any other way?
      2.If we don't make it, you don't need it.
      3.It was difficult to make, therefore it should be difficult to use.
