Unlock car door, climb in. Put key in ignition and twist. Let engine crank for 6-10 seconds to let oil pressure build up. Turn key off. Pump gas pedal 4 times and turn key again. That is the secret to starting my 1968 Dodge Charger. It’s 43 years old, still has a big ole’ four-barrel carburetor on top of its 440 cubic inch V8, and when it roars to life it’s like heaven to my ears. You see new cars are more like driving appliances, where old cars drive your personality. They make the hairs on the back of your neck stand-up, they take you away from the trials of everyday life, and they bring back words like passion, craftsmanship and power. Sure they’re not for everyone, which is something that’s just fine by me, because let’s face it, old cars have a place in this world and it’s not sitting in the garage of average people.
