You know what would look really good with those shoes? A 1969 Porsche in mustard yellow. Yes, fuck.

This weekend, Becca Lemire and I are hitting Mississauga to skulk around lots full of pastel mustangs, rabble-rousing corvettes, station wagons with inviting interiors and 1950s Ford Trucks that will wheel us to late night diners on dirty back roads. We may even bid on a 1968 Mercury Cougar. Giddy-up.

Yes, vintage cars turn are a total turn on. The smell, the leather interiors, the creaky noises when you shimmy towards the window, the old radios and that irresistible engine roar. Whether you fashion yourself a Betty Draper or a James Dean, there is a car that is humming your name. 

This is not just for millionaire car collectors; buying and owning a classic ride is more affordable than you think. Here’s a link for this year’s line up of cars for auction.

This three-day event showcases approximately 400-500 fabulous classics and an outstanding assortment of nostalgia and automotive memorabilia. Even if you aren’t in the market, it’s a fun way to spend an afternoon. Vroom-vroooom!!!

Toronto Classic Car Auction is open Friday October 26 to Sunday October 28 See website for full details.
Admission is $18 for a one-day pass.
Located at International Centre, 6900 Airport Road.
