Eomund Posted February 12, 2020 Report Share Posted February 12, 2020 I'm gearing up to write a fun coffee table book. I use to write all the time. But haven't for years mostly due to work. So I wanted to write something personal to me. I have personally owned 5 classic cars and I can't count how many motorcycles. My dad has always had some form of classic my whole life too being a big influence. It's been a while since I have written anything to this scale and I'm still in the note taking portion. To outline my direction and path of the book. I'm posting here to see if anyone has anything they would like to contribute and/or some basic ideas for the book. There are the cliffs of my notes as it stands: The Zen of Classic Cars Notes: Introduction (What is a classic and why zen) Mechanics (Joys of working on your own car etc.) Driving (Sports or other) Speed (Joys of fast and slow vehicles) Pride (of your accomplishments and the lovely random compliments) Beauty (Old cars just looked better) Simplicity (The advantages of the simplicity of older cars) Cost (The advantages of old vehicles monetarily. But the possible down sides too) Function (Not function as in reliability [maybe touch on that], but function as in space, storage and actual functionality) And input from you all is appreciated. And I will cite any direct quotes I might use. But for now, I'm not looking for exact information but just some basic outlines so I can make a cohesive direction in my writing. 4 Quote Link to comment
