Modern cars are festooned with touchscreens, airbags, beeps and bongs. Sure, they're safer than ever, but there are a few features of old cars that we really miss...

I love the simplicity of my 2005 Subaru: - Key that looks like a key. Turn it and the car starts. - Handbrake that you use your hand to operate that makes a clicking noise. - Gear stick (shift) which is tremendous fun. Who wants to drive a dodgem car with two pedals? - Radio/CD player for entertainment. That's it. It's just a basic, comfortable, machine for driving me from A to B and it works every time and costs me next to nothing. I'm never selling it. Why would I buy an ugly, modern car that is mainly made of plastic and offers a lesser driving experience? Where is the value proposition? I do not care if people "look down" on my older model. I look down on them for being sucked into a never ending 3 year cycle of wasting money. But it's their money so I don't care.

What I absolutly HATE about most new cars is electric power steering. It doesn't give any feedback, you never really know what happens to front wheels.

I was told to drive my mother’s car to drive her friend home last night because she doesn’t have a license. I almost hit our truck because I didn’t realizing I was steering left, I drive a 1967 and I can actually initially tell where my wheels are pointing.

My last three cars have had electric steering. It does have a very numb feeling but I can't say that it makes the car unsafe to drive. Actually the amount of power assist decreases with speed so at highway speeds there's almost no assist at all. The boost comes on full at parking speeds. I've gotten to where I appreciate it.

I miss having manual heat and A/C controls. Nowadays they are imbedded into the digital on-screen controls of a GPS/Radio/Phone system. It was nice to just turn a knob to get nice hot air directed at my feet instead of taking my eyes off the road to fiddle with some complicated onscreen display.

You mean the internal combustion engine? I hear ya. I'm really looking forward to a cross country road trip in an electric car that takes 2 hrs to charge so I can go another 200 miles. My current gas engine car has an 18.5 gallon tank and gets 40 mpg. Nearly 700 mile range. It can be refilled in 5 minutes.

oh, and i forgot one thing.. money.. what care manufacturers care about now is money.. modern cars break in a few years and if something happens.. well forget fixing it on your own, anything breaks? well you're up for one expensive repair! classic cars were made to last.. because well.. they're still around! which means one thing, they still work! i doubt any cars built today still runs in 20 years and fixing a classic cars? well a few simple tools and you can do something they'd charge 100s of dollars for on a modern car

@Matt Bates i know its a old comment i would like to say my opinion. oh yes how fast the rust comes out on the modern cars. it mostly cause our climate is very wet most of the year. most of the modern cars, cant make it out of body quarantee, when they already have rust. plus engines. older times, carmakers tried to make cars last longer and longer cause then people would by their cars. but then carmakers noticed that if cars last so long, nobody buys new cars. so they started making everything wear faster. when older cars engine could do 1 000 000km without bigger problems, then nowadays cars. when i worked at one place, than there were cars, driven under 200 000km and their piston rings were already worn out, and their engines were burning oil like hell. you cant see older cars much on streets cause people bought newer cars cause they were modern and sold old cars for little money. and the guys who bought the older cars were just fooling around with them. for example. one man told me a real story. when the russian time ended in estonia(i live here), then all the cheap economical modern japanese cars took over and all the old russian cars prices were really really down. and this mans sons bought these cars for candy price and did all kinds of stunts. he said that there was a new car every day.

I drive a Volvo PV444 (among others) from 1951. Been in the family since it was new. Just goes and goes. All you need is a toolbox, some oil and something all men used to have, basic mechanical skills. No computers or electrical problems. Just a simple engine, straightly built car without problems. And damn good looking.

I miss not having plastic engine covers, analogue speedometers, when u knock an old car, u know that thing is made of steel by the sound it makes. Nowadays most cars sound like they are made of hard plastic when you knock with your hand. Also miss reasonably soft seats. Miss regular tyres that are not low profile, steel wheels too. Miss not having too many entertainment in the car, i used to talk to my co passengers while driving, nowadays they are almost always looking at a screen. Miss steel chrome plated hubcaps.

Sound is also a thing, engines in old cars usually sound good (I really like the sound of my mums '94 Volvo 965 3.0) but in nowadays in many 'normal' cars you have like a 4 cylinder TDI or something. And to be honest I don't really like the awesome powerful sound of an engine like that. Even my parents new hybrid car sounds more exciting than that. It makes spaceship noises when stepping on the gas. And yeah old keys were cooler than all those keyless go systems. You can still get mechanical handbrakes, even in 2016 cars. I like the design of older cars, which is mostly "form follows function" so that it is good to drive and you have enough space inside and not "pressed through the wind tunnel" just for aerodynamics

I miss the small, aero style. This is why the S2K and MX5 will forever be my favourite car. I had an 03 Sunfire, totaled it due to black ice, so I got a 2015 Elantra. The new car is great, especially for 20, but it's large, boaty, and feels like it's designed for people who just wanna get from A to B. Feels like the passion is gone. Not to mention I had to take apart THE ENTIRE DASH AND THEN SOME just to put in a goddamn air filter.

Classic cars (mainly from the early early 90s and lower) are becoming more and more unpopular because everyone is into the new shit. I have many friends who own cars from the 70s and 60s and even the 30s that have better performance than a SRT8 or a Mustang GT. All facts. A friend of mine owns a 1967 Pontiac Firebird, all white with a 588 cubic inch big block, he's running 8 seconds flat.

@CJ Colvin Plus gigantic badges, oversized or narrow headlamps, pompous grills, weird angles and dents everywhere. It's not attractive.

@ButterSquids Fuel efficeincy for the eco-fascists!! Real petrolheads go for PASSION! and simple driving pleasure. Expecting supercars to be efficient is so stupid and hypocrite.

I agree on fixing old cars. Though granted all the old cars I've fixed are Ts, and As, (so ancient) but they're so much nicer than modern cars. It took an hour with two people to change the battery in my modern car, because some genius decided to put it under a metal bar, and a fuse box. When it comes to weight I'm not sure if older is better. I've seen plenty of old cars that are built like tanks.

This video is so true that's why I have a old 1982 gmc sierra. by the way you forgot to mention that old cars are easy to modify as well modifying new cars is expensive and not as effective

When it came to sounds, you couldn't beat the old cartridge 8-track cassette.....well you could really.

My brand new Honda Accord has a twist turn key for the ignition, a manual gearbox and excellent visibility with thin A pillars while still being very safe, along with a regular non electronic hand brake.

Using your arm strength to steer the wheel when making manouvers. Ah, the days of no power steering

I miss the little vent windows and the dimmer switch on the floor. I miss ashtrays and bench seats. I miss opening the hood and being able to find the spark plugs. I miss being surrounded in a metal. (Bam ! - Hit a deer, wash off the blood and fur and keep driving - Not even a dent) I miss the old styles. They had character.

You also missed one more thing, the extreme smell of fuel while the car is idling.

I miss how easy it was to steal cars back then, me and my friends used to steals cars I the night, drive them around all night and return them to the owner and we never got caught

I miss my 76' Moskvitch because its so reliable and cheap. You can fix it with hammer and a wire. Or you can buy 60k km looking like a brand new 70hp "masselcar" which torque can beat some i6 engines.

Manual gearbox is still the norm in Europe, but not in America, where you're allowed to learn to drive only in an auto since longer (70's). So when you're a American car enthousiast, you usually have an automatic gearbox. Funnier, and safer (i'm talking about thieves : Most people can't drive it).

When a heated steering wheel comes standard, but you have to pay extra for a spare tire, you just know things are going south... Mostly I miss the ride itself. Nowadays, even luxury saloons are tuned for performance: It makes them safer and it looks better in the sales brochure, I get all that. But since the ride itself can't be expressed in numbers, it's prone to get sidelined.

I drive my dad's old 85' GMC K20 pickup. The closest thing I have to a computer is the stereo. And she's manual too ;)

I miss cars that don't drive for you. Keep your traction control, stability control, auto braking etc etc etc. Just like the manual, maybe we would be better drivers if we were forced to be more engaged with our driving.
