On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!"

Isn't Blitzen a German automobile?

  1. No, it is a taste delight. A wonderful croissant pasty with a delicious creamy filling.

  10. Beautiful car. I'd love to see a pic of your '67 Cougar, Peggy. I have a 1999. Mine is almost an antique now. How old does a car need to be for it to be considered an antique?

  11. Russell, this may be heart breaking, but your car is used. Sorry, antique is from 1945 to 1974. Ancient is 1945 and prior.1974 to 1999, may be collectible , but most likely it is just used.

  12. Thanks, Anonymous. My heart is not broken. I am actually aware that my car is just used. I was just curious what age a car has to be for it to be considered an antique, collectible, etc. I had heard what the basic requirements were once, but had forgotten.

    I am not expecting my car to ever fall into one of these categories or be worth anything. I am just glad the damn thing still runs and I don't owe anything on it any longer.

    Thanks for your clarification.
