But my slowest car is also the one that surprised me by also being the one that turns the most heads and gets the most thumbs up.

1929 Ford Model A Roadster Pickup. All 100% stock.

One of these:

37 bhp NA diesel on a 1700 odd Kg body. Getting anywhere was a study in conservation of momentum. BTW, they also came with drum brakes. However, since they came with rubber reinforced steel bumpers, it was usually whatever you used to stop it that got dented. :P

That actually looks pretty cool for a slow ride...

I agree, apparently they were exported to the UK as well (Some people will buy anything :) ). The back seat could rival most american sedans for utility :P

Right after I graduated from high school I had a job in a factory where they made furniture out of whiskey barrels. One of my jobs was to load the kiln with fresh barrels to be baked until they were dry. Not only was that a nasty job in itself, but it required driving an ancient stake bed truck powered by natural gas to the other end of the factory to get the barrels. It was powered by LP gas, and if it went two miles an hour you were doing good. No pictures, and that was in 1977, so hopefully its gone to the junkyard by now.

No question for me ... my daughter's 1993 VW cabriolet. High mileage, low compression, tiny tires ... it struggles with more than 2 people in the car. PERFECT!!! I'm sooooooo glad she doesn't have anything that she can drive too fast.

(and I'm assuming that a garden tractor doesn't count) ;)

Probably a cute car for her, despite being velocity-challenged. :D

A Pontiac T1000. I used it for my driving ed class in 1980 I think. It had a hard time going up the fairly flat entry ramp to the highway..... WTF The max speed was literally 55mph.

my 1987 Chevrolet S10 is pretty slow despite being a v6. It has a hard time going up hills or accelerating from a stop.


I had an 89 honda accord that had some engine trouble that was also very slow. But before the trouble it was surprisingly quick.

Personal was a 1990 Suzuki Samurai, stock 66 HP baby!! With me driving and 2 good sized buddies in it we were lucky to hit 30 going up a freeway hill. But take it out in the woods and it would go places. That thing was so small, it would fit on the dirt bike trails.

I too, had a Samurai. 1987 with 62 screaming Hamsters under the hood. Fastest I ever got it was 85mph, downhill...with a tailwind.

You really learn how to think 10 steps ahead when trying to merge onto a freeway with that thing. At 60mph, the side mirrors would collapse inward do to the massive speed.

I once passed a cop going 80mph (downhill again) on a freeway, I was NOT pulled over...he probably thought he was hallucinating.

Yeah, slower than a snail but damn fun off-road!
