Ask anyone born before the Reagan administration and you’ll hear as much. They’ll rattle off lines from “Sabrina,” mention “Roman Holiday” and inevitably the conversation turns to “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

Ask anyone born before the Reagan administration and they’ll rattle off the paint colors available on ‘Vettes from the 60s, the beautiful lines from the 50s convertibles and the quarter-mile times of the 427s and Stingrays drag racing through their dreams at night.

But nostalgia has a way of distorting reality. The cache bought by history gets checked at the parking lot of car shows. After that, Holly Golightly better Holly Gofast or she’s not selling cars anymore.
