The Jaguar E type, the cat that has more media lives than the celebrated F type itself, an Aston Martin whose badge actually starts with David Brown, the Mercedes called Pagoda, a Lincoln Continental sprawled out like a beached whale, an Auburn from the early nineteens, a Jeep Grand Wagoneer with its classic wood casing or a stingray straight out of a sci-fi, a Daihatsu 1600 that is sized up next to a Land Cruiser workhorse from the sixties… This Aston Martin 1966 spells out the DB initials in the rear badge The Emirates Classic Cars Festival concludes tomorrow and could be the best way to spend a whole day, or the whole weekend if you are impressed by old metal that still hasn’t lost its gleam.

The day of the compact car had come. Buick sales plummeted 37 percent from 1957, but that's not the half of it -- because 1957's volume, in turn, had reached barely over half that of the pace-setting 1955 season.

There are the cars we drive to work every day, the cars we use to take our kids to school, the cars we pick up groceries with and the ones we use to haul stuff from The Home Depot.

They're the ones that border on rolling art. The cars that most consider to be miracles of engineering. The ones that glorify speed and luxury. The ones that are best described as madness sitting on four rubber tires. As long as people have been driving, cars like these have existed.

See more pictures of classic cars. ©iStockphoto.com/alacatr There's a reason you call that hunk of metal in your garage your baby. Whether it's a cream-colored '37 Buick, a turquoise '57 Chevy or a cherry red '77 Camaro Z-28, you treat it like one of the family -- maybe a little better. But no matter how protective you are of your kid-on-wheels, you'll still need to insure it. Driving a classic car even short distances on the road without auto insurance is both risky and illegal.
