People treat their cars differently. Some car owners fuss over thier "iron horses" while others think it to be nothing but "a piece of iron". However, it would stick in one's throat calling some cars "a piece of iron"!
These are cars which are 40, 50 or even 70 years old and they still run! This February, a couple of dozens of retro cars showed up in Sevastopol arousing great interest of hundrends of viewers.
