When looking at cars in the Midwest look for cars from the 70's; they don't
exist, much less cars from the 50's and 60's. You see those only on sunny
days in the summer or at cruises. It's unusal to find many cars older than
1985 on the road; Audi, Benz, Chev or Ford.
This is pretty true in both Milwaukee and Chicago.
To see older cars you have to head south to Georgia area.
