If there’s one place in New York City where creaky, rusty, cool old cars come to congregate, it’s Brooklyn’s hipster capital of Williamsburg, soon to be shut off from the world when their subway gets nuked. Let’s go look at its cars!

Actually, we’re going to get the hell out of Williamsburg as quickly as possible because hipster cars are no fun. We’re going to go out of the thrift store and mayo shops hug and up into the Greenpoint-Williamsburg Industrial Business Zone, of the coolest parts of the city.

Why is it so cool? Because some of the best old survivor cars hang out there, and we’re gonna go look at them.

When trucks were trucks...regular cab with an eight food bed and puke green paint.

I keep looking at $50k F-150's to lease, but I’m thinking 2017 Fusion Sport or 3.0 MKZ, and a 1988 F-150 I-6 manual. My last ran $400 and I made a profit selling it. $55k Lincoln and $400 truck. Perfect combo.
