I like the 1962 a lot. Beautiful car and it still retains its cool factor to drive around in. However, the driving experience is not even close. Maybe the exhaust note is better than a 2012, but comfort, speed, handling, and ride are much better in a 2012, not to mention reliability.
I'd love to own a 62 vert, but it would never be driven the same way as my 2008. Not unless it underwent a complete powertrain and suspension updating.
