NASHVILLE, June 24 (UPI) -- Baby Boomers are buying the cars they wish they had as teenagers, custom car restorers say.

Jim Brandea of Spring Hill, Tenn., who has an online collector car magazine called the Gear head Gazette, said baby boomers have more cash as their children get out of college and they want to recapture part of their youth, The (Nashville) Tennessean reported Sunday.

Brandea, who also co-owns custom car restoration shop called Hot Rods & Threads in College Grove, Tenn., said muscle cars such as the Dodge Challenger and Charger, Chevrolet Camry, Ford Mustang and Pontiac GOT are among the most popular cars with boomers.

"People are really wanting those cars, trying to relive the days when horsepower was king. But trucks play a role, too. It really depends on what your flavor is," he told the newspaper.
