There are pickup lines that car guys and gals appreciate, they’re the sculptural curves and creases that give a pickup truck its classic visual appeal. But there also are that other kind of pick up lines, the sort some consider an effective icebreaker when it comes to catching the attention someone you find interesting.
For example, dating expert Will Smith to Eva Mendes in the 2005 movie, Hitch: “I couldn’t help but notice that you look a lot like my next girlfriend.”
Or Clint Eastwood to Meryl Streep in The Bridges of Madison County: “When I think of why I make pictures, the reason that I can come up just seems that I’ve been making my way here. It seems right now that all I’ve ever done in my life is making my way here to you.”
Or the Casablanca classic: “Is that cannon fire or is it my heart pounding?”
With Valentine’s Day approaching, and if you are a car person dreading being stuck alone yet again on February 15 — Singles Awareness Day (aka SAD) — ClassicCars.com has compiled a few pickup pick up lines you might consider, and we’ve even matched each of them to a real truck, and who wouldn’t rather have a real classic pickup instead of some silly chocolate heart or diamond necklace?
“You’re so beautiful that you made me forget my pick up line.”
Perhaps, but no one could forget such a gorgeous pick up as this 1965 Chevrolet C-10.
“You don’t need keys to drive me crazy.”
But you will need keys to drive this 1965 Ford F100.
“I hope there’s a fire truck nearby, cause you’re smokin’!”
This line might best be delivered as you have your wingman turn the corner and approach in your vintage 1959 Ford fire truck.
“Falling for you would be a very short trip.”
Show up in this 1962 Volkswagen pickup and the short trip you’ll be making could be to the wedding chapel
“If I followed you home, would you keep me?
And who wouldn’t want to cuddle up and keep this oh-so-cute 1929 Ford Model A?
“Do you have a map, because I just got lost in your eyes.”
But wouldn’t it be fun to find you way back, even after you wandered far from pavement in this 1970 Ford Bronco?
“Is it hot in here, or is it just you?”
Speaking of hot, how hot is this 1930 ford Model A hot-rod pickup truck?
