    Yeah, I paid less than $2K for my 68 Charger in 93 or 94 and sold it in cherry condition in 96 for $7500...can't hardly even touch a basket case 68 with a 383 for that these days.

    Yeah, A bodies seem to be more affordable...they just never tripped my trigger lol.

    I've always been a B or 70's E body fan.

    It's frustrating. I did buy my 70 Torino Cobra in 1986 for $2000; my kids still marvel at that. The fact you could buy a Cobra Jet 4 speed Ford for that kind of price blows their minds. I tease them about selling that one, too. It doesn't go over well.

    I love the old muscle cars, a '70 Cuda would be my choice, but the cost is ridiculous.

    My thoughts these days are doing an EV conversion, maybe a Miata, where parts are available, and won't break the bank. There are EV kits for around $7K-$8K which can be a lot of bang for the buck. Once you feel the power delivery and acceleration of an EV it's pretty addictive. In a light bodied car like a Miata it would be insane.

    If I had any fans, they'd be 'old fart fans'!

    Don't exclude old motorcycles; 6 of them will fit in the space of one '60s lead-sled.
