NOBODY wanted it! Who wanted an old muscle car in 84?

poor gas milage and plain Jane looks. Sold it along with the original 3 thousand mile 396.
For $1700.00. The buyer put it in storage until 2003.
had the paint touched up. Found some of the original dog dish wheels. Sold it at one of the big auction places for $45,000.00

PS I also had a 69 Z/28 , put more than a couple pushrods thru the rocker arms. One time the lifter jumped out of the hole and I had to drive it home with 5 psi. on the oil gauge. Lost my butt on that one in 84 also. Muscle cars were out..
Oh my!!!
If we only knew what was gonna happen to the market with those..

I know what you mean Bob...I think of all the cars that I had and sold to cheap or the ones I didn't buy when I had the money and thought they where way to much money. I was lucky enough to buy a few nice cars at the tail end of the Muscle Car era but, in 83 my family started getting bigger, sold a few toys for a lot less than I thought they where worth but I was told that if I didn't my priorities where wrong....In the early 90's I was lucky enough to find a few good deals...One car I always wanted but again, when I had the money couldn't find one or I found one but I couldn't afford it. In 1992 I bought a 1969 AMX 390 4 gear with the "Go Pack" option, just over 40K original miles at an estate auction for $1,750...I always wanted an AMX and that's going to be a keeper for me.
