I'll just have to keep it til I kick off and let the wife cry about all the low ball offers. It won't be any skin off my back by that time, ha.

That's what I'm thinking about my 1938 chevy coupe. One of my boys will get it maybe one day.

I am maybe going to look at a 1951 Ford F1 Sunday if we come close on the terms before I make the drive. The truck looks good in all the pictures. I'm not a ford guy but at least it has a CHEVY engine in it.

Let' see ...
A '67 GTO convertible, a '57 Belaire with a 425-hp 409, a '70 Z-28, a '68 Olds 442, and a '63 Impala SS
Not to mention the '69 Charger, a couple GTOs, an AAR Cuda, and a couple Panhead Harleys that I didn't buy when I had the chance .....

NOPE!! Have no idea what you're talking about

Jay Leno said it best: "Buy what you like. That way you're not stuck with something you hate if the price goes down."

Really, it's a crap shoot. In the early-80's, you could buy as many first-generation Camaros as you wanted for $500 because nobody wanted them; and nobody would have ever imagined a VW Bug bringing big bucks.

And I haven't forgotten the time I had a chance to buy an AAR Cuda that was about half-way through a high dollar restoration (NOS rims, interior, and wiring harnesses still in the boxes) for $1200

Or the time a collector was telling me about this '69 Trans Am convertible (one of eight made) that was sitting in a junk yard in Boulder, CO ...
"It's not worth it," she said. "It hit a tree and it would cost you $30k to fix it up."
Even if it had cost me double that to bring it up to Barrett-Jackson standards, it would have been the best $60k I've ever spent

It's taken me (way too many) years to figure the formula out also, but there are easy ways to build powerful and dependable "hot rods" today that also get good milage. my 62 Vette gets 25+MPG in all around driving with the L-98 and 6 speed trans. my current build is a 59 Chevy with LS1 and 6 speed, and I expect that to be similar. I do own a Chevy (geo) Metro that I run my in town errands in, and it gets well over 40mpg, but that just helps me afford more gas for my 4wd Dodge truck

Guess this is also on the downslide for desirability. As a couple of others have stated, it will just have to go into my "estate"

I also think the Prius is high on the future value list. at least if it had the "optional" engine package.

Every time I see someone with an older truck all fixed up nice it's always a shortbed, is there any chance that longbed trucks will be valuable eventually? I actually like the look of a longbed more.

No, because I own one.

I always lose, so that means if you have what I have, you're toast.

Then again, I don't really care. I drive the thing for ten years, it will lose the same as driving a new car for ten years. What's the difference?
