Yeah, my chances of getting a classic muscle car as a first car are slim to none because of this. My dad said that when he was in highschool (which was around 1980-83) he could have gotten a Hemi 'Cuda in good conditon for $2000 or less. He said that he and his friends used to take out old muscle cars and just beat them around not knowing they would have been worth anything in the future. He even flipped over a Dodge Challenger R/T 383!!!
1990 Plymouth Laser RS Turbo [Projekt Redline]

I know exaactly what you mean. My uncle has a 65 Ford Mustang GT that he just wont sell. It just sits there under a cover and a 2 in. layer of dust. He hasn't turned the engine in like 4 years. The body is amazing for its age, no rust, no dents, almost perfect. The paint is showing its age (I beleive it was red when it rolled off the assembly line. It's kinda orange now.) I'm pretty sure all the numbers match. The only thing that need restoration is the interior. ITs pretty ****ed up. Oh, and it's sitting on aftermarket wheels (with flat tires from lack of use). I must have made him a million offers and he just wont budge. It breaks my heart everytime I see her (the stang).
