View Full Version : I want this car...

But can't justify it with the way things are going (gas and all). Is it not a beauty......a diamond in the rough if you will. I'm debating selling my stuff to buy it, and I've never thought that with a car before.

you can get one cheaper than that, those things don't have much demand

Yeah but his one is down a page or two on CL. Big difference in price...but yeah. I dount I'll buy it. I've got other things to do of more importance to the family. I'll just blow a few hundred on my ZX2 most likely....to make up for it. Hah.

the unfortunate thing about those cars is that people having decent ones think they should get the same price as people ask for ones from the 50's and ask twice what they're worth. I know where a early 60's one is sitting in a shop longer than i've been alive. is it nice? yea but it's not worth the 20k or more that the owner thinks it's worth since it's been sitting forever and would doubtless need going thru before it'd be roadworthy. For a big cruiser like that I'd love to have a 68-70 chrysler 300, esp convert

Yeah I just liked that tbird for some reason (the first one....no way in hell would I pay that much for the second, or probably any, car). I seen another one on CL too that was interesting....its a 1969 T-bird 2-door soft top for 1000 or best offer. It looks like it has potential too, just wasn't as snazzy as the LX.
Oh well, I can daydream if I want too......
(here's the 69 if you wanted a looksie-http://denver.craigslist.org/car/755902497.html)

looks like it just has the vinyl covering notorious for that time, they can save or kill a roof depending on if water can get in, all are nice cruisers
that's what i'd want, or a convert from 69

That's nice....I dig the inset hood locks. Kinda reminds me of a luxury version of a roadrunner. I always wanted a roadrunner when I was younger....until I priced one.
Gotta love good old american iron. They just don't make em like that anymore for sure.
