Actually looked at a 67 GTO last week almost got weak enough to write the check.

The price tag would have made me weak

Years ago, before coming back to the farm, I had a '66 Corvette convertible. Both tops. 427 big block, 515 hp. 4 speed Hurst shifter, side pipes. Elkhart green. I also had a 1970 LT-1 Corvette convertible also with both tops. The LT-1 was a small block 350 with 370hp. 650 Holley. 4 speed. Silver with black leather interior. Air conditioning was not an option as it took away from the horsepower. Hooker headers & side pipes. The '66 went to some collector in Dallas and the '70 went to a guy in Washington state. My parents thought I couldn't be part of the farm and own cars like that so it was STRONGLY suggested they be sold. What a mistake.

Bet that's worth a pretty penny! Last time I priced those they were getting $$$$. Color?

If you don't mind me asking, what was the condition and asking price?

Mopar muscle cars have really started fetching some money.

Always thought the first T-birds were neat cars. About like your Model A though, I don't think I'd be physically able to drive one!

That, is pretty much on the avg scale CB, for a well cared for and restored GTO.
I liked the goats a lot, but if I were going to invest time and $$ in one, it would have to be one with 389+tri-power. Because I'm good with floats and jets, and needles....and linkage.

Ouch, don't blame you for walking.

I paid $5100 for mine, though that was a few moons ago. At the time, it was a 20/20 show car - 20' and 20 MPH. All jokes aside, it's one of the better investments I've ever made, percentage-wise.

Dam, you could buy 3 trucks for that much based on the junk you drive. Maybe 6 of those crappy dodges you've been driving lately
