Check this car out. I'm going to go take a look at the car tomorrow night. I just want to look at this car, the owner says 1 of 28, 1 of 14 left known to still exist. I know it's not a wagon or even GM, but you all will think this car is super nice.

$159k? Really? I don't understand these mopar guys.

I'd rather have a ZR1 and a fleet of wagons. $159k? Hell, I don't know, or a house. Or better yet, a ZR1 AND a house.

THe fuselage-styled 71 and up are not as popular as the more boxy 70 and older models. I think they look great though, and you just don't see them much anymore.

That one looks awesome!

If I was going to have a Chrysler though, give me a 68 Charger, black on black, with a 383, 4-spd, and chrome Magnum 500 wheels. Best looking car Chryler ever dreamed up.

You just spelled out why I start yelling at the TV when the Barrett-Jackson auctions and such come on. It's AMAZING what some of these go for now. Now admittedly that 71 is a rare car, but even basic stuff pulls stupid prices.

At 36 I'm by no means an old guy, but I remember riding around in musclecars in the 1980's....when they were USED as cars. Our realtor when we moved to Colorado in 1984 drove a 70 Road Runner. There was a 3rd grade school teacher I knew who drove a 69 Hurst Olds to work every day. It was beat-up, but real. In my high school parking lot, and remember this is in 1991, in addition to my 69 LeMans convertible, there was a 70 GTO coupe, a 69 Cutlass Supreme, a 66 Chevelle SS, and our shop teacher drove a 66 Corvette.

These were cars. We drove them to the Grand Union, to school, to work, worked on them on the weekends and USED them.

Now you'd think they were gold-plated masterpieces.

If I can ever get to a point where I can restore the 67 GTO, once it's done, you better believe I'm going to DRIVE it and not just rub it with a diaper.

Rant over.

You have to remember thou, for every car that comes across the block at B-J for crazy money, 5 more don't. And you'll never see those on TV. Plus B-J is not a fair view of what collector cars go for. But thanks to them they've driven up the prices because now everyone thinks they have a B-J car.

Exactly the reason I don't watch them. They just focus on the millionaires with nothing better to spend their money on.

WHAT NICK SAID!Of course we may have to explain that to some of the youngsters.Most
excellent joke and timing of course you are probably going to get yelled at.Mike you dont
know what cheap musclecars were back in the 73/74 gas crisis.I rmember a cherry 289
cobra for a 1000 bucks and that was negotiable.

The only reason he is asking that rediculous price is because of the overated HEMI.Never was
that fast on the street unless you had racing gas and a set of 4.56 gears so the engine had to
rev like crazy.Or had Chrysler on your speedial to work on it like the "Silver Bullet"did.

I think if I wanted a Chrysler hot-rod I'd buy something like this and build me a good clone.

For some reason there are still a lot of 66-74 Chrysler's around down here. You still see them behind people's houses and out in the country.
