    It looks like he used a sawsaw (what we call them) to cut it down. Im sure he has a buddy to weld him some pipe for a roll bar or hope he does.

          The bottom-of-the-barrel 327 option was meant exclusively for ladies. The original owner was likely a little old lady who wore those huge glasses with the chain that went around her neck, and drove it to play Canasta.

                I love these cars by the way, but I can't help but wonder about your last sentence. What will happen to the muscle car market when all the Baby Boomers are dead, something that's going to happen over the next 20 years. Nostalgia is what largely drives the prices of classic cars, but the generations after never experienced these cars as young people. Gen X'ers and beyond care a great deal less about 50's and 60's cars. Will the prices decline? Methinks so.

                That red one on the bottom is Ox's old project car. His wife is leaning against the fender to keep it from falling off.

                  You need to check and see if they updated their images. I duct taped a message for you on the top of the screen...:lol2:

                      Lexus offers cooled seats. Subaru does as well.

                        I think we've already seen that with the t-buckets and even 50 cars a little bit.

                        first generation corvette? I think there will always be a huge market.

                        Yeah I rarely see any 50's or even 60's muscle cars at the few local car shows and meets anymore but the Vette's will hold up for serious collectors.
                        Another reason for the die off in interest is most people under 30 wouldn't have a clue how to work on a car...give them a screwdriver and the dipsh!ts would likely poke their eye out with it.

                          this includes mechanics.

                          try walking in some place and telling them you want your carb adjusted and timing set... on anything. ODB techs have zero clue.
