biggest issue, if certain factions get their way, it will cost equal prices
for a permit to turn the engine over for 60 seconds in america and you better have an
approved air filtering system :unhappysmiley:

all I'll say :coffee2:

Boomers aren’t gone yet. I have adult kids, they nor their friends could give two cents about antiques, hot rods or classics as you or I do.
That's because they can't find "an app for that"!

I'm a classic! Just not worth much, my transmissions blown......

Every time I try to be the winning bidder at Mecum or Barretts, I get outbid....every time. Maybe I should bid more than 30G. I recently saw the Mecum #1 bidders numbered neck tag sell for more than a new car......whats wrong with this world:laughing7:

My Nephew recently (couple years ago) Purchased a classic Mustang Show Car, when he saw it online. I believe he called it his midlife crisis :laughing7: had it shipped to him and put it in his garage.
rarely drove it.

I can guess his youngest girl or boy will probably sneak it out ,
and get caught racing once they get old enough to drive:laughing7:

It’s like the boat show I go or watch it tell I get depressed. Then I leave or turn it off.

A matching numbers 1969 Chevelle SS with a 396, bucket seats, and a horseshoe shifter gets me every time.

Wonder why they are going for so much ?? I am buying silver and bullets, and rebuilding my F250 as I can not afford my addictions and pay around a $1,000 a month truck payments. I have even been adding to my scrap metal pile and buying lead to make bullets. I had a guy offer me a 1970 Bronco with 60k mileage that looked new for $2,500 some years back and I didn't buy it I had a brand new Explorer that I was using to hunt stuff.
