Dick Quinn has probably already snapped up the '41....assuming he could talk the guy down to $245. :yeahright: :cool: BP

The Studebakers are tempting but a 1962 Olds Starfire for $60.90 a month? Where's my billfold?

Thanks for posting Mr. Palmer. Boy how times have changed. If I'd have only known how things were going to work out I'd have bought a few more cars and motorcycles back in the day. I did get a few early British sports cars from the late 50's for cheap. My favorite was the 59' Triumph TR3 and the 53' Triumph Thunderbird motorcycle . I bought the TR3 for $600.00 and the Thunderbird for $350.00 back in 1969 and 1971 respectively. I enjoyed them for a few years and doubled my money when I sold them. I thought I was really smart. It hurts to realize the value of these vehicles today. Ce la vie!

I still have the 68 Pontiac Le Mans convertible I bought the end of March 1974 for $500. The way prices are going I'll keep it longer too!

Did you see the overhaul labor on an automatic transmission? $33.50 PLUS free towing! How times have changed!!
