    In October 1970 I purchased a brand new 1966 Pontiac GTO from a dealer that squirreled it away figuring it would be a collector. It had 99 "lot" miles on it and I paid $3,600 cash for it. Damn, I miss that car, but I miss those times even more...........

    ^$650 for a 68' CS Mustang. It wouldn't run and the previous owner couldn't figure out the problem. Turned out to be a strainer inside the fuel tank that was completly plugged up with debries. Other than that the car was in very good condition and worth a lot more than I had in it. I sold it a few years later for $3,200 which was used for tuition money. Only time I ever made money on a car deal.

    1970 Cutlass Supreme with a 350 4bbl, turbine wheels and all the buttons. It cost about $3,200 with a sticker price of over $4,000. I took delivery in November and drove it to work where I was employed as a temp worker (until I could resume university) at a paint factory. The big boss saw me drive in at 7:00 AM and I was fired by noon.

    I met my future wife about 3 weeks later and we were married in June of the next year. By August, I could not afford the car so I sold it and bought a new 1970 VW Squareback for about $2,200. When I graduated 2 years later, I traded the VW and bought another similar 1972 Cutlass Supreme. The price was now about $4,000.

    We actually liked the VW Squareback a lot. My wife worked and I had 3 part time jobs. We were young with no kids, a simple apartment and had enough money to go places and do things.

    $5,680.00... I'll never forget it. The 1st Monday after I graduated from h.s., my Dad and I went to the local Pontiac dealer and I ordered a 1976 Black on Black Trans Am. He had to co-sign for me, and told me I was out of my mind. He told me about his and Mom's first house, BRAND NEW, was $13,500.00. Inflation......

    It was a new 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 2dr, black with a black vinyl top, 390 and 3 speed auto.

    Costs me $3900.00. I had to buy this car in order to get my dad to co-sign the 1900.00 I financed to get my credit rating started. I was living at home at the time and it was either that car or nothing. My monthly payments were 55.00 a month.

    Guys snickered as they drove by in their muscle cars, but the girls really liked it, so I learned to make the best of it. It really was an elegant looking car in the evening light.

    AFter I left home, my second car was a new 1968 Dodge Charger R/T with 440 magnum and Torqueflite.

    Then I was doing all the smiling, leaving the GTO's, 442's and Covettes in my rear view mirror.

    1974 Olds Cutlass Supreme loaded to the gills with options. I forget how much I paid for it. Traded in my 1966 Mustang (running, but body was in rough shape.) Dealer gave me $50.00 trade in for it. I've kicked myself 1,000 times for letting that car go for $50.00. Anyway, my monthly payment for my Cutlass was $86.15. I was worried about making such an astronomically high car payment. (remember 8 track tape players?) Cutlass had a big 8cyl motor. Car would pass everything but a gas station.
