    If you could go back in time for one day to buy one new car for what they were selling for back in the day...what year & which car would you choose?...

    I'd go back to 1967 & buy a big-block Corvette Stingray roadster - JoeBerg

    I believe the year was 1964, when the Shelby Cobra came out with the 427 engine in it. Supposedly went from 0-100 and back to 0 in 10 seconds! I believe right now they are priceless.

    1968 Hemi Charger 3X blk, 727, and 391 Posi ... I think the car sold for about $4500 and change at Grand Spaulding (Mr. Norms) Dodge back in 68 and now you cannot touch them for $150,000 if they are nice and original ... Barrett/Jackson sold 2 (1 black/1 green) at their last sale and both went off of the paper ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Owned one of these for a while. Got married and traded it for a more "reasonable"
    car. Wish I still had it.

    Hairy has another good idea.... only mine would be the Dodge Daytona in Plum Crazy.

    A great big convertable from the late 50's-early 60's, a red 1965 Pontiac Bonneville for instance.

    My 1966 barrier blue GTO coupe with black cordoba top. Black interior with bucket seats and a chrome console with 4 speed transmission. Wrote the check to the dealer with shaking hands. $2632.00. I still dream about that car.

    My choice would be any of the older 1950 and 1960 full size cars with an inline six and a manual transmission.

    I would really like to have a 1953 Hudson Hornet with the "Twin H Power" 308 cubic inch six. Lee Petty drove one in the early days of NASCAR and my uncle had one. We all loved to ride in it. It was very fast and smooth. When you lifted the hood, there was plenty of room to get to any part of the engine.

    Probably a 53 Corvette. Would then sell it and buy a car that was a good car today. Which ever would sell for the most today.

    Cars did not last like they do today and I sure do not want to have to drive one now.

    Maybe good for those days but I like the ones made today. Ray
