    This brings back a few memories.

    Back in the day (late 70's) I had a chance to buy a 67 bird with 40,xxx miles on it. 326/PG. I passed to buy a (yet another - I've had 6 of em) 67 Camaro with a 327 2v/PG.

    The 'bird (that light green color with green interior) was an unmolested all original version. They wanted $1600 for it. The Camaro (Marina Blue RS with black deluxe interior, probably numbers matching - back then I didn't care as I had all the stuff to make it a screamer) had 80,xxx on the clock and was priced at $1200.

    I went with the Camaro...

    Mine is gold, 93k original miles. gold leather interior. 326cubic inch I noticed it in a garage on the way home from the girl friends house, so one day i had the balls to ring the door bell and ask about it. so the old guy (orignal owner) said he was not wanting to part with it. so i left my number two days later he called and wanted to talk to me. so i went too his house and him and i looked over the car, and spoke about the car for almost two hours and we came to an agreement, he would sell me the car under three conditions. 1. Fix it right meaning replace the quarter panels dont use a bondo hack job. 2. dont put alot of stupid stickers and add on's (rice it out). and 3. keep it stock drive it and enjoy the car for what it is and how it came from the factory. With that said he held it for me and i bought it for $3500 cash. Car is running when i got it and still is. I still havent broken any of the rules he gave me, With the car i also got all the paperwork from when he bought it and the window sticker. He only paid 2680 for it back in 67.

    '02 Trans Am WS-6, 6M

    I do love seeing old cars that are still "new", its like going back in time. I'd love to have a "new" 442 coupe.I wonder if that cars even roadworthy anymore. 32 years and no road use usually means all the seals, hydraulics are shot...

    VERY nice, probably the best '79 out there with the desireable PONTIAC 400/4-spd combo, and a 10th anniversary to boot!

    A friend of mine has an uncle who supposedly has a climate controlled building full of cars w/ less than 10 miles on the ODO, including every anniversary 'Vette since '78, GNX, TTA and god knows what else. I'm waiting for the estate auction.

    I wonder if that cars even roadworthy anymore. 32 years and no road use usually means all the seals, hydraulics are shot...
    Indeed, these cars would need fresh tires and fluids at a minimum, then comes the leak checks and seal replacements. But on the other hand, at the price they'll command at auction, only a museum could afford them, they'll probably just end up sitting some more.
