I agree with a lot that has been said here, from both sides. I think the further you get from the early 70's, though, the less you should have to pay for an old school T/A or Camaro. They lost some serious guts in the late 70's.
Certain low production cars, though, do warrant a beefier price tag. Any of you guys familiar with the Super Duty engine? Orignal SD-455's are in the $100k+ range. A damn shame, too. I know hardly any of those collector's would enjoy that car's power the way they should.

Even the cop don't want to give you a ticket in one as long as your not doing something REALLY STUPID. I cant tell you how many cops have pulled up next to me in a parking lot and told me they liked my car.
About 4-5 times I've popped the hood for them. Too bad this time the car will be strip only after the build. But, I have gotten my share of waves and honks going down the road even with the car on a trailer. I've even been known to pop the hood for a few people while on the trailer. That the plus for having a open trailer. ;-)

I think you will all be surprised. I have seen a lot of TA's that have been treated like crap. They aren't worth a couple thousand. That is good for the prices of our cars. I would imagine that most here on this site give a crap and your cars are in good to excellent condition. I can pick up a 99 TA convert with average miles now for about 18-20K and the car will be in good condition. 3 years ago I could buy that car for the same price. That tells me values are not Declining on these vehicle but rather holding firm as the years go by. The prices on these cars are like anything else and ruled by supply and demand. The older they get the lower the supply. I believe these cars will always be in demand because they donít make them and they are awesome vehicles. Hold on to them, and I donít think you will need to wait 40 years. I think in the next 10-20 yrs you will see values on these cars in good to excellent condition rise to about 40K and up depending on miles and Mod's.
Oh and those that are only worth a few thousand will also be worth a few thousand in 20 years when somebody wants to buy it to restore.
