I know, right?  

My old pig truck must be worth a fortune.  All I need to do is list it on Auto Trader.  :rotf:


[edit]

Looks like I was right:  http://www.autotraderclassics.com/classic-car/1971-Dodge-D100-981777.xhtml?conversationId=4566  Wait until I show spousal unit.  Even mine is in better shape. :lmao:

I don't know, I guess it depends on where you go.  They don't go for that much around here, it seems.

http://springfield.craigslist.org/cto/3773672585.html  1964 $1800 
Two of them don't run and the third has no interior.

Good job. :rofl:

I'm... speechless.  OMFG.



$2,700.  Current registration, runs and drives.  He says there's a small patch of Bondo on the car, but that's it.

There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

Take a mass transit down, and drive it back.

This guy's almost in the middle of nowhere.  He's not quite that far out, but he's in the neighborhood.

After looking at that one you put up for $2000, I figured you were operating on quantity not quality, and grabbed the first three links.  :-)

Seems some of those listers have been watching too many episodes of Counting Cars.    :whatever:


I almost wonder what my 72 Camaro would go for.    :p

I wonder if I could sneak this home and hide it from spousal unit: 

http://springfield.craigslist.org/cto/3828407806.html


My sister took out the flower car and a mourner's Buick in a funeral procession with one of those.  Barley scratched the bumper but she was so shaken they let me drive it home (I didn't have a license but the cop figured it was better I drive, I just had a learners permit). Sis had just gotten her driver's license and had virtually no peripheral vision (they didn't really check back then).  The funeral procession was queued up on the side of the road opposite the parlor on a narrow two lane road.  A front end loader was coming the other way bouncing along taking its whole lane.  Sis saw the bouncing Michigan, jerked the wheel to the right, side swiped the Buick, that startled her, so she over corrected toward the Michigan, nope that was a bad plan, jerked right again and plowed into the flower car. 

Just about the time all this was going on the funeral was coming out.  The guy on the left of the box owned the Buick (very upset to the point of dropping the box and yelling bad things)   It was quite a show.  Sister crying, flower car took a good hit in the middle of the bed, the Buick, probably a '58 with fins, had real damage to the left rear fin, chrome hanging off.  Cop, who was there for the procession, was of the Barney Fife model and pretty useless.  Yup, it was quite a scene.  :rotf: 

Sis was teased unmercifully over that by the kids in the neighborhood who use to run the other way when ever she got behind the wheel.  I only rode with her once after that years later in Norfolk, and it was no less harrowing an experience.  That time I managed to save my two year old niece from going through the windshield taking her full weight on my outstretched arm as Sis locked up the binders to avoid T-boning a driver as someone ran a red light. Kids seats weren't all that well anchored back then either.  Arm hurt for weeks. 

Notice the push button shift?  It was not a flawless system IIRC.  Other than that shifter issue those were a great car.  Built like a tank.
Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.

:yahoo:

This thing is pretty sweet.  80% of the interior is trashed and needs refurbing or replacing, but the rest of the car is in good shape.  The 260 runs smooth and the 3-speed FordOmatic shifts better than my shitbox Toyota.  Ford managed to make a mid-sized car that handles like a big one.  It feels like a big, floaty boat but still steers well.  I had a blast tearing around the back roads where this guy lived.  It has manual steering but the wheel is so big it doesn't feel like it.  I will need to get a couple sets of cheap bench-seat covers.  The air conditioning works but is probably low on refrigerant.
