I have been a race fan all my life. As a kid just out of high school, I had a '68 Camaro that I used to take out to the local drag strip and race on weekends. These days, a kid just out of high school normally wouldn't be able to afford a '68 Camaro, but this was back in the swinging 70's when you could buy a nice one for just $1000. I wish I had hung onto all my cars from back then. I had GTO's, Chevelles, a Mustang, an El Camino, and a Buick Grandsport all purchased for around $1000 each, give or take a little. The best buy I made was a '66 Impala SS convertible, original one owner with 39k miles for $75. I'm guessing it would be worth about $30k now.
