VIN 3435 1970 240Z bought new in Montgomery, AL Aug 1970 for $3000. Traded with second child in the oven in 1973. Another Air force officer bought it and he contacted me in 1989 to ask if I wanted to buy the car. I bought it for the second time for $3000, the same as when new.

What a cool thread with a life of its own......started in 2002, went dormant in 2003, revived after seven years in 2010, went dormant again in 2010, and just revived in 2017.

I look forward to seeing it brought back in 2024.

October !974, 260Z purchased from Bob Sharp's dealership for $5280 I believe which included taxes and fees.

Stolen and stripped 14 months later. I personally saw two street sweepers trying to yank the wheels off as I got there with the police after someone called them. The engine and tranny, interior, doors, hood and most of the glass was gone or damaged beyond repair.

I took my VW Porsche powered MicroBus out of storage and used it for a year before it was crushed by my (ex)wife after she thought I was cheating on her. I wasn't and she bought me a restored Volvo 544 with a B16 engine as a made-up gift.

At times I waffle as to which one I would want back if I could only choose one of them. I think a good 544 might be the cheapest one to buy today.

Now that would have been a conversation I would have like to have heard! Not like she threw your favorite Hawaiian shirt out, but crushed your car? I think I would have cheated then!

I notice you said "ex". Did that ever come up in the divorce proceedings?

The window sticker that was in the glove box said $3,600 in 1972 for the base car. Spoilers and rocker stripes brought it to $4,000.  I got it, not running because of crudded fuel tank clog up the filters, for $2,000 a few years ago. Hubcapped in my signature below.  I've got about $5,000 in it now, the other picture with Rewinds.

Stop waffling, settle on the 544, you'll sleep better at night,  Also, the 544 has a better resale value when it comes time to move on.  :D

Back then I was running projects that took me away for months at a time and we would hire a local person to handle all the paperwork, calls, etc. We had to let her go and she ended up making calls to my house and saying things that weren't true. Wife was pissed about my being away, then this and when I didn't make it back for her birthday she had the VW towed to a scrap yard where they took the engine out along with the tank and pressed the rest into a rectangle which they deposited in the front lawn.

You guys want me to put this poll back up on the main page?  Or, would it be better to start a new poll with todays prices?

Please, start a new poll with same name and 2017 in it!   Or old and new one side by side..
