Default Worth every penny....

Cliff notes. 70 Cuda Convertible 440/4spd. Rough but decent. Perfect provenance, build sheet, sales sheet, window sticker, recall and maintainence documents, every single piece of paper associated with the car.

$700k and rising! This classic car stuff is getting out of hand!!!

I've got a story for you...

When my wife was 6 years old back in Pittsburgh, her grandmother took her grocery shopping. Grandma left her in the car at the top of one of those infamous Pittsburgh hills, just to "run into the store for a minute."

Well, my wife accidentally kicked the car into gear, and it rolled down the hill...CRASH!!! Right into the back of a delivery truck. Car totalled. Kid had minor injuries.

What was this car, may we ask? A BRAND NEW 1970 */* Barracuda 440 convertible w/manual tranny.

Her Grandma was a wild one!

1 million bucks would buy me a nice FLEET of bonnies!!!! And they probably wouldn't be as rusty as that beast........but then again after seeing what those rides fetch at the Barrett-Jackson auctions, I can see why they go for what they go for, but really........after paying 1 mill for a car what would you do with it? I'd have to have it attached to my hip to get a million bucks worth out of it, plus hire an armed guard to watch over it 24 hours a day!!!!

I'll stick to my Bonnie!!!!

(still a nice car though with lots of history I guess).

The seller proclaims it'* 100% complete, everything is there. What about the emblem that'* missing off the right hood bubble?

Mebbee it'* in the trunk.

I'm not going to bid now 'cause I think he'* misrepresentin'.

IMO Way too much to pay even for the history of that car. I mean what about Bonnies, maybe 25 years from now, my 94 might be the history people will be looking for at a cool $150K


I dont know, even If I was rich, I couldnt bring myself to buy a car in that condition that doesnt run

What would you do if you got a door ding in it

IIRC i saw one of those sell fully restored on Barret-Jackson for $2,000,000 +
i can't believe people would pay that much for a car...
