I've owned some pretty cool older cars in the past that I wish I had kept. All got compliments, double-takes, stories from strangers and "If you want to sell, call ....." notes under the wipers) and were dirt cheap! My favorites are still with me, though in storage....safe from the salt and snow. All bought from the south, shipped up here and needed minimal if no work done. Oh, and we don't have smog tests here in Minnesota!
