Comments: Long time readers of this column may recall that the first car I even put on this column was a 73 Road Runner. That was almost 7 years ago. I still have a soft spot in my heart for these. Typical of older guys remembering a car from our youth. I am not diluting myself into thinking this example was a really good Muscle Car. It was after almost all the Muscle Cars were neutered. But I still like the styling... and would love to see that hood as a functional Ram Air hood. Something I am sure the engineers that designed it had planned before the government stepped it with the polution controls of the times.


1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass - $12,900

Description: Gorgeous Torch Red paint is deep and luscious. The Body is straight. Solid Southern car Bought in San Antonio Texas. All Original body is extremely solid. Original floors & trunk pan no rust underneath. The original front and Rear bumpers are Very Nice and fit great. 14" Chrome wheels with Olds center caps. All doors, hood and trunk align properly and open and close easily. The car Looks Incredible and is Extremely solid. Auto transmission, power steering, power brakes, original 10 bolt rear end. This is a Nice Driver Quality Cutlass with a sweet ride and drive that will make you believe that it is 1966 all over again.

Comments: I really liked the Olds version of this body style. But it took a really nice one like this to remind me of that.

Comments: My fetish for Camaros usually has me forget about Firebirds. But this one caught my eye.

Comments: Wow... a big block Mopar for a reasonable price. They worded their ad carefully. I believe "This is a correct 383 - G code car" means this is not a numbers matching car. It has some kind of replacement engine. I don't know for sure, but a buyer should verify it. Other than that... I like it. Blue is my favorite color. This car would make a great Road Runner Clone. But why bother... it looks good enough as is. The wheels set the car of very nice. These are the same wheels I had on my 73 Road Runner. I like them. And I like the car.


1971 Chevrolet Nova SS - $14.900

Description: This is a True SS350 4 speed car. It has original floors and trunk and the interior looks original too. The car has descent driver quality paint, it shines nice and looks good. the paint is Black poly and is a 6.5 out of 10 above average. 12 bolt multi leaf rear end, power disc brakes, dual exhaust bracket and SS hood. under dash AC that works. Good ride, drive and stop.

Comments: When I was a kid (really... a kid) I had a friend whose sister had a black 71 Nova. Except her had a 396 big block, with manual steering and manual brakes. She bought it off a guy that use to drag race it. An go figure... she bought the car in 73... with that 396 in it even though the car was originally a 350 car. You don't see many people swapping engines in cars less than two years old anymore. Well, except for the rich people that can afford to do all kinds of crazy stuff with new cars. So here is another car that brings back memories of riding around with my friend when he got the car from his sister.


1972 Chevrolet Chevelle - $14,999

Description: Show quality paint. 350 engine with TH350 automatic transmission. Bench seat, power steering, power disc brakes, air conditioning (not working), matching numbers cars.

Comments: This one almost escaped my glance. The cream colored interior... I don't think so. But then I saw that is has show quality paint. I can't tell from the pictures, but I sure would like to see this in person. You could always take the interior to actual white... or black.
