This month I am not going to do my usual format. I went to a couple of car shows and saw some cars that I liked, and thought I would show you. So... you get what I could figure out about the make/model/year... and my comments.


1994 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra - $12,995

Comments: This car had only 39K miles. It is 1 of 1000 SVT Cobras from this year, and the only year the Mustang paced the Indy 500. I did a search on AutoTrader and this car is worth what they are asking. I even looked into my finances to see if I could afford to trade in my Mini Cooper for this. Unfortunately, my current credit rating is not so good.

1972 Chevrolet El Camino - $15,500

Comments: This was the first car I saw for sale that day. I liked it. The condition made me want it. But at this price I would want to be sure it was a numbers matching car. I would not care at this price if it was a real SS, but that would be a nice bonus.

1969 Ford Mustang Fastback - $16,000


Comments:  This was the second car I saw for sale. I thought the price seemed reasonable at $16K. But this car was in rougher condition than the El Camino above. I would want to gove this car a more thorough inspection because of its visual condition. Overall... the Elky looked like it was worth the money more to me.

199? Ford Mustang LX 5.0 - $7,500

Comments: This was the last car I saw. In fact, a friend just called me and I was walking out when I saw it. I did not get a real close look. But a cursory look was enough. I realy like mid 90's LX Mustangs. These were great sleepers in their day. At this price it could be a fun project car for me and my son. If I had the cash O would have taking down the number and given this car serious consideration.

1979 Fiat 2000 Spider - $7,500

Comments: This car was at another car show. And the only one I saw for sale with a price on it at its show. I saw the sign and the price and then looked at the interior. It looked amazing. I was stunned by how clean the interior was. I don't know if was restored or really well kept, but it was the cleanest interior I have seen in a late 70's to mid 80's Italian sports car. I don't know a lot about these cars, but I would do the research if I had the money. I think this could be a fun little convertible for pleasant Sunday drives.
