Not a muscle car but here’s an example of my Dad’s car, a 1960 Cadillac Coupe Deville. Ours is black on grey and in need of a total restoration. We’re gonna bag it, stuff the biggest wheels we can fit under it, shave the door handles/locks, custom interior, and put a LOUD stereo in it. Still unsure of the drive train, either a supercharged/turboed Northstar or a 500 ci mildly modified big block Caddy motor.
In the past I’ve had:
1988 Mustang GT…all the usual bolt on’s, big stereo, Saleen wing, custom wheels, new paint, never seen the snow, etc… Totaled it, other drivers fault.
1978 Chevy Z28… not an IROC, but close enough for this paison. Paint changed colors, mild drivetrain upgrades, all body panels customized, t-tops, nice stereo etc… Sold it at a 50% loss.
1986 Olds 442… One of my favorite cars looks wise, maroon/silver w/ maroon interior. It had exhaust, K&N air filter, some other mild performance upgrades. Had big plans for it but most of it fell through and I sold it. Sold it at a 75% loss.
My father had a couple cars that he wished he’d kept:
1966 Olds 442 W-30 package. It was his first car, bought brand new, and he didn’t realize that they only made 54 w-30’s. His was even more rare as it was almond on black with a THREE speed from the factory. We can only IMAGINE how much that car would be worth today.
1969 Olds Cutlass… I think it was red with a black vinyl top, black interior. It had a 350 OLDS w/ an automatic, power steering, brakes, nice wheels, and some other stuff.
