Checking out a Cadillac & a 1973 Caprice Estate

What a gold mine this 1977 classifieds section is!
I would choose the 1973 Caprice Estate (& a few other vehicles) listed; how about you?

My cousin took this pic of me checking out a 1969 Cadillac convertible during our day road trip, 05/02/2015; not sure if I would look good in it or not.

I grew up in the Des Moines area at that time. Brings back memories of pouring over those classifieds. Amazing what the prices were back then.

Was reading a post on another site where it was mentioned that MuscleCar magazine had an article written in 1986 stating that the muscle car market had achieved an all-time high with the sale of a '70 Dodge Challenger hardtop in "top condition" with Hemi engine and 6300 original miles at Barrett-Jackson (Phoenix) for a world record $24,000!

Cool ... glad this sparked those memories! I would sure love to grab some cash & Quantum Leap back to the mid 1970s to grab some of these cars up at THOSE prices..............
