Hey, it could be a good deal. Might be someone who uses the "mikey method" and you'll get a girl in the trunk as a bonus.

Might not be so good if she's been in there a while...:P

Perfect. Just Perfect! A wildly expensive Impy, a killer finders fee, AND another mouth to feed.

You're killin' me Smalls

No, thank you. I am not interested in classic cars. It looks nice though.

Re: Where to put $37K retirement check

Oldest thing I ever owned was a 64 Impala with the 250 straight six, a whole hell of a lot of rust (Boston car), no floorboards remaining under the rugs, and a trunk big enough to hold at least 8 large suitcases if it werent for the highly likely prospect of them falling through and taking out the gas tank with them on the way to the ground.

$100. Kept chugging along for about 4 months.

Re: Where to put $37K retirement check

1937 stock Chevy Coupe - in the early 60's.

1961 Pontiac Bonneville in the early 70's. Also a 1954 Chevy Suburban in the 70's as a go fishing vehicle. They would start in winter on the days my XKE (1967) would not.

Re: Where to put $37K retirement check

Right now I own a 1983 Ford Ranger, bought at a yard sale.
Looked cheap and saleable, so I bought it. Having some trouble
selling it and would just keep it except for the
"residual" costs (license, registration, insurance). Actually I bought it because I view it as Texas rancher chic. Unfortunately, I don't have the ranch, but I could. Wouldn't that be something?

Re: Where to put $37K retirement check

1955 Chevy Bel Air. Got it in Florida in 1965. Verrrry Rusty. Kept it until I shipped out. I also owned a 1956 Olds 98. Brother wrecked it. Neither one cost very much, because if they did, I could not have afforded it. I had a 1962 Dodge Dart, slant 6.

Re: Where to put $37K retirement check

I own at 1950 GMC pick up truck with front window visor and have it registored as a farm truck. Talk about Texas ranch chic. I run it at least once a week doing light duty. It has floor starter (no soloniod), one wiper (vacuum), no seat bealts, one tail light, no back up lights, no turn signals, no speedometer, real running boards, no running lights, three on the tree, no syncromesh, a down draft tube for oil case gases, no PCV valve, I add a lead addtive to the gas, 6 volt system, and a current inspection sticker.

No plastic, all steel body oncstruction. Have owned it almost 30 years and it still runs and will run long after I am dead and buried.

Hey, that sound like my '83 Ford. Last time I was in Texas, I visited
a friend's ranch (he has the hat and the cattle). Anyway, he drives around
in a rust bucket S-10 Chevy, grinding the gears and spewing
hay and Angus poop as he checks out his spread. I was thinking,
"Man this is so cool. " "This guy is a millionaire and secure enough to drive
a $500 truck". Well, now I have the truck. All I need is the ranch and the
cattle

Re: Where to put $37K retirement check

Hey Ol_Rancher.....I see a lot of trucks in Texas with
"farm truck" plates. What are the advantages? How do you
qualify? Thanks.
