One other note about the long term storage..

Bill told me that he started paying 80.00 per month in '72..And never stopped paying till 2009

Yes, that was over $26,000 in storage bills. The car now sits at just over 49,000 miles.

Re: The September 2019 Ride of the Month is Brian Aust's '67 XR-7 GT!

Good read! That's the kind of documentation of your car that I believe actually enhances the value. As a side note, Brian is proof positive that if you frequent the counter at our store regularly and ask questions like "What did I hear you talking about on that last phone call?" enough times you mi...

Re: What if you spent your entire life buying muscle cars - and never sold any?

I can't lie..I look at this video and just keep shaking my head, asking WHY?? And to what end, here? (edit to shorten) Also-how many are going to be able to drive to the auction/fairgrounds versus being towed or flat-bedded? That's gonna be expensive.
