#1 1987 I could have bought a 71 Barracuda convertible, B2 blue/blue/blue, column shift auto, 318, air for 450 dollars...running. The things that made me pass at the time was the floor pan rust through and the column shifted auto.
#2 1985-86 I was buggin this guy with a really nice 71 Challenger vert. FE5, white interior, white top, 318, air, rallye wheels, power top, slapstik. 1500 was his asking price and I got him down to 1250. I could not get financing for it, my dad would not cosign a loan(turns out it was the convertible that turned him off on it, he saw a couple girls die in a rollover) and the guy ended up selling it to a friend for 600 dollars lol.
#3 1994 and I had just bought my Challenger. 1973 Duster 340, 4 speed, air, sunroof, rootbeer. 1500 dollars but I just could not justify it after I had just got a cash advance on a credit card to buy my 71 Challenger.
still kick myself for all of these
