Default Re: One that got away

Too many to count! However a couple that still bring tears to my eyes were a 1 owner 65 K code Mustang coupe, thats more rare than a K code in a fastback or convert.. My friend parked it at 92000 miles, it had jumped time, sold it to me for $200. I did a quick fix, drove it thru the summer of 1973 and sold it for a $1000! About the same time I got a 66 Nova (L79, 350 horse 327) from the original owner, had 48000 miles, he now had a wife and kids and wanted a station wagon. The dealer was offering him $300 for the car on trade, I gave him $325. It was a fun car, 4 speed, 12 bolt/4.10 gears, SS package and marina blue. I kept it around for a couple years and sold it in about 1975 for $1100!
Had a 64 R code galaxie once, but thats another sad story....
