RE: Hemi Madness
Right now the aging yuppies have the money, so the rare cars they could not afford when they were young are now expensive due to supply and demand.
I like muscle cars, but not enough to own one over a vintage Cadillac, Lincoln, Mercedes, or BMW. What irks the crap out of me is that those muscle cars were built so cheap, and simple that it drives collectors like me crazy when we are restoring cars that take three times the effort but are not worth nearly as much. It is like watching Pergo flooring sell for more than antique burled walnut plank flooring. It just flat pisses you off at the ignorance of the automobile collectors.
And now, for those that think keeping a car in a climate controlled garage and driving it rarely on perfect days is stupid, I simply say you are probably a messy, self serving pig that is incapable of noticing the damage done while merely driving everyday. You are the type that drives a car into the ground then one day you lose interest like you do in so many things and wonder how it got so fucked up. And who's fault might that be but not your own of course? Don't knock what you are not sensitive enough to understand. Keep away from nice collector cars that are above your understanding.
