Finally, we have purchased a tasteful car y'all cannot deride...

'89 IROC Z with 5k miles. All options. F bodies are shooting up in value, and the mega low odometers are leading the way. Good color scheme and max options are mandatory for stiff price.

My daughter traded her RS some years back for a Mustang GT convertible. Before she turned the keys over, we had to drive to a dark part of the used car lot (not an easy thing to do!) and surreptitiously bail the water out of the aquarium that GM so thoughtfully designed under that huge piece of glass in the back.

Nice car, but how does the price compare with, say, a Ferrari?

Nice looking and will appreciate well.

Any time you have a car that has national conventions you are going to have a good buyers market any time you want to sell a good example.

Nice find.
