Seems there is a lot of talk on blogs about car values and declining prices. A lot of us " older car buffs " talk about back when we bought cars dirt cheap and really enjoyed them and tried to make each one an individual with a very limited budget. Racing, drag or oval, was a backyard hobby so to speak. Then came race cars new from the dealers and dirt cheap. Most of us would go through a car every year or 2. Then suddenly in 70's the gov. put an enviromental stop on detroit. With an economy similar to todays people began putting money in things that last, cars art etc. Then came the roaring 90's and every Tom Dick and Harry got into the collecting game, plus the thousands overseas now shipped them out of the country, putting the real car guys in a bind to find and own great cars. Now they may be gone, at least for a while. My ? now is are there many real enthusiast left? For the first time in almost 30 year there is a great opprotunity to own a true classic or original and not be kept awake all night over how much you spent. Like we have heard for years "Be carefull what you wish for, you might get it "
