Want to Buy a Collectible Car? Think Plain, Simple, Ugly and Odd — 10 Comments

  1. @Jacob: Yeah, that’s about right, auto shift. I feels like driving a stick, but you don’t do anything and one less pedal. It’s odd the first few times, but then it’s just part of driving.

    I haven’t paddle shifted yet because the car isn’t broken in enough.

  2. I was simply referring to the find. Urban legend or not, this would be a pretty exciting accidental investment eh?

  3. Congratulations on your great purchase! Your wife is a great person for encouraging you to make the purchase, and look how great it’s turned out for you! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Jay, has too much money. I think he owns every model ever made. It borders on silly, because he can not truly appreciate them all.

  5. @Mark: Actually, I think Jay Leno probably enjoys his cars more than most collectors – he actually drives them on the street. And his Leno’s Garage shows his love and knowledge of cars.

  6. Some people buy their muscle cars because it reminds of days long gone when they were young. Mine was a 1965 Chevelle Malibu SS, what I would give to have that baby back.
