My kids had to have a license, and enough money for insurance.

Then I would match what money they had saved towards the first car.

So, a job was mandatory.

I didn't have any help with my cars, but back in those days insurance was not mandatory.

Maybe GM had it figured out via Dual-Gate and A/C :)


I tried and tried to buy a 67 GTO vert with the dual gate when I was 16, before I settled on a 69. Later I ended up with a 68 that had the dual gate (his/hers). Not the same as a stick.

What is shocking to me is the fact that an air/auto musclecar is more desirable than the equivalent 4 speed car.   Just shows where things are going and why resto-mods are popular.


I'm definitely one of those guys that walks around shows and looks in disdain when I see an automatic in a musclecar,  especially a column auto!   But those days seem to be changing.

I am with you though I do see the point West and Matt are making. Somehow sporty , muscle car and automatic don't add up to me. That being said, this car has to be the best buy on a Shelby that I have seen in a long time.
