What used to cost a few hundred dollars to fix the damage on a 60s car would total a new car.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

My dad drove like a little ole lady but demanded muscle so he more often that not drove a sleeper.
1st was the '67 Couger XR7 w/ HO 289cuin in aqua.  After that it was a '72 LTD Brougham w/ 429 cu in big block in black jade.  He seldom got into it...  I remember we were returning from Jacksonville to Miami
after my grandfather's funeral.  5 people in the car, loaded to the hilt with luggage and pulling a single axle U-haul trailer.  We were merging back onto the florida turnpike after gasing up and eating lunch when some asshat in a Mach 1 passed him on the ramp almost putting us in the ditch.  He saw red and stomped.  Bet the mach 1 was surprised when we went right back past him pulling a trailer with a car full of sour faces....  We broke both motor mounts in the LTD doing it.....

Dad never cared for big horse power. As long as the car would cruise at 90mph with 5 or 6 people and luggage he was happy. He was more into gas mileage.

Who needs radio when you can hear the engine... or the sound of gas gushing into the carbs

It is true, there is something about an American V8 and that burble and roar. European V8s have a different firing order I understand. Hence they don't sound so good...
Was sure I had a point when I started this post...
