I see a few more Pinto's around than Vega's. Sad. Not sad that there aren't enough just sad that they are some of the worst American cars every produced.

Had a Cosworth Vega back in the day. It was fast and good looking but didn't have AC and the windshield leaked copiously when it rained. It was a lot of fun to drive.

 

 

They were sequentially numbered, mine was #0029

Somehow the words "fast" and "Vega" just don't seem to belong in the same sentence! :rotflmao:

 

Seriously, Vega, Pinto, and the lovely GMC Hornet/Rambler. Iconic American crap cars! It'd be kinda fun to hunt down some Hornet hubcaps and slap them on a newer car.

The Vega always did have decent geometry for cornering but the original engine lacked HP and of course the build was terrible. The Cosworth engine had 4 valves per cylinder and twin overhead cams. Like my girlfriend at the time, it was fast, it was fun, and I was glad to get rid of it!

Haha, thanks for the laugh!

Nice car!  Now owned by a good friend of mine, at the opposite side of the country.

I don't think enough of these cars were ever made to have a big enough of a following to make it "Explode" in value. It doesn't matter to me because I am keeping my '93 MR2 Turbo, purchased in 2000, forever.

I'll add to the list. Audi TT first gen. When it was replaced it seemed like it was about time for a new one, but when you see one now, you remember why you loved it.

A buddy of mine had one when I had one of my Miatas , we swapped for a week and I took his TT and he took my Miata. It was fun and although it shared the platform with the Golf and Beetle of the day, the mannerisms were totally different and significantly better. I was a neat car but not enough to differentiate it from other options nothing wowed me. The roaster with the baseball glove interior was a sharp car, especially in gray but would sooner have a Z3.

Has anyone seen the prices of Porsches lately, specifically early 911/930 Turbos? Some are hitting the $200K mark. I didn't see that coming. 

post #103 of 105

All Porsches seem to be caught up.  Mid year 911s are even fetching fancy numbers.  I just can't get my hands around that one.  At least the early turbo's had some significance.  Not much over a year ago you could buy a RS America for $60,000 - $80,000 now command well over $100,000.  Just silly.

Not silly if you own one:D

Has anyone seen the prices of S2000's lately? You cannot find an clean one with less than 75K for much under $15K. Not that I think they should, they are sweet sweet rides. I am shocked that they have been out now for over 15 years, time flies. I do love the silver/red combo:
