The 70's were a crazy time. Back then, old cars were just old cars. I can remember spending hours dreaming about $500-$2500 Cobras, Chevrons, Lolas, Porsches, Mercedes, Lotuses, and Jaguars in the Competiton Press classifieds.
That's rather depressing LOL. Even adjusted for inflation those are nearly free compared to what we've got to pay now. I guess buy the cars we can now so that in 20 years we're not priced out of those too. 😁
