"$381 in 1927 equals $5,306.53 in 2018. I'll still take a dozen"

But you can pay $30,000 or more for a new Ford truck.

Or maybe people like it because they can be bigger assholes if they think nobody can see them.

Anyway, Rolls-Royce hood lady.
The hood ornament looks better.

Would you buy this for $12,000? It is all original and runs like a bat outta hell.

$12,000?

Something's up with that car, or it's in pretty rough condition...

The VIN # alone ought to be worth close to that.

'68-69?

Why do airbag's get the apostrophe but electric windows don't?

He's wrong about the electronic injection though.

Some of the bells and whistles on newer cars make them more reliable.

My dad was always talking about "the points" being the problem when our 70's era VW bus wouldn't start. He had this thickness guage that he was regularly using to adjust them. Kept the guage handy in the ashtray up front. Modern ignition systems and fuel injection are far superior to points and carburetors and make a car exponentially more reliable.

Yes more reliable with less maintenance, but when it doesn't work you need some very expensive diagnostic equipment to find out which of the eleventeen expensive computers is at fault.
