Taking that comment a bit further. A 70 SS 4 speed is simply the one car that you never sell. I have bought other cars, really nice around it since, but this one stays. Mid size is perfect. Three cars have a great tight ride. Compared to Camaros it rides better. I have had first and second gen Camaro SS. The full frame far better ride than the unibody. Performance is the highlight, one of the top 6 muscle cars of all time in 1970. It falls in either the number one or 2 spots on reviews from that great era. The other was the Cuda Hemi vs the 454 LS6 Chevelle SS. I suspect the Chevelle has a better ride on this as well. This is a nice car to take a few passengers to shows etc. Although not cheap to buy, it affords tremendous satisfaction to drive and own. These cars are relatively very simple to own and maintain. No smog or pollution devices. No sensors or cats. Go to electronic ignition. They have disc brakes. Power steering and power brakes are a must. Reliable classic. I take off the car cover, unhook the battery maintainer and turn the key and go. It doesn't take long to get to a given destination. Overall very nice cars. Mine is also a great investment.

The 64 GTO would be on a top ten collector list as an early muscle car. Not 65-67. Remember top ten even though the latter years are muscle cars as well. The 70 Chevelle SS LS6 and 71 Hemi Cuda lead the list.

It's interesting looking at many CL ads lately. Although there are sellers of many various brand well executed-street rods, muscle cars, pro street, even motorcycles, they often want to trade right to a Chevelle or cash. The 66-67 and 70 SS are very popular if well restored. And doing very well. My picks in order would be Cuda Hemi, 70 SS Chevelle, 4-4-2, GTO. Everybody has their favorite. To even own one of these is a great experience. I keep turning down offers on mine. It's such a great car to own and drive that there's more to it than just money. But keeping it mint has seen its value rise more.
