Cars I bought in that era had 12000 mile warranties. I plan on selling 2 of my classics to fund a 67 Fastback. That car has been on my bucket list to own for over 20 years.

What made you get a valve job? Did it stop running? Run poorly? What else was done with the valve job? What engine did it have?

Wow, who would want a nice 67 Shelby Fastback Mustang worth over 100K? Or more for a KR500. Who would want a 70 Cuda Hemi, 70 Chevelle SS LS6, GTO Ram Air IV or a 67 Corvette 427 Tri Power? It keeps the passion and dream alive to bust your butt or brain to own any of these pinnacle pieces of American motoring history. Even to own any of these at some point in your life is quite an experience! Keeps you off the couch and out of the Dr's office.

I am not fond of kits, but really like the 67 Eleanor recreation. A really beautiful car. But then you are well over 6 figures again for a kit. But it's well done. Anyone that owns this or nice classics surely has new daily drivers as well. If you go with fuel injection, disc brakes, modern tires etc on classics, it's very minimal maintenance. Just add wax.

Mustangs are a great choice, even in base form. Parts are readily available, and you can add more upgrades as your budget allows. There are many other choices, but this would be a great everyman father son project especially.

Seemed pretty obvious. The point is a 67 Mustang is desirable; more so than the earlier commenter that came down hard on this car. The 67 Fastback is also highly desirable if you do your research. Even if you don't like it, park it in a garage. It will be a nice retirement savings account for you. Sell it later.

Okay this review was written LAST WEEK, and the reviewer is still apparently seething with anger over a warranty claim on a 1967 Mustang? Wow I'd hate to be a butcher who gave you a tough cut of meat, or a barber who took a little too much off the top.

Most individuals purchase classics to drive them, not park them. I know I used to drive mine as much as I could, even 6 hour road trips from time to time. Driving them plays a big role in enjoying them.

I also see ours as a nice piggy bank in the garage. There are many unsafe investments - even housing. Every year that passes there are less survivors through accidents, leaving the country etc. It's a tangible material asset, not like on paper that can drop like a brick overnight. Very low mileage classics like a 67 fastback can be parked. Drive it or not, just keep it maintained.

I saw a 67 Fastback that was ordered with a 6! Had triple carbs. And automatic. Highly unusual. Beautiful body design. Amazed me to see that one could order this combination. You could buy a new one back in the day in the 3500 price range. What a bargain. Shelby models were always pretty expensive. A real KR500 car is a real nice one to share in a garage with either a 427 Cobra 2 seater or a 96 Dodge Viper GTS as a collector. Raw HP with minimal options. That's not even getting into modern Mustangs yet to pick from.

Oh, that's right -- it's a well-known fact that when someone owns 2 "classics", at least one of them is ALWAYS a '70 Chevelle.

Well, if you read their comments from other threads, that's what the state they own.

What Chevelle? This is a Classic Ford sports car review. Not a family sedan I can pick at least a dozen Mustangs from 64 1/2 to 72 to collect for openers. Different options, even from the same year. Boss 302 and Mach 1. A 55-57 T Bird would be nice. Early 60s Galaxie Thunderbolt or Torino GT If Mercury could be picked, maybe a nice Cougar Eliminator. Maybe a Cyclone GT. On and on. You can easily pick 20, let alone 2 Ford models to collect easily.

There's thousands upon thousands of reviews and vehicles on here. How do you know what other vehicles this reviewer owns and what state they are from? In fact there are people on here worldwide.

We have shared comments on other threads before. They also have a breathtaking review on this site about the '70 Chevelle. All I did a few days ago was comment that I would keep the Chevelle rather than sell it.
