    This one is going to auction near me this August, I wonder what it will go for? I know it will be out of my budget.

      They look pretty little....... do you think a 'big guy' would be comfortable in one?

      I know a Pantera is sweet, but even their foot pedals are too small and close for me to drive without being preoccupied with foot placement.......

        I think even small guys would feel them snug, from the ones I have seen at car shows. They have been getting crazy money at auctions lately, some have called them a poor mans Cobra.

          Wow, and to think I didn't buy one 40 years ago for $800! It was a 289 car, being sold by a college guy going to law school at Alabama. He had just bought a new Corvette IIRC. I couldn't drive it very well, my size 13 feet would hit the clutch and brake at the same time! Back then, there were loads of sports cars on the campus, and they sold cheap when the owner moved up to the next rung. I did end up buying a VW Bug for $500, it wouldn't crank without rolling it off. Ended up being the key switch was sticking, sprayed it with WD40 and never had anymore problems cranking it.
          Now the campus is full of Jap crap, Hondas, Toyotas, Mazdas, etc. The Professors drive Caddys and Lincolns and Lexus instead of sports cars.

              Jamming big engines in little & light cars !!! A very large "COOL FACTOR" !!! The 260/289 Shelby jammed into an AC Bristol British sports car. Then the 260/289 into the Sunbeam Alpine, and a few years ago, somebody was "shoe-horning" FOMOCO 5.0's (302's) in the Mazda Miata... All three of them must have been some DANGEROUS fun !!

              Geezz guys, When I look back at my life, and all of the "COULDA, SHOULDA, WOULDA" things I either passed on, or sold a few years before they were worth a 'TON of MONEY',I'd be a rich man today.
              I was in my late teens and early 20's during the glory days of the American Muscle Cars. I'd guess roughly 1964 to about 1971 or '72. (Don't 'flame' me if I'm off a year or two... nothing personal)
              MSRP's in the low to mid $3,000 dollars for brand new big V-8's in the new "PONY" cars like the Mustang, Camaro, Challenger, and even the AMX. Or bigger sedan type cars with Big Block Engines like the Roadrunner, Charger, Torino/Fairlane, Malibu, Impala.... and I'm sure I missed a few.

              Then there were the guns I SHOULD have bought for a $100 or less, or maybe, a few bucks more, 40 years ago, that are now worth a fortune. Guns I sold (LEGALLY) for "chump change" that (AGAIN) are now worth a fortune.

              Ahhh a One + acre building lot my wife and I bought at the South Jersey Shore before I retired (to build our dream house on) for when I DID retire, and sold almost immediately, when plans changed as a result of a job opportunity I just could not turn down.
              That lot sold recently in the low SIX FIGURE's ...

              Like you guys, I try like hell not to look back. But it seems there are frequent reminders of things in our past, that were NOT mistakes then, but looking back with the advantage of HINDSIGHT, sure look like mistakes, or at least missed opportunities today.

              And those are JUST the monetary mistakes I made. If I start calculating and thinking about the...........just 'plain old' mistakes I've made in my 71 years and 11 months on this Earth, I would probably have called Doctor Kovorkian's 800 phone number (if he was still alive) and ask for the 'suicide machine.'
