    I had a 1970 Cuda I bought used in 1973. I was 17. No a/c, no FM, no power anything. It had a 383 Mag, Hurst pistol grip 4 speed, rally instruments, rally wheels, black vinyl top, 3:73 Dana PTrk and a Craig 8 track floor mount tape deck. It was top banana yellow. It had about 60,000 miles on it and needed a clutch and tires. I gave just under $1000 for it and fixed it all with what I made pumping gas.

    When I left for College 4 years later I got a dang robin egg blue 73 2 door Ford LTD Brougham with reclining seats. It more suited my interests at the time. :D

    Left the Cuda in my dad's drive way. He sold it to some guy a year later for $100 to just get it out of his way. :eek:

    I saw the a car in identical colors, power train and options sell on BJ for $150,000 a couple of years ago.

    My 1986 Ram50 truck (made by Mitsubishi) Not exactly the Mopar you may be looking for... I never did anything but change oil and the truck had the best charcoal gray paint of any vehicle I have owned. When I polished and waxed that truck it looked like a mirror. I think I paid $6,300 for it so it was one of the best, cheapest rides I have ever owned.

    I sold my 1965 Sport Fury with the 426 Wedge. One of two car mistakes in my life.

    2006 300C SRT8. It was my most dependable car ever. I nearly gave it away, good thing it was to a friend. I may buy it back someday, he never drives it.

    One of my first cars was a 1970 Charger RT. It was not that nice (for back then). In retrospect compared to what people will restore today, I wish I kept it considering what I sold it for. I did replace it with a 69 Charger RT SE in my favorite color, Copper T5. I always liked the 69 year better anyway, so I guess it worked out. (but 2 would of been better!)

    Probably my '72 Dodge Charger. I know it wasn't the most popular of the Charger body styles and it handled like a grocery cart, but I owned it during the mid point of my Navy career and I had to move again...and I had newer cars, so I sold it for chump change instead.

    I had one just like it. Probably should have put another 50,000 miles on it.
