Best Deal of the Day; Back in the Day

We were recently looking through some old Auto Week newspapers and stopped in the classifieds to see what we could find. Now this particular Auto Week was from February 1969 and had a lot of interesting finds.

My next step is to find a “way back machine”; scoop up some old greenbacks and see if I can pick up one of these machines and bring it back to the future!

If we knew then what we know now what would we have done differently? You can’t have everything, but tell us what you would have kept or bought if you knew then what you know now. Leave a comment below.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at

  1. It’s not legendary but has become a collector’s item because it’s the only one of its kind Dodge made of this Apollo in 1970–the first year Dodge made the Apollo model motorhome–all the years following the Apollo did not have the 1930’s retro look this one does–I am trying to sell or do a partial trade of the one I own–if you know of anyone who collects or is interested in my 1970 Dodge Apollo 26 ft fiberglass Class A please let me know. Thank you so much!

  2. One thing for sure, I’d never have traded my old 1964 Dodge Polara 2-door hardtop in. She had a 318, pushbutton transmission, and although battered I loved that car to pieces. Only paid $500 for her at a dealer too. Been a number of other old pieces of American history I’d have kept, but that was the first. The one that got away was a 1959 Buick LeSabre 4 door sedan a dealer was asking for under $1,000, complete with the original factory tissue box. Unfortunately, I was in college and couldn’t afford her. Still wish I could have though.
