So do you think it's sacrilege that the new Vettes lost their hideaway headlights?

Actually, I like the open headlights. Ironically, when I bought my '63, I labored over whether to buy a 1st year Sting Ray or the last of the open headlight and actual trunk models ('62).

I spent the weekend driving a third gen that I would get halfway where I was going before the vacuum popped the lights up. -- lab~rat >:-) Do you want polite or do you want sincere?

A Honda Civic or a Chevy Cavalier might have "more bang for the buck", but just not enough bang for me anyway. Why is it you think only your personal preferences are universaly valid?

My personal preferences are just that, my way of thinking. Of course there are other opinions and they are every bit as valid as mine. They differ by experiences of those who voice them. I personnally only know 2 guys that own Vettes and they both fit the criteria I laid out. Now if I could lay my hands a a 57 Vette...

Not having actually tried to purchase a 300C, I can't vouch for them being overpriced, etc... but I've seen a whole boatload of them lately. I guess "regular" is like the old obscenity test - I know it when I see it. :) Seriously, Vipers, Vettes, SS Camaros aren't regular cars. Pontiac G6's are regular cars. The 300's are regular cars. And considering that 50% of the 300's I've seen are 300C's I'm saying they're regular cars too. I guess by regular I mean "mass market" appeal and >50k sales in the US and no "special" pricing... the 300C may not be cheap, but it's not like they'll be asking $5k over sticker for one - they plan on pumping out a TON of these - they are the replacement for the LH sedans - and they sure the heck are regular cars. Regular cars are bought by "non car people" who were "just browsing" and liked the car - you don't buy a Vette that way. GTO buyers aren't looking for another car - they want a GTO.

Okay. If a 300C with Hemi is $33K+, then an SS Camaro is MORE bang for LESS bucks. Of course F-bodies are gone now but...

How about this for my "regular car" argument?
In 5 years, how many 300C's are going to be for sale with "one owner, low miles, never winter driven?" You'll find Vettes, GTO's, F-Bodys like that. Regular cars get driven in the rain and snow. People don't worry about putting a trailer hitch on a regular car. It's not just HP, it's not just $, it's not just low production numbers. It's the "attitude" - a Subaru Impreza is a regular car. A Subaru Impreza WRX is not. 300C's are regular because they're "just another sedan" - (thankfully RWD) - no limited production.... the 300C SRT or whatever they're going to call it - that might be a collector car.

Oh yeah, and how can I forget the Vette. But again, like you say the price is high. But then so is that SSR pig, and it isn't even a top notch V8.

I was driving through Atlanta yesterday afternoon & saw a guy driving a '70 or '71 Challenger R/T convertible...probably the most beautiful car I'd seen in months, 383 Magnum, blue with white interior.
I say go for the Challenger, they are beautiful cars & will only appreciate in value. I personally find the new RWD Chrysler styling hideous -- they look like they belong in a funeral procession.... my opinion only...
I'm not even a MOPAR guy, but I'd take your neighbor's car over any new GM bubblemobile....
I am 100% with you as for what GM has become. I collect 60's - 80's GM stuff... I tried to stay loyal as long as I could.... I saw a used SSR or whatever-you-call-ugly-truck-type-thing at a car lot with $39,995 on the window yesterday. WTF?!
Good luck on your quest --

As much as I love GM F-bodies the Mopar A and B bodies are some of the baddest cars ever built. I've decided that the Challenger is where I want to spend my bucks. It's not an SE or RT, just a 383 with the pistol grip 4 speed. Heck, it still the wears original F70-14 tires. I already own a 73 and a 74 (a 360 and a 340) but I've always wanted a 71 or 70 because the grill and tail lights are truly classic.
