Boy were you sharp....NOT LUCKY...just sharp...
During the 1973 Oil Crisis I remember plenty of my friends bitching
about the price of gasoline and selling their cars or swapping in a
small block ... Plus Southern States stopped selling & delivering
gasoline to fill residential gas tanks such as I had for personal
Honestly I wish I had your "smarts" in 73 and 74....
But I didn't
I sold my truck and purchased a Vette....a Chevette unfortunately
NOT a Corvette ...
64 72 76 79 & 95 Corvettes ....Chevette is long gone.. lol

Dang - 500 bucks in '74 would equate to buying a '98 for $1,973 and
change. I bought my '67 in '79 for $6000, as I recall, which would be
$16,083 today for a '93. Me thinks the depreciation isn't what it used
Year vs. dollar worth is a pretty fun little exercise for certain items:
My '67 went out the door of it's Pennsylvania dealership (in '67) for
just shy of $5000. Today that would be $29,132 today. This is not to say
the current Corvettes are overpriced - consider all the technology,
amenities and safety features of today vs. '67.
Here's waving to ya - \||||
